“Down Below Or Up Above” Blake Morgan

Blake Morgan’s new video for “Down Below Or Up Above” gives homage to classic Hollywood-era noir films. “The music video is like if Gene Kelly had starred in ‘The Third Man,’” says Morgan with a smile. “We shot in Central Park at night so I’m lit only by moonlight, street lamps, and a couple of flashlights when needed. Within ten minutes of shooting we were wonderfully unsure of what century we were in.” The video was Directed by NYC filmmaker and photographer Alice Teeple.

“Down Below Or Up Above” is the first single from Blake Morgan’s forthcoming new album Violent Delights, out May 20th, 2022 on ECR Music Group.

Teeple and Morgan’s shared love of 1930’s and 40’s film noir––and specifically the work of directors Orson Welles, Fritz Lang, and John Huston––gave birth to the idea of the music video for Morgan’s new single. “Alice is a remarkable artist, she combines film techniques from ages ago and today, seamlessly. We looked at some of the videos Anton Corbijn’s made with Tom Waits which also have that feeling. We wanted something striking, something beautiful, but also something provocative and playful.”

In the studio, Morgan has recorded and produced Lenny Kravitz to Lesley Gore. The recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and native New Yorker is also the founder and President of independent global-music company ECR Music Group. He lectures frequently, including at The Georgetown University Law Center, California State University, Syracuse University, NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, American University, and at his alma mater, Berklee College of Music. His music advocacy has taken him to Capitol Hill numerous times where, as the founder of the #IRespectMusic movement, he continues to fight for music makers’ rights in the digital age.
