JAKE MORRELL has just been voted ‘Best UK Male Artist’ by the UK Country Spotlight Awards. Hearing Jake’s new single, ‘THIS HOUSE’, provides a timely indication of why. It is a beautifully written, produced and sung tribute to growing up in his own family home, but also an appreciation of the sanctuary that one’s home can be – and possibly has been for many over the past year in lockdown.
As Jake reflects: ‘I had just got the news that my parents after nearly 30 years were selling our family home and moving on to a new adventure. So I immediately called up my friend and co-writer Sue McMillan and said, I’ve just got this news and I need to write a song about it’. So we did.
