Interview with Jess Morgan; English folk and trance singer ahead of the Gig at Leamington LAMP this coming Thursday.
Jess Morgan is an English folk and trance singer based in Norwich, England. Jess self-released her debut album, ‘All Swell’, to notable acclaim in 2010. Funded by Fans and the centrepiece of a Pledge Music Campaign, Jess released her second album ‘Aye Me’ in the Spring of 2012. ‘Aye Me’ was quickly championed by BBC Radio 2’s Steve Lamacq, Folk Radio UK and BBC Wales’s Frank Hennessey. The album’s launch was celebrated with a sold out show in Jess’s home-town of Norwich and was backed up by a UK headline tour and a support tour with Paper Aeroplanes.
In March 2013 Jess will release her ‘Richer Thinner Smarter’ EP which is a collection of songs recorded live in a one-mic-one-take fashion at locations close to her home in east Norfolk. The EP will showcase 4 new tracks and 3 new and raw recordings of favourite tracks from ‘Aye Me.’
Jess has earned her place supporting the likes of First Aid Kit, The Urban Folk Quartet, Teddy Thompson, Chris Wood, Lau and Megson and well as playing at clubs and venues up and down the UK. Extensive touring outside the UK has seen Jess gain an international fanbase playing regular shows in Norway, Germany and Holland.
In 2013 Jess will be touring throughout the Uk, Italy, Germany and Norway. https://myspace.com/jessmorganacoustic
