Perth, Australia – Perth-based recording artist Morgan Fraser, better known as Yngfraser, has been making waves in the music industry with his unique blend of R&B and hip-hop. His passion for music began when he discovered the music of Michael Jackson at a young age, and it was further fuelled by watching Justin Bieber reach the top of the entertainment industry in 2010. Fraser has since set his sights on becoming the biggest artist to come out of Australia.
After years of experimenting with writing and recording his own music, Fraser emerged onto the music scene in 2017 by posting covers of well-known R&B and hip-hop tracks on social media. His cover of DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One,” which he wrote and performed an original verse for, quickly went viral on SoundCloud and now has over 1.7 million plays.
Building on this momentum, Fraser began writing and recording his own original music, which showcased his unique style and clever songwriting ability. He draws inspiration from artists like Drake, Chris Brown, Post Malone, and Tory Lanez, and his music is known for its engaging hip-hop beats and lyrics that touch on timeless R&B themes of love, lust, and heartbreak.
In 2020, Yngfraser released his debut EP “Seasons,” which was followed by a year of growth and refinement of his sound. His debut album “When the Time Comes,” which was released in November 2022, has already garnered over 600,000 streams to date.
Yngfraser’s music is characterized by his ability to blur the lines between R&B vocals and melodic hip-hop, making him one of the most versatile artists in the industry. While tracks like “Too Soon” and “Dnd” showcase his ability to create catchy hooks, other tracks like “Find Your Way” and “When the Time Comes” reveal the depth of his songwriting, as he explores themes of pressure, sadness, and the challenges that come with high expectations and selfish ambition. With his impressive discography and undeniable talent, Yngfraser is definitely an artist to watch in the coming years.
