Jazz Morley Tickets
Born in 1989 in Bournemouth, Jazz Morley is a singer with a soulful voice that has impressed many music critics in the UK. Much of her music is designed to highlight her vocal talents and she is often attracted to electronica as a means of backing her voice, in what are occasionally minimalist arrangements. Morley’s songs have featured on the Best of MySpace and she was shortlisted for the finals of the Shure Songwriting Award in 2010, a competition that was judged by Paloma Faith. Her initial success has led to her penning some songs for several established artists. The singer has also taken to the studio as well as conducting live performances, both for the BBC's new talent platform, Introducing.
Jazz Morley’s career milestones
Morley's first public performance was in her infant school's nativity play and she has remained the centre of attention ever since. She began touring at a young age and was frequently seen supporting artists, including Kwabs or Gabrielle Aplin, at venues in and around Dorset and the wider South West region of England. For a while, Morley was a regular on the UK's summer festival scene, playing at the likes of the Isle of Wight festival and the Great Escape.
In February 2011, the young songwriter took part in a BBC master class session that took place at Abbey Road Studios in London, helping to raise her profile. The BBC also invited the singer to contribute to a documentary, entitled Our War, which was put online to mark the tenth anniversary of the conflict in Afghanistan.
In late 2015, Morley opted for some time away from performing in order to develop her burgeoning electronic sound. Around this time, she began a musical relationship with artist and producer, Draper, and together they started to put together a newer, more cutting-edge sound. The following year, this collaboration led to the release of “Bad Love” and “Take Me Down”, two critically acclaimed singles. “Ruin Me” followed in 2017, and was put out at the same time as a short run of dates in the capital, as well as Morley's hometown of Bournemouth.
Jazz Morley’s critical praise
As an up-and-coming artist, Morley's vocal talents have won many plaudits. Time Out magazine referred to her as a “haunting and soulful” singer-songwriter, for example. She has been compared to the much-loved singer Eva Cassidy before, thanks to her combination of vocal strength and fragility. Her “smooth-as-silk" voice has also come to the attention of writers at Elle magazine.
