“Lovely folky vibe”

‐ Adam Crowther, BBC Radio Bristol

Jake Morgan is a folk singer‐songwriter born Cardiff 1979, originally from Lichfield, England now living in Bristol. Weaving together threads of folk, country, bluegrass, jazz and blues, his husky voice and vintage writing style are evocative of a bygone musical time, with emotionally driven and widely relatable songs that draw influence from his life and travels. Think Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Cat Stevens and you're getting close.

Predominantly an acoustic solo performer, Jake has also collaborated with musicians in different cities. Meeting fellow Staffordshire folk singer‐songwriter Louise Petit in Lichfield the pair sang together at local gigs. Jake then formed an electric group called The Raven Band who played at Nozstock Festival and the Birmingham O2 Academy. After busking across Europe on a trip to visit his maternal grandfathers homeland Poland he moved to north London and played guitar in nostalgic jazz duo Radio Picture with Canadian singer Bahia Pierce at the speakeasy‐style Nightjar Bar in Shoreditch and Thames Traditional Boat Festival. Now living in Bristol Jake has performed with musicians from the cities folk and Americana scenes at The Gallimaufry, The Kingsdown Vaults and The Cloak and Dagger.

Jake has released three albums of original songs. His debut Raw Material, 2014 recorded at a friends house in Birmingham. The follow up Siso, 2018 recorded in the Netherlands and From The Ground Up, 2020, his first full band album recorded in Bristol. Jake released three singles from his home studio in 2021, Runaround, King of The Wasteland and Sweet Babe. His music has been played on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Bristol, BCfm Radio Bristol, Bath Radio, Black Country Radio and Sapphire FM, Australia.
