Have your say

Jazz is no stranger to the Cellars at Eastney.

She was here earlier this year (in February with Tom Bertram) and it’s no surprise that she is back; the girl never seems to stop touring.

This time, she’s conducting a mammoth 47-date UK tour off the back of her new EP Trying To Make Sense. However don’t let the name fool you.

Singer-songwriter Jazz Morley isn’t about brass instruments and big band arrangements. Tonight, the name of the game is unrequited love and failed relationships; all channelled through Jazz’s captivating voice and her keyboard.

Songs of love, loss and banks all make their way into Jazz’s short 40-minute set, with Neon Lights and the aforementioned ode to the Halifax (new single ‘Paper Walls’) proving to be highlights.

By the end of set-closer Disconnected, a song written for her brother in the military, there’s not a dry eye in the house.

Jazz possesses an infatuating, alluring voice that everyone needs to hear. Let’s hope her love life continues to stall if this is the result.
