If you need a little something to accompany you on the walk to your next final, we have video evidence of people being talented at Columbia. Here’s “Empress,” the new music video from Morningsiders (a.k.a. a really cool band whose blurb is below). Enjoy! And maybe get inspired.
Morningsiders is Magnus Ferguson, Reid Jenkins, Robert Frech, Vladimir Bernstein, and Benjamin Kreitman. Initially a collaboration between Magnus (guitar/vocals) and Reid (fiddle/vocals), the band expanded in 2012 to include Rob (piano), Vlad (bass/vocals), and Ben (trumpet/drums/vocals). Their sound, a nuanced blend of bluegrass-inspired folk-pop, is the result of a collaborative songwriting process and draws from each member’s unique musical background. Morningsiders has played at the Sweet Chariot Music Festival, Pianos, Postcrypt Coffeehouse, and is the house opener for the Jenkins’ House Concert series. They are excited and humbled by the enthusiastic support from friends and fans, and hope that you enjoy their new video for “Empress.”
