Morgan La Civita Continues Dedication To National Downs Syndrome Society

Morgen La Civita continues her efforts to bring awareness to NDSS.org through her music.

Morgen had already made her mark in the world of radio and television voice overs, as well as commercial copy writing, when she made the transition to songwriting.

In less than 18 months, she has been featured on 14 albums, has had several songs licensed by top tier music libraries and has received radio airplay on major market stations, including WWOZ in New Orleans, Jazz88 in San Francisco and NBC's "Good Morning New Orleans".

While "Old Souls" is  La Civita's second album, it is also in a way her first.

Her debut release "From the Basement" was a collection of music from her successful catalog ,and though personal and dramatic,  "Old Souls" tells you exactly who she is as an artist.

Each song tells a personal and intriguing story that keeps the listener captivated with the album's unique fusion of Blues, Soul, and World music.

Intense percussion rhythms blended with slide guitar and moving piano pieces, take you on a journey around the world and then back again to a Louisiana bayou.

The album opens with "On and On", a Celtic influenced "swamp song" and ends with the moving acoustic piano version of Morgen's tribute to voodoo queen Marie Laveau, entitled "Pretty Marie".

Along the way, check out award winning tracks "Who is This Woman"(honored as one of Songwriter Universe Magazine's Top 5 songs of the month for October) and "Grandmother's Song"(American Songwriter Magazine's 2Place winner for October) which tell personal stories from Ms. La Civita's childhood.

"Old Souls" is now available digitally via iTunes, CDBaby and Amazon.com.

100% of  proceeds from "Old Souls" will again go to benefit NDSS.org.
