Morgan Lindstrøm (born 29 April 1956 in Oslo) is a Norwegian artist, composer, and synthesizer-performer.

Lindstrøm was a member of the synth-duo Langsomt Mot Nord during their "Westrveg" period.[1]

His style has been described as "... rock propelled with influences from Norwegian folk and classical music, the synth work sometimes taking on the Michael Garrison wall-of-sound feel, with the finesse of early Vangelis".[2][3]

Before Langsomt Mot Nord, Lindstrøm was a member of the band "Ixi". Ixi participated on a record released by NRK radio in 1982, containing the chosen bands from "Ungdommens Radioavis Rockemønstring", a competition of upcoming bands. Ixi was later seen in the renowned Club 7 in Oslo.[4]

He is the brother of another Norwegian artist, Rune Lindstrøm of deLillos.[5]

In 2007 Lindstøm started an electropop-band called SoulSheen, with Kaja Norum (lead vocals), Madeleine Schee (vocals) and Mikjel Helmers and Lindstrøm on synthesizers. The band have websites on http://www.soulsheen.com/ and http://www.myspace.com/soulsheen.

Lindstrøm have produced remixes under the alias Morganix for the Norwegian electronica-groups Schnodig, Substaat (2016)[6][7][8] and Electro Spectre (2018),[9] in partnership with singer Kjersti Helene Larsen.
