So, its been a slow start to 2014 but things are picking up nicely. We have a great looking new website - www.jakemorrell.co.uk. We have signed a publishing deal for 3 singles with Frontier and Jigsaw music ( Alison Krauss, Marcus Bonfanti ) . We have lots of new material showing itself at rehearsals and gigs… and if you see the image we have some really exciting dates coming up for this summer and loads more on their way -

So we have just been down to Somerset to shoot two video’s for LOST AND FOUND SESSIONS. We had an absolute blast with the guys early on sat morning, they were even kind enough to get us a few gigs over the weekend to make it a fantastic all round trip.
Video’s coming soon!!

Oh Fringe you mad crazy festival -
All be it a bit late, I thought i would do a quick blog post about our little adventure up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival from 17th - 26th Aug..
After an 8 hour drive we finally pulled up at Morton Hall our fringe lodging of grass and porta-loos. Setting up camp, putting dinner on and discussing how this year was different and not going to be as gruelling as last year because we had a venue!!
Oh how wrong we were ..
We spend the next nine days slogging on the streets, playing at any opportunity we could get our hands on, flyering anyone that looked even mildly interested in what we were doing and desperately trying to gain a reputation on the Royal Mile. Along side our fantastic team ( Gracey Bennet, Abbie Rust, Dave Butterworth, Jo Jenkins, Hannah Taylor and Helen and Dave Morrell ) we managed to pull in a crowd of 15+ every night in our venue ( Fringe average is 7 people ) and on the streets the crowds were even bigger. Playing in sun, rain, snow we found ourselves gaining more and more presence on the mile as each day passed. On our final night we pulled in well over 30 people to our final show. The week went by in a blur, its hard to say how many street shows and gigs we actually did in our 9 days but it was around 26 shows, selling 256 CD’s and 5 T shirts.
During our time up in Edinburgh we also managed to crack 1000 like on our facebook, So we would just like to say thank-you to everyone who supported us, stood in the rain to watch us, laughed when we failed and generally made our time in the North so enjoyable.
I would also like to thank my team of legends who, without your help we wouldn’t of had nearly the success we did.. So Thank-you all.
Until next year …
