Greetings! This is Mogey McDonough, a singer, songwriter based in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. I perform under the moniker "Elysium". I am influenced by many of rock and roll's greats; including Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, The Eagles, and Bob Dylan, as well as some alternative bands like Better Than Ezra, Del Amitri, Gin Blossoms, Hootie and the Blowfish, Soul Asylum, Counting Crows, Pete Yorn and The Replacements.
I play, mainly, original songs on acoustic guitar. My first album Elysium - A Condition of Ideal Happiness was released in 2011. The songs are original and I had some lyrical help on a couple of them from my wife Jennifer and my brother. A new collection of songs - Elysium - Dichotomous Thinking - has been completed and is uploaded on the site. I am a "reluctant performer" who is interested in collaborating and/or writing for other performers. Contact me if you are interested in working on a project together!
