Whitby - Jess Morgan
It's always exciting to listen to new music from our next LCM featured artist and firm favourite Norwich based Jess Morgan. Her latest single and our LCM #'SongOfTheDay is the personal and reflective 'Whitby'. The video features Jess' recent support performance for A-ha! at the O2 in Greenwich.
Jess Morgan is a songwriter’s songwriter. Her latest album is a tumbler of unfancied, gutsy song. Her melodies will ring in your ears for days and her stories will play on your heart long after that. The album comes out with Drabant Music and Jess is currently the Norwegian label’s only British artist. April 2017 saw the release of album Edison Gloriette, a record about love and lonliness – made for anyone who’s ever been a bit of a nighthawk at any one time or another. BBC Wales linchpin Adam Walton said on first play – “it’s a blinder.” Glasgow’s The Skinny called her, “a songwriter who lives her craft truer than many of her contemporaries.”
Jess will release new material in 2018 and will support A-ha! on their MTV Unplugged tour including dates at Spektrum in Oslo and the O2 Arena in London – the biggest shows to date for this meticulously hands-on artist artist, who makes her own playable 7″ records at home in her kitchen. The 405 called her “a true DIY artist in her element. Seriously, she does it all.”
