For fifteen years Jim Moray has been at the forefront of a new movement in English traditional music. His debut album Sweet England changed the sound of Folk and won a brace of awards for its innovative melding of orchestration and electronica. Subsequent albums embraced everything from grime to Johnny Marr-esque guitar pop, but at their heart was Jim’s unmistakeable soulful and yearning voice; singing old songs in a new way.
His latest album Upcetera heralds a new chapter, receiving the best reviews of his career, including five stars from Mojo, fRoots and R2 magazines. He has also found the time to contribute three new songs to BBC Dr Who spin-off show Class, and launched his own Low Culture Podcast.
