Seth Nyquist (born 1992), better known as MorMor, is a Canadian indie pop singer and songwriter.[1]


Seth Nyquist was born in Toronto, where he grew up with his adoptive mother, English professor Mary Nyquist, and his sister.[2][3][4] He was in a foster home initially and then got adopted by a Swedish family. "Mormor" is a reference to his grandmother, with ”mormor” meaning grandmother in Swedish.[5] Nyquist sang in the school choir and played trumpet in a band.[3] After he finished school, Nyquist started to study sociology at Toronto's Ryerson University.[3] He dropped out after one semester and decided to focus on his musical career instead. He took piano and vocal training.[3]

In 2015, he released his debut EP Live for Nothing under the moniker MorMor, which was the name he used to call his late grandmother.[6] In 2018, MorMor released the EP Heaven's Only Wishful through his own label Don't Guess.[3]

In 2019, he received a SOCAN Songwriting Prize nomination for the song "Whatever Comes to Mind".[7]
