Jake Morrell could have come straight out of Nashville, or even from the Californian sunshine, as his music suggests; but Jake is from Norfolk, England! Jake was ‘discovered’ by Dermot O Leary, who featured him on his Radio 2 Show. One influential listener just so happened to be Glastonbury boss Emily Eavis, who immediately asked Jake to perform at the iconic festival.

 

"It’s great to see Jake Morrell flying the flag for British country music" - Dermot O’Leary, BBC Radio 2

 

Jake recorded his debut single with London based producer Brett Shaw (Florence & The Machine, The Kooks & Dry the River). The song entitled "Wire and Thorns" reached No.2 in the iTunes country charts on the first day of release. This led to Jake being invited to perform at this year’s Country 2 Country festival, London’s Country Music Week and being invited out to Nashville.

 

Now working with several top industry writers including the Grammy-winning writer/producer Kipper (Sting, Gary Numan), Jake’s songs and sound are attracting attention by all who listen.

 

With a gig history that reads like a road atlas, Jake and the band have truly honed their craft and always leave you feeling joyous and wanting more!

Formed in late 2013, Falling From Trees began life as an acoustic three-piece comprising brothers Adam White and Leo White on guitars and backing vocals and sister, Rebecca White, on lead vocal duty.

 

As voracious music lovers, it was only a matter of time before the siblings came together to formalise their musical endeavours, combining folk and blues influences with soulful, jazz-tinged vocals.

 

Under this formation, Falling From Trees went on to release two EPs, On and On (2015) and Words (2016), both of which received considerable airplay and critical acclaim,

Gigging relentlessly and honing their craft,  becoming favoured regulars in the Norwich music scene. This lead to some incredible opportunities, including a coveted support slot for Mark Flanagan of Jools Holland fame at the Southwold Arts Festival and a set for BBC Voices

2018 also saw the release of the bands new EP, Sleepless Nights.

Helen Bluebelle has been influenced by the likes of Ludovico Einaudi, Billy Lockett and Lauren Aquilina. Helen incorporates contemporary minimalism with pop-ballad sensibilities.

Helen spent their childhood listening to soft rock christian artists, like Hillsong Church and Matt Redman, which in their opinion always focuses on the lyrics in songs more than anything else. This has formed an important part for them when writing and creating a song.

Helen enjoys spending time alone outside, taking inspiration from the world around them to write their lyrics.

Helen took to the stage of Latitude for the first time in 2016, returning again last year to experience more of the ‘festival atmosphere’ . They regularly perform across East Anglia and have played quirky stages including a platform at the Mid Norfolk Railway as part of Dereham festival. They have also performed in various venues around Norwich, making regular appearances at The Birdcage and Platform Twelve. Helen also attends open mics across the city and runs a monthly one at The Birdcage.

​Sam Coe & The Long Shadows are a UK Country/Americana band from Norwich, Norfolk. 

 

Their debut Album "Full Moon" was released in March 2018 to critical acclaim, following their first UK tour in 2017 and support slot with The Shires. We were also blessed to play C2C, Country 2 Country Festival in 2017 (and 2016!)

 

Sam Coe & The Long Shadows are... 

Sam (Lead Vocals and Rhythm Guitar) 

Steve (Dobro and Lap Steel)

Giff (Bass Guitar) 

Mark (Lead Guitar) 

Wayne (Drums) 

The band were formed in 2015, when Sam placed an ad for local musicians interested in joining a modern country band. Coincidentally, the first response came from childhood friend and drummer Wayne Moore. 

 

Sam reluctantly responded, expecting Wayne to bow out when he realised it was her. However, with the addition of Steve Clark (Dobro and Lap Steel), Mark Howes (Lead Guitar) and later on Giff Mulley (Bass) it became apparent that The Long Shadows knew just how to handle Sam and her songs. The boys in the band helped to create a sound that blends modern country with just the right amount of pop, with a nod to the traditional sounds we all love.
