Morgen Hare

Hailing from Minnesota, Morgen followed the music and her heart and chose to make Chicago her home! As an alumnus of Columbia College Chicago with a vocal performance major, she has over 25 years of experience mastering the art of music, dance, and performance. As a sought-after and trusted vocalist of Chicago, she has had the honor of sharing the stage alongside artists such as Koko Taylor, Louisiana Red, Buddy Guy, Styx, Everclear, Steve Augeri of Journey, Rusted Root, and Randall Hall of Lynyrd Skynyrd. Whether working as a studio vocalist, recording for TV and radio commercials, or live shows, Morgen can fulfill any performance need. She works as a commercial session vocalist and is the bandleader and lead singer of Spoken Four, the internationally traveled, award-winning cover band. She is also the proud owner of ChiVibe Inc.(pronounced SHY-vibe), which offers marketing consulting, coaching, and more. To say this woman is driven is an understatement. Morgen is a one-of-a-kind show-stopping performer guaranteed to spark passion and joy in all who watch her in her element. The stage is where her heart is, and the audience is who she chooses to share it with.

Radius is an all-male identifying vocal ensemble, hailing from different corners of the country. Radius was formed in the midst of the global pandemic with the intention of creating top-tier virtual content and bringing some light to the world during the lockdown period. After working on virtual projects for several months, the group started to hit their stride and was fortunate enough to spend a week together in Chicago that summer, where their debut EP, Silver Lining, was created. From that point on, it was apparent that Radius was more than just a quarantine passion project: it was a group of talented, passionate, and hardworking friends who wanted to take their artistry to the next level.
