guccihighwaters Releases Live Album joke's on you: the bedroom ballads
In Support Of Recently Released Debut joke’s on you
Singer/producer Morgan Murphy, who creates under the moniker guccihighwaters released his debut album, joke’s on you, back in January. In celebration of the release, Murphy recently hosted a livestream performance, filmed in an intimate setting designed to look like his bedroom recording studio. During the livestream, he performed reimagined versions of the hottest tracks off joke’s on you accompanied by a string section, fuzzy pianos & his signature minimalist lo-fi beats which paint a melancholic atmosphere. The livestream is available to watch via YouTube. Today, guccihighwaters releases the reimagined live recording digital via all streaming platforms.
Conceived by revisiting his old recording process – isolated in a room with nothing but a laptop and some basic music equipment – joke's on you captures the momentum and emotion of guccihighwaters. A quiet and sensitive introvert, Murphy often stood in the shadow of doubts of his peers. joke’s on you candidly refers to the lack of confidence others had in him in the early stages of his career.
Despite his recent success, which has him poised for pop stardom, guccihighwaters hasn’t always embraced attention or popularity. “I was very shy…I didn't say much. I was always nervous to be in social situations,” Murphy confesses. However, when he uncovered the ability to namelessly create on the internet, a feeling of freedom came over him and he found a sense of belonging, admitting that “it was like a secret party that I just discovered.” This breakthrough was monumental to the creation and success of guccihighwaters. As Murphy made “friends” at that “party,” he used his tenacious ebb and flow storytelling style, his unwavering passion for perfection and a blue-collar work ethic to cultivate and shape an eager and vibrant fanbase of over 1 million monthly listeners and over 260 million streams on Spotify who all subscribe to his community approach to emotional connection.
