Musician/artist Sorne coming to Cumberland

Studio Live on April 14

Morgan Sorne is a multi-dimensional enigma. A prolific visual artist, musician, actor and filmmaker, boasting a four-octave vocal range with perfect pitch.

He brings listeners to tears with his unparalleled hypnotic angelic falsetto, and has churned crowds into a rocking frenzy with his bone-rattling dynamicism and range.

He has performed and played at some of the most prestigious venues in America, and now he is coming to Cumberland.

Sorne will play at Studio Live on April 14. He will also host a vocal workshop earlier in the day.

Sorne’s meteoric success has truly made him one to watch. He is destined for the world stage.

At the age of 23, and within the first six months of relocating to Austin, he was one of the youngest emerging artists to represent contemporary art in Texas, chosen by Art in America for the Texas Biennial. He was one of 63 selected artists, beating out thousands of submissions by mid-career and veteran artists.

Having performed on the stage since the age of three, Sorne has passionately pursued his career at all levels, earning a BFA in studio art, and has achieved the critical acclaim of noteworthy musicians and creative titans of the performing arts. To date, he has received Avant Garde Artist of the Year by the Austin Music Awards, successfully funded and fulfilled a Kickstarter for his epic, six-album opera, House of Stone and was invited to perform at Art Basel in Miami.

Catch him at Studio Live April 14 at 8 p.m. Advance tickets ($15) are available at Bop City Records (Courtenay), Blue Heron Books (Comox), and Rider’s Pizza (Cumberland). Tickets will be $20 at the door, if available.

His afternoon workshop ($20-40 scale) is from 1-3 p.m., also at Studio Live. For more info, go to www.facebook.com/events/1568700406780737/
