Morgan Harper-Jones explores her emotions through confessional narratives and soaring dream-pop soundscapes on her debut album. Up To The Glass is a delicate exploration of finding yourself in your twenties against a backdrop of love, self-acceptance and loss. Documenting those universally defining moments of young adulthood through the prism of Morgan's own perspective, it explores deeply personal themes such as the passing of her grandparents, anxiously over-thinking every minor mistake, and yearning for a love that's destined to remain unrequited. Morgan eventually found solace to those struggles through both therapy and the cathartic release of expressing herself through song. She's an old soul with a significant appeal to her generation, her confessional dream-pop evoking influences which range from Maggie Rogers and Harry Styles, to Aldous Harding and St. Vincent, and back to Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon. Quickly becoming on of the UKs most exciting new voices, featuring four tracks in the global #1 Netflix film, Love At First Sight at the end of 2023 at reaching #8 in the global Shazam charts. "My favourite moments in other people's songs are where it feels like someone has just reached through the speaker or headphones and grabbed my hand and said: 'Hey don't worry, you're normal - I feel that too.' I hope above anything else that my songs can be that for someone else too."
