JAKE MORRELL: With the nation’s ever-increasing embracing of music with a country vibe, there’s surely no better sound for summer radio than Jake Morrell’s joyous ‘Freewheeling’ . It’s already been picked up on Spotify’s ‘Nearly Nashville’ playlist.

After being discovered by Dermot O’Leary, Jake has been winning some influential supporters, including the likes of Emily Eavis, Bob Harris and Baylen Leonard. Jake’s warm harmony-drenched songs have been increasingly featured on Radio 2, playlists around the country and both Chris Country and Country Hits Radio. ‘Freewheeling’ is Jake’s latest single, and promises to further cement him as the nation’s favourite new UK male country artist.

Jake’s unique British take on the genre was exemplified by his first single, ‘Englishman (Trying to Write a Country Song)’. The country boy from Norfolk followed this up with another irresistible homespun single, the aptly named ‘Home’. Now, with ‘Freewheeling’, Jake again shows his way with a great tune and universally relatable lyrics.

Live, Jake and his band have been making quite an impact with shows around the country. 2019 has seen them on a nationwide tour, making a triumphant return to The 02’s Country2Country, back to Glastonbury, The Long Road, Nashville meets London and through the summer on countless festivals.

    Jake Morrell could have come straight out of Nashville, or even from the Californian sunshine, as his music suggests; but Jake is from Norfolk, England!

    Jake was ‘discovered’ by Dermot O’Leary, who featured him on his Radio 2 Show. One influential listener just so happened to be Glastonbury boss Emily Eavis, who immediately asked Jake to perform at the iconic festival.

    Jake recorded his debut single with London based producer Brett Shaw (Florence & The Machine, The Kooks & Dry the River). The song entitled “Wire and Thorns” reached No.2 in the iTunes country charts on the first day of release.

    This led to Jake being invited to perform at this year’s Country 2 Country festival, where he premiered his first major single, the appropriately titled ‘Englishman (Trying to Write a Country Song)’ – written and produced with the Grammy-winning writer/producer Kipper.

    The reaction to the song put Jake firmly in line as one of the country’s favourite new male artists in the genre.This lead to a string of both solo and band shows and festivals throughout the summer with Jake showing himself to be as irresistible as a solo act as he is with his band.

    The most exciting new development, however, is the new music that Jake has now recorded to launch the next phase of his career. This is led by the joyous forthcoming single, ‘Home’, written and produced with Rolling Stones keyboardist, Matt Clifford. With an evocative mix of Mumfords, Eagles and even Springsteen, ‘Home’ is the definitive track that firmly stamps Jake Morrell’s name across the UK country music scene.

    ‘Home’ will be released in November to tie in with his performance at the London Roots Festival on Nov 14, to be followed by an EP in the new year.
