Jake Morley - Many Fish To Fry
If you are head over heels in love with the easy going rhythms of Newton Faulkner or the unfathomably popular Ed Sheeran then maybe you’ll find much to like from the mellow niceness of Jake Morley. For everyone else this collection of ditties will provide no more than easily forgotten background music to a hot summer day’s BBQ.
Only the wonderfully orchestrated ‘Feet Don’t Fail Me Now’ and Morley’s quirky, lap tapping guitar style provide anything resembling excitement. Everything else just meanders along with nary a pulse-racing moment. It is hard to be too unkind to an album that is as polished as Many Fish To Fry but the inoffensive nature of the material means there are few hooks or bait to tempt you back for more.
