Jess Morgan is a songwriter’s songwriter. October 2016 will see the release of a confident new record from this young British voice. Expect a tumbler of unfancified roots music – with heart, with passion, with gusto. In October 2016 Jess takes the songs from ‘Edison Gloriette’ on the road – and will be backed up by The Light Band’ helping to bring the songs and the stories behind them to life.
Over the past few years Jess has been making a noise in the UK and further afield with a string of albums comprised of acutely observed, beautifully delivered country-folk ballads. The songs are intimate, but not in that earnest, quiet way. There’s fire in Jess’ voice, the way it soars between notes like a bird in flight. It’s intimate, but it’s end of the night, lock-in at the bar, let’s get the nice whiskey out, intimate and has over recent years attracted the ears of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show, Bob Harris Sunday, BBC 6 Music, Folk Radio UK, R2, Uncut, The Guardian and The Telegraph.
Here at Elmslie we are delighted that Jess will be cementing our reputation for bringing you great original music.
Doors will open at 7.30pm for the performance to start at 8.00pm.
