Biography

In 1993, New Jersey native, Chrissy Morgan was graduating from high school with honors. She had lettered in choir, won “Outstanding Vocalist” at the “Festivals of Music” choir competition, and was voted by her peers as “Most Musical” and “Most Theatrical.” A year later, she moved to Michigan where she continued to pursue her creative outlets.

A bit out her element when she first moved to Michigan, she began in the local theatre scene. She began with acting classes at Second City Detroit and Planet Ant in Hamtramck to get her foot in the door. From there, she took parts in independent films including the local sci-fi series "In ZER0" and Jeffrey Thomas McHale’s feature "Bedtime Stories,” as well as several plays at the Abreact Theatre in Detroit.

This was an amazing creative outlet, but her passion was always music. This 4 time Detroit Music Awards nominee has joined on more than 20 different recordings and performs with just as many local bands. Her most recognizable venture would have to be the original alternative funk band, Bricktown Station, for which she has been the frontwoman and lead songwriter for more than a decade. Like any working musician in Detroit, one project is usually not enough. Joining as a backup vocalist with such bands as The Sights, Paul Miles, and Joe Jaber & The Last Divide has helped her take her vocal career on the road to South By Southwest in Texas, on local radio and TV stations, and just about everywhere in between.


Although she sings around town at every opportunity, her most popular stage continues to be at home while listening to local detroit public radio. That's where you can find her other half, and number one fan, Christopher. His major support has helped lead to a solid 15 year marriage. Chrissy states, “He has been there for me when the crowd was so big I couldn't find him...he has been there for me when he was the only audience member”. An inspiration, the motivation, and of course, her muse. The two live in a ranch in metro Detroit with Little One Big Tail (cat) and Fish (fish). The happy couple spends their spare time back country camping and hiking in the woods, miles away from the everyday hassles of life. Christina, Chrissy, C-S#ARP, The Voice, Mrs. Morgan, Steeners. Whatever name you may call her, don't call her unmotivated. This girl has made a name for herself as someone with dedication, passion, and talent. Her self-proclaimed slogan, “hardest working girl in sno biz”, will be a thing of the past if this talented money train keeps on going the route it's taking.
