In Brooklyn – UK Top 50 Viral Tracks

We released ‘In Brooklyn’ as a single this week on Spotify.  The song has had some really lovely feedback and support from traditional and internet radio alike. The song came from a true story – so for me, that always gives the song the edge in terms of what it means to me. I’ve been gunning for ‘In Brooklyn’ to do good things – a bit like a parent shipping the kids off on the first day of school – hoping they make friends.

We’ve all had reason to smile this week though… as ‘In Brooklyn’ made it into the UK top 50 Viral Tracks. I was in Oslo with the team from Drabant when the news broke – smiles and celebrations all round.

Here’s me playing it live:-

Edison Gloriette – Clippings

As well as some lovely radio support, here are a few of the magazine and blog clippings we’ve had so far…

‘Jess Morgan’s songwriting pedigree shines through on Edison Gloriette.’ **** R2 Magazine

‘This girl could rock out hard, just as easily as she can keep it folk. Be sure to add this one to your collection’ – **** Maverick Magazine

‘All in all this album deserves to be Jess’s breakthrough. It’s by all turns troubling, moving and ultimately life-affirming; made with skill, passion and love.’ Shire Folk

‘[Edison Gloriette] demonstrates her poetic articulacy and expert melodic ability’
Country Music People

‘a really lovely voice singing and song-writing’ Ricky Ross, BBC Scotland

Edison Gloriette – Playlisted

Following some terrific radio support from favourite BBC Scotland DJs – Ricky Ross, Roddy Hart and Iain Anderson – ‘Skate While You’re Skinny’ was playlisted on BBC Scotland this week!

We also got played out by Mark Radcliffe on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show, and repeated support from Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music. I’m also delighted that Ralph MacLean and Cherrie McIllwaine in Northern Ireland, Frank Hennessey in Wales and BBC stations in England have all played several tracks from the album.

UPDATE*

Spotify playlists have grown in imporance significantly since I last made a record. I’m really pleased to see that tracks from this album are making it into playlists – bringing my music to new people who otherwise, might not have heard of me.

‘In The Woods’ is a dreamy contemporary folk playlist – featuring a track from me – but also from my good buddy and excellent singer-songwriter from Oslo, Siv Jakobsen.

‘New Music Friday – Sweden’ also chose ‘In Brooklyn’ on the day of it’s release for there huge playlist. Thank you Sweden.
