Exclusive Interview: Jake Morrell

Written by on May 16, 2021

Channel R Discover’s Tara spoke exclusively with the UK’s favorite country male artist Jake Morrell. Jake spoke about the inspiration behind writing his latest single “This House,” his experience playing Glastonbury, his roots from folk to country with an English spin and what’s coming up next (warning: it’s a “summer banger”!)

If nothing else has helped get us through the last few months, music has certainly played its part. So not surprisingly at least one artist has drawn inspiration – and created this irresistible song to highlight how music can reach and touch people – even, in this case, a faltering love interest.

Initially discovered by Dermot O’Leary, Norfolk born Jake Morrell proves yet again his way with an infectious melody. Jake has become the UK’s favorite UK Country male artist through a succession of ear-candy singles and joyous live shows.

We know that this pandemic has been a disaster for artists, but Jake is one who has spent his time productively, both by helping his community through social work, a family tradition, and helping to fund his ongoing recording career by working as a builder. This has enabled him to create new music, new videos and online content.

Jake is also now bringing together the cream of the UK’s independent Country artist community on a major project for the new year. Watch this space.


Listen to this and more up and coming artists on “Discover“, playing Sunday’s at 1.30pm PT/4.30pm ET on Channel RToday’s Hits & Your All-Time Favorites.
