The solo project of New York artist Morgan Z, Chrome Canyon creates analog synth-powered tracks. Morgan spent his youth on the outskirts of southern California’s San Fernando Valley. His parents had him on piano by 6. At 16, he moved into that same living room and gave his bedroom over to housing his collected gear.
After studying jazz at New York City’s New School and a college job selling keyboards at Sam Ash in Times Square, he played in the glammy electro outfit Apes & Androids, but when that ended, he retreated to his private Brooklyn studio where he began to amass analog synthesizers at an obsessive rate.
As Chrome Canyon, he released the debut album ‘Elemental Themes’ in 2012. Before that, Chrome Canyon worked with Phoebe Oglesbee to record a cover version of Suspended in Gaffa.
