'Breathe'

There's something simple yet striking about the artistry of Morgan Harper-Jones.

Still only 21 years old, her music is stark, almost minimalist at times, but this seems to allow the meaning, the nuance of each word take root in a new way.

The Rochdale songwriter is worth lining up alongside Cat Power, or even those early Laura Marling recordings, such is her resolute impact.

New single 'Breathe' continues her ascent, and it stems from one too many of those all-night conversations.

Backed by little more than gently plucked guitar and opaque, shadowy backing vocals, it's a harmonious but emphatically moving piece.

A song hewn from her own life, Morgan Harper-Jones' brings it to life in emphatic fashion. She comments...

“It’s about letting go and accepting things for what they are or aren’t and how they can be.”

Tune in now.
