Jess Morgan will have you sloshed and woozy over a tumbler of songwriting so disarmingly uncomplicated, it could be the best kept secret on the folk scene right now. Morgan’s spirited, story-fuelled songs are anchored by warmth of delivery, with her easily distinguishable voice carried over the driving wheels of unfancified claw-hammer-finger-style guitar playing.

A prolific writer and posterchild for do-it-yourself music, Morgan was proud to unveil this years unexpected and unusual release – ‘The Bournemouth EP’ to vibrant acclaim and plays from national and international radio alike.

In 2014, the full-length album ‘Langa Langa’ burst with a wind-fall of new songs, attracting the ears of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show, Bob Harris Sunday, BBC 6 Music, Folk Radio UK, R2, Uncut and The Telegraph, helping to set this singer-songwriter apart as “something truly special.” (Folk Radio UK).The album was highlighted as one of The Telegraph’s Top 10 albums for Summer 2014 and stuck around to be included on several end of year retrospectives.
