Spotlight on Jess Morgan

Jess Morgan is a singer songwriter from Norwich who just recently released her fourth album Edison Gloriette. The album was recorded in Bergen, Norway – Jess wanting to record slowly and meaningfully following a mad 5 years of touring and rapid releases, while teaming up again with the collaborators from her 2010 debut producer HP Gundersen and producer and studio engineer Daniel Birkeland.

I was lucky enough to see Jess Morgan play live just last week when she made an appearance at the Americana Fest UK event. The set was a very intimate one, although the small venue was jam packed. We were treated to five songs from the album and it’s clear that Jess Morgan has a unique talent, where she crafts stories into lovely melodies, with a voice to match.

I have featured two of the songs from the set in video form – ‘Don’t Meet Your Heroes’ and ‘In Brooklyn’, while the set was completed by ‘In Your Life’, ‘A Hundred Years Old’ and ‘Hymn in the Morning’.
