Discovery: Jake Morgan

Jake Morgan is a British bluegrass artist whose flair for storytelling caught my attention in his new track King Of The Wasteland.

By Graeme Smith

King Of The Wasteland is everything you expect from a classic blues song – steady bass, twanging guitar and raspy vocals. What I really loved about it was Jake’s flair for narrative. It’s a story of setting out with high hopes but ending up down and low. Jake paints a wonderful picture of the eponymous wasteland in which our hero ends up.

Jake first penned the track last year for Poetry Mondays, an online cause giving over a day of the week to celebrate poetry. Check out King Of The Wasteland below.
