Morcheeba (FONTÁNA STAGE)11.09.
The beginnings of Morcheeba go back to the mid-1990s when brothers Paul and Ross Godfrey ran into singer Skye Edwards at a party in Greenwich. At the time, Edwards was part of a funk band and played guitar. They soon began recording together, forming Morcheeba. London-born Edwards was part of the group’s four most successful albums including Who Can You Trust? and Big Calm. The next release in line, Fragments of Freedom, includes what is probably the group’s most well-known song, Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day. After the departure of Edwards, Daisy Martey came in to perform vocals on the album The Antidote, but she left the group in January 2006, and the follow-up Dive Deep features a number of guest vocalists. Meanwhile, Skye Edwards began her successful solo career in 2006 with the album Mind How You Go. She returned to Morcheeba in the spring of 2010 on the group’s album Blood Like Lemonade. Their latest release, Blackest Blue, was released in May 2021 and features collaborations with Duke Garwood and Brad Barr. The album was preceded by the singles Sounds of Blue, Oh Oh Yeah, and The Moon.
