Play It Again Sam
Hailing from Rochdale, Morgan Harper-Jones is a force of nature, her soul-baring songwriting echoing the intimate honesty of Cat Power, Joni Mitchell and Bon Iver.
Her songs are filled with starkly honest lyrics that tap into obsession, infatuation, and the unhealthy behaviours that come with the territory. “I don’t will myself to cry when I write, but with particular lines I get emotional, and I keep them – and those are always the lines that get other people,” she shares. “It’s magic, and so connecting. It’s like someone’s sat next to you saying it’s ok to feel that way as a human.”
