Jacob with Martin guitar

I’m Jacob Morrison, musician, composer and instrumental teacher. I play a range of instruments including guitar, ukulele, banjo, and some basic piano & mandolin.

Music Projects

I’m co-founder, instrumentalist and co-songwriter of folk-pop band Faeland. Our debut album, All My Swim, received airplay from BBC 6 Music’s Gideon Coe and Tom Robinson, among others. It also made it on to the albums of the year lists for Folk Radio UK, Shire Folk and BBC Introducing’s Sam Bonham. You can listen to the album at faeland.co.uk.

Other acts I have played with include eclectic 9-piece acoustic innovators Pindrop, Bristol trip-hop giants Ilya, Western Swing band Shinbone (featuring Edward Jay, Fiona Barrow, Paul Bradley & Stuart Barker), and a host of the Southwest’s top singer-songwriters, including Emily Teague.

Contact me to enquire about session work or involving me in your project.


I offer guitar, ukulele and 5-string banjo lessons from my home in Stroud and online.

See my Teaching Page for more info.


I have composed and recorded for BBC Radio, short film and wildlife documentaries. Please get in touch to speak about your requirements.
