Jake Morley Short Info

“Absolutely loving Jake Morley’s ‘Falter’ – beautiful!” Mazin Tappuni, Communion Presents, XFM
“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
“A sound that can’t be ignored. Morley can do no wrong, and a wealth of fans can’t get enough.” 9/10 - Virgin.com
“Great real life lyrics and superb virtuoso playing. That’s extraordinary!” - BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson

Following the release of his 2012 debut album, London-based artist Jake Morley spent two years gigging relentlessly up, down and across the UK, establishing a strong grass roots following at over 250 gigs. Morley's personal songs, captivating live presence and ground-breaking guitar style brought festival slots at The Isle of Wight, Latitude, Secret Garden Party, sell out headliners at London's Bush Hall and HMV’s Next Big Thing Festival, plus enthusiastic support from key Radio 2 and 6Music shows and glowing press reviews.

This wealth of live experience fed into an intense soul-searching writing period at the start of 2014. He finally returned to the studio this summer, unveiling a startling new weight and depth to his music. Bolder and more mature themes like adulthood and intense self-reflection shine through the new songs. Helping carve out this detailed new approach on first single Falter is award-winning producer Calum MacColl.

Falter is a track that doesn’t depend on gimmicks, kitsch or any shock factor as it does on its near-perfect construction of a great song. The production is a mixture of Gotye’s creativity and Ed Sheeran’s mass-appeal. Quirky nods to acoustic pop and an unconventional guitar technique show off his imaginative song-writing and arrangement abilities.

"It's the sound," Morley says, "of everything crashing to a halt." Falter proves that his career threatens to do the reverse, and is an act worth watching. The single will be available for sale and download on 27th October 2014.
