JAKE MORLEY Announce New Single + UK Tour

March 4, 2015




New single impact date 23rd March 2015

  “Jake Morley and his impressive band more than have what it takes… an ambitious pop sound that is every bit as bright and sparkly as the main player himself” 4 stars – The Independent

“Great real life lyrics and superb virtuoso playing. That’s extraordinary!” – Tom Robinson, 6Music


Having spent the last two years on tour, expanding his already substantial fan-base and writing new material, singer-songwriter Jake Morley has finally emerged to unveil his latest single ‘Ghostess’.

As the lead-track from his forthcoming studio album, ‘Ghostess’ takes on an autobiographical approach from the young singer, turning to songwriting to process the raw aftermath of a broken relationship.

Morley seems to have a natural talent for blending Ben Howard –esque virtuoso acoustic picking and a line in sway-along balladry with Bear’s Den’s rich instrumental component. He conveys his heartfelt message of love and loss whilst fully retaining his artistic integrity, dignity and prowess.

Talking about the new single, the artist said “I would sometimes scan the audience for her. I knew she wouldn’t be there, but it helped me to imagine she was. It’s a very important song for me, a little bit magical even.  Every songwriter can point to a few songs that are extra special to them.  Often they don’t even feel like they wrote them. ‘ Ghostess’ is definitely one of those for me.”

 By teaming up with producer Calum MacColl, Morley has given an incredibly relatable tone to his latest release and told it through a very engaging and empathic style of writing. And don’t be fooled, as mild and dreamy as the song might sound at first, this is a piece of music that cuts deep. ‘Ghostess’ will be available from the 23rd March via Sandwich Emporium Records.
