Jess Morgan is something of an underground folk sensation. She has just announced the release of her new EP, ‘Richer, Thinner, Smarter’ which is due on 4th March 2013.

The EP was recorded live through a single microphone in a series of one-take sessions close to her home city of Norwich.

Jess’s latest release was her fan-funded second album ‘Aye Me’ which was released last year to both critical and muso-acclaim. Her headline tour to support this release saw her visit most of the UK, including a sold out album launch show in Norwich.

Her distinctive style favors storytelling and showcases her as a bright new songwriter influenced by British folk music, as well as American country, folk and blues. Earning her stripes on the contemporary folk scene of todayby supporting the likes of Paper Aeroplanes, Teddy Thompson and First Aid Kit has ensured she is poised for great things in 2013, including an LP.

To celebrate the EP launch, Jess head out on UK tour from next month, including dates in Cambridge, Birmingham, London and Manchester.

Tickets are available now.

“Richer, Thinner, Smarter” is available from 4th March 2013.
