About

Morningsiders is a rotating cast of musicians helmed by guitarist-songwriter Magnus Ferguson and singer-violinist Reid Jenkins. Formed at Columbia University in 2011, Morningsiders explore the intersection of folk-americana and indie-rock. In August of 2015, their single “Empress” was the #1 song on Spotify’s Viral charts in both the USA and the world. In 2017 and 2018, they released a series of singles once a month, culminating in an album called “A Little Lift.”

These days, Magnus and Reid live in different cities and aren’t on the touring grind, but they continue to write and record together with an ever-expanding cast of musicians. Their 2019 album “Pollen” is a project born out of this period in their lives.
