Jake Morley is a singer-songwriter from London, England, known for distinctive lyrics and implausible guitar playing. His third studio album Some Things Are Like Other Things was released on 28th October 2022.

Along the way he's had a shred-off with Punch Brothers, swapped late night songs with Michael Kiwanuka, broken Jack Garratt's amp, and opened shows for They Might be Giants, Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner and Joe Bonamassa.
Jake Morley's ability to express the human experience with wit and intensity has earned him a reputation as one of the UK's most original songwriters and performers, renowned for creating exceptional live moments.
