The Person Behind The Voice: Morgan Nicole Music

Mozart’s is no stranger to the Austin music scene, and neither is Indie Pop Singer/Songwriter, Morgan Nicole. She may have only been performing at Mozart’s for 1 year now, but she has been heavily involved in the music industry since she was just 12 years old.

If you have heard her play anywhere in town, you know that her voice is incredible and her music so beautiful; but there is even more to her than that!

We asked Morgan the typical Mozart’s Story Questions, and here’s what she has to say:

Favorite Drink at Mozart’s: Iced Latte

Favorite Dessert at Mozart’s: Oreo Cheesecake

We also like to ask all of our guest bloggers what they love about Mozart’s! She said she loves Mozart’s for it’s atmosphere, it’s view of the lake, it’s friendly staff, great coffee, and delicious treats. “I love hanging out and playing on the beautiful deck with all the lights. It’s always a friendly and supportive crowd”, says Morgan.

“Mozart’s represents everything great about Austin. It supports the live music scene, the college crowd, families, and even business people who come to work and enjoy the atmosphere.” We couldn’t agree more with you!

A fun fact for you to know is that she has been in Austin since she was 4 years old! She was homeschooled growing up so being present at a coffee shop, on her laptop, surrounded by people is no foreign atmosphere to her. She said she feels right at home here!

Be sure to check out her music online through her site here as well as her Instagram page here.

She will be performing LIVE at Mozart’s again on September 28th. A night you don’t want to miss!

Morgan — thank you for blessing us with your talents and entertaining us while we sip our coffee. We hope to continue this relationship for a long time.

Meet McKenna: Musician, Rower, and Iced Green Tea Lover

McKenna Michels has quite the story. You can find her playing music almost every weekend at Mozart’s, but her journey to get there was more a leap of faith. Here is what McKenna has to say about facing her fears and doing something she has never done before.

“I have two special experiences at Mozart’s. The first is when I met Stacey (one of the owners of Mozart’s Coffee Roasters). I am a musician and had never performed. I had about 3 songs written and wanted to start doing something with them. I had seen music at Mozart’s before and knew it was similar to my sound. So the Saturday before Mother’s Day 2019 I went in and asked how I could play, which was a major leap of faith for me. Stacey listened to my nervous pitch and took the chance to listen to my music. She responded “how about tomorrow?”. For me, this moment was special because it was a major milestone for me to gain the confidence to perform. Mozart’s took a chance on me from day one and gave me the chance to start following my dreams.

There’s more to McKenna than her musical talent. We asked her for some fun facts about herself and she said, “I’m a rower on the University of Texas’s Women’s Rowing team. I’m also majoring in Business Technology, which no one ever expects because I’m a singer! Another thing no one expects, I was classically trained in Opera when I was in high school. I even performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC my senior year.” So many talents!

McKenna’s go to order at Mozart’s is definitely an Iced Green Tea. Sometimes she will throw in an Iced Coffee, though. Her go to dessert is hands down the Gluten-Free Cheesecake. She said the White Chocolate on top is “just too good!”.

Another special thing that keeps her coming back to Mozart’s time and time again is the crowd. “Whether I’m performing, studying, enjoying nature, or talking with friends, it’s always an amazing environment. People are incredibly friendly and open to talking to you and truly appreciate the special environment of Mozart’s” says McKenna.

Her biggest supporters? The kids at Mozart’s! “They are always so excited and I sometimes invite them up to the front to sing Disney songs with me. This happened in July, but these girls were my first real fans. They wanted pictures with me, of me, and to play along and sing. It touches my heart every time because I used to be the exact same way, it brings back incredible memories.”

As mentioned above, you can find McKenna playing at Mozart’s almost every weekend. Be sure to follow her on Instagram @mckennamichelsmusic! And guess what… she’s releasing an album later this month so be sure to follow along so you can continue to support her!

McKenna — thank you for being an inspiration to us all. You will always have a family cheering you on here at Mozart’s.
