JAKE MORLEY - FREDDIE LAID THE SMACKDOWN
PRESENTED BY JAMIE STEPHENS
PHOTOGRAPHED BY JEI TOOTLE
PRODUCED BY ZOE ALLWOOD
EDITED AND DIRECTED BY THE SPREZZ
Fresh from a triumphant sold-out album launch at London's Bush Hall, which The Independent gave 4 Stars, things are hotting up for the remarkable Jake Morley. Jake's phenomenal talent as a songwriter and performer have long been recognised by his early fans, but his audience is building quickly and now record labels and publishers are rightly putting Jake Morley firmly on their buzz radar. Dermot O'Leary's Radio 2 show is one of over 40 radio stations around the UK playing his tracks, live acoustic sessions and interviews, with headline shows booked in across the country over the course of 2011.
'Many Fish To Fry' is a big, open sounding album, jam-packed full of memorable songs ranging from the poignant 'This City' through to the feel-good 'I Saw Something', via a full choir on the upbeat debut single 'Feet Don't Fail Me Now'. An early EP, boosted by play on Radio 2 and 6 Music, grabbed the attention of renowned producers Phill Brown (Bob Marley / Talk Talk / Faithless) and Calum MacColl (Rokia Traore / Ronan Keating / Eddi Reader) who worked alongside Jake and the band to create an album that overflows with soulful instrumentation, warm vocals and strong lyrics.
Keep your eyes firmly on Mr Jake Morley - he's definitely one to watch.
