Blue invites you to spend part of your Thursday night streaming a performance from singer-songwriter Kyle Morgan. Morgan is originally from central Pennsylvania, and he recorded his debut album there while bussing tables at an Olive Garden. He then took on the moniker Starcrossed Lovers and released two more albums. These days, he’s back to recording under his own name and calls Queens, New York, home. Hop onto Blue’s Facebook page for the live show of Americana, alt-country and retro rock tunes from Morgan.
