Biography

Job Title: Principal Lecturer

Courses Taught: BA (Hons) Music (Folk)

Specialisms: Songwriting, Composition and Arrangement

For 15 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 song 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 always Jim’s unmistakeable soulful and yearning voice; singing old songs in a new way.

His sixth album Upcetera heralds a new chapter for the producer and has received 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.
