Jonny Morgan is an Alternative Indie Americana Folk singer/songwriter who clearly struggles having to describe what specific genre he falls into. Jonny aspires to make music that is vulnerable, incorporating the real, raw emotions of everyday life into his gritty acoustic singer/songwriter style. Unsigned and fearlessly independent, Jonny endeavours to take his sound back to basics, reflecting on the reason he felt the pull to create music in the first place. His music combines his talent for vocalising the weight of relationships and life experiences with poetic lyrics and warm, layered, ambient sounds.
Jonny Morgan made his debut at Glastonbury in 2019 and alongside being a Sofar Sounds alumni and favourite, he has supported Turin brakes, Wildwood Kin and Rob Vincent.
Having grown up regularly visiting the US, Jonny is infatuated with the sounds of Americana, blues and grassroots music, developing an unsubtle love for the genre. His single ‘Hurt Me’ is almost a homecoming for the soul of Jonny’s music. After a surprise exchange of direct messages on Instagram, Jonny found himself flying out to the US in December 2019 to record his new single alongside Americana artist Joel Levi at his studio in Nashville, Tennessee. Whilst still honouring his roots and performing stripped back shows in New England on the way, Jonny spent time crafting and investing in new relationships in the mecca of Folk and Americana. In 2020, Jonny is turning his attention to releasing as much authentic music as possible.
