Gem Andrews & Lianne Hall | Konzert

gem clour

Gem Andrews is a singer-songwriter born in Liverpool and raised on Country.
Gem writes alt-country music with an honesty and rawness that takes the listener by surprise and cuts to the quick.
New record Vancouver is a dark and melodious meditation on the forces pushing us from home and pulling us back.

Vancouver’s poignant lyrics are wrapped in delicate harmonies and uplifted by a skillful and intuitive eight-piece band. The album is deeply rooted in alt-country, with Gem’s fiercely independent voice carrying inflections of Patsy Cline, Lucinda Williams and Kate & Anna McGarrigle.
Vancouver will be distributed in January 2015 on Martin Stephenson’s label, Barbaraville Records.

Since then she’s been performing and recording with a number of bands, including Witchknot, Pico and d_rradio, and she’s also worked behind the scenes turning West Hill Hall in Brighton into an underground music venue.

She is currently working on Haunted House, an electronic pop band that started life as a collaboration with Paul Hartnoll of Orbital. The album ‘Brave the Woods’ was released in November 2014 on Woodland Recordings.
