K A Morton and the Wellwishers


Few residents in the far flung communities in Fife, Scotland, serviced by a mobile library will know that, in his spare time, the mild mannered driver is a talented musician and song-writer. Kenneth A Morton, first played guitar in ‘alternative’ bands during a rebellious youth, his knowledge and love of music refined during a spell at art college in Dundee, Scotland. While there, as member of the band Laughing Academy, ‘K A’ supported groups such as The Cure and Big Country. Read more on Last.fm
Few residents in the far flung communities in Fife, Scotland, serviced by a mobile library will know that, in his spare time, the mild mannered driver is a talented musician and song-writer. Kenneth A Morton, first played guitar in ‘alternative’ bands during a rebellious youth, his knowledge and love of music refined during a spell at art college in Dundee, Scotland. While there, as member of the band Laughing Academy, ‘K A’ supported groups such as The Cure and Big Country. Since those youthful days, all the influences to which he acknowledges a debt – Americana, Indie, Alternative Rock and more – have been distilled into his own unique style.

But the visual training received at art college is crucial in helping create new song narratives. “I see songs like short films,” he says, “pictures, rather than stories. They’re like the landscapes I used to paint at college.” The ‘Wellwishers’, referred to in the album title aren’t a conventional band, rather a fluid line-up of talented local musicians; they have appeared with K A at many musical events, most recently at the sold-out Wickerman Festival in southern Scotland. Kenneth isn’t shy of crossing musical boundaries and recently performed solo at a poetry-and-music performance session, called Platform, at the Off the Rails Arthouse, ‘K A Morton and the Wellwishers’ was produced and engineered by close friend, John Cura, who also plays on the album along with K A’s son Liam. It comprises 12 tracks: different paces, different styles, each with its own individual musical character and thoughtful lyrics.

Ever a shapeshifter and mood-changer, K A Morton manages to achieve a remarkable variety of tone and imagery throughout. From the dreamy, current, radio single ‘You and I’ to the urgency of ‘Civil War’ ; from the elegiac, ‘All the Yellow Fishes’ to the mordant humour of ‘We’ll be Dead’ played by Cocteau Twin, Simon Raymonde, on a recent Amazing Radio Show. One thing this album is not is predictable. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
