JESS MORGAN – BIOG

“something truly special.” – Folk Radio UK   //  “absolutely addictive” – The National Student

“Unique vocals, keen observational skills, and top-notch songwriting. ****” – Maverick

“Some of the most sublime tunes you are likely to hear in a long time. ****” – R2

Jess Morgan is a songwriter’s songwriter. A cerebral storyteller – she takes her cue from roots music and contemporary and upfront British voices like Billy Bragg and Jarvis Cocker. Her latest album is a tumbler of unfancied gutsy song, with heart, passion and great melodies. The album comes out with Drabant Music and Jess is currently the Norwegian label’s only British artist.

In April 2017 Jess and her label released the album on Oxblood coloured vinyl. BBC Wales linchpin Adam Walton said on first play – “it’s a blinder.”

As well as crafting songs, Jess has also made a name for herself for her hands-on approach to producing music – gaining momentum through limited edition releases, short runs and most recently her own DIY 7″ vinyl records. In a recent article The 405 called her “a true DIY artist in her element. Seriously, she does it all.” [Read more about the making process on Jess’ website.] New album ‘Edison Gloriette’ was follows on from 2015 Jess release ‘The Bournemouth EP’ which sold out its limited edition run in less than 24 hours.

The past 5 years have seen Jess cement her place in the burgeoning singer-songwriter scene throughout the UK and Europe. Her music has attracted the ears of BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, BBC Scotland, BBC Wales and BBC Northern Ireland; Uncut, The Telegraph and The Guardian. This summer Jess will perform at a raft of UK festivals and will tour in Europe and Canada.
