Sorne Biography

Born at the highest point of elevation in the Panhandle, right up against an Indian burial ground, Morgan Sorne grew up with dreams of Indians coming out of the woods surrounding his home. His mother, an opera singer, enrolled him in a music program after her voice coach suggested it. Sorne remembers hating it profoundly even at the age of three, but after throwing a maraca at a kid's face, his days at the school for the gifted ended. Music never left him.

In the last few years, Sorne has written over 80 songs. The first 13 were released in 2011 in his debut album, House of Stone, and he's working on releasing more this year on his sophomore record, "ego altar." The album will feature songs from the perspectives of the five siblings, the star characters of the House of Stone saga.

Set in no particular time or place, the story speaks of family relationships, focusing on the death of the father and highlighting Sorne's obsession with the Divine Mother.

House of Stone grew in his mind for years, the characters initially born as direct reflections of his mother and her siblings. House of Stone evolved from childhood views of family into characters with a life of their own, each representing, in Sorne's words, "archetypes of the human condition." Today, SORNE the band includes Morgan, Kevin Naquin and Deano, along with a production team that brings Sorne's music and visual artistry to life.

This past summer, SORNE caught the attention of Kyp Malone, Tunde Adebimpe and Jaleel Bunton of TV on the Radio and were asked to open for them on a short tour, performing to sold-out crowds at such prestigious venues as The Fillmore in Miami Beach, House of Blues in Orlando, Florida Theatre in Jacksonville, Jannus Live in St.Petersburg and Cains Ballroom in Tulsa,OK., amongst others.

In 2012, Sorne performed with international acts TV on the Radio, Beats Antique, James Blake, Dr, Dog, Dawes, Blitzen Trapper, Little Dragon, Rubblebucket and more. SORNE is poised to make 2013 a break out year.
