About Jessica

Jessica Lee Morgan is a whole-hearted singer songwriter who doesn’t beat around the bush. She’s been raised on rock and folk by legendary parents (Mary Hopkin and Tony Visconti) and writes songs that reflect her upbringing and jobs in the real world. As happy in a tiny club or a large theatre, she performs live with her acoustic guitar, percussion strapped to her army boots, and partner Christian Thomas on bass. 

Jessica’s released three albums and is finishing her fourth, all recorded wherever her studio happens to be - boat, campervan, cider farm, scenic viewpoint on the A470… with Christian at the controls. They have been released on their own label, Space Records.

Jessica often collaborates with her mother, Mary, running the label Mary Hopkin Music. They wrote and sung a duet together, 'Here it All Comes Again', on Jessica's first album, and Jessica sang backing vocals on Mary and Morgan's album 'You Look Familiar', among others. She has toured with Brian Willoughby and Cathryn Craig, completing the band for 'Very Hopkin: An Evening Without Mary Hopkin'. She also sang 'Those Were The Days' at 'Wales at No.1' at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff, sharing a stage with the likes of Shakin' Stevens, Richie Valence, James Dean Bradfield and Amy Wadge. Jessica also represented both parents at Ralph McTell's 75th birthday concert at The Royal Festival Hall in 2019. Both parents have a history of working with Ralph, from his fourth album to his most recent, on which Jessica also sang.

She plays 12-string, saxophone, percussion and vocals in the Bowie supergroup Holy Holy with her father Tony Visconti and Spiders from Mars drummer Woody Woodmansey. They've toured the UK, Canada, Europe and Japan. In the USA, as part of a 9-week tour, they played Carnegie Hall and Radio City along with such stars as Debbie Harry, Robyn Hitchcock, Perry Farrell, Cyndi Lauper and Ann Wilson. Very often Jessica shared the support slot with her singer/songwriter/composer brother, Morgan Visconti. She's also sung on his album, 'Ride'.

2019 saw a Holy Holy UK tour and also a support slot for the second time on tour with psych-rock legend Robyn Hitchcock, as well as several solo dates and support slots with Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers (with whom she guested on saxophone), T.Rextasy, The Blow Monkeys and Mark Morriss of The Bluetones. Jessica has also been taking the role of Sandy Denny with premiere tribute band Coda Led Zeppelin, duetting on the ‘Battle of Evermore’ and playing a support set. 

Jessica has sung ‘Those Were The Days’ to Baron Cobbald, founder of Knebworth Rock Festival, on his 80th birthday, and shared a stage as Polly Garter with Sir Ian McKellen for the Dylathon, directed by Michael Bogdanov. She also contributed two guest vocals on ‘Decades’, an album by David Palfreyman and Nicholas Pegg and featuring, among others, David Warner and Sarah Jane Morris.
