Tonight I was checking my email using comcast's webmail and they had a link to a new album from someone I haven't ever heard of, Jem


http://www.jem-music.net/flash/jem.htm

Wow, I'm completely impressed.  I can't really describe her sound and I'm nowhere near as talented as rmorton or trigger at eloquently describing music so I guess you'll just have to check it out for yourself.  

A little more about her from http://www.jeffk.net/index2.html

Quote
Billed as a 'Welsh songstress' Jem Griffiths released a 5 song EP last year and garnered critical acclaim. Born in Wales, Jem started writing songs at age 11 and got her first mini studio at 13. While in school, Jem pursued her musical interests by working on production at UK festivals and promoting Skint Records acts such as Fatboy Slim and Lo-Fi Allstars. She then hooked up with DJ Adam Freeland and helped set up and manage the specialist underground breakbeat imprint, Marine Parade. On top of this, Jem started DJ'ing and promoting DJ nights in Brighton and London. After a series of twists and turns, Jem knew it was time to exit the behind-the-scenes side of the industry and follow her dreams of becoming a singer. Her successes during the last two years have shown that she's made the right decision. Jem also co-wrote the track "Nothing Fails" with Guy Sigsworth and Madonna, which Madonna recorded for her American Life album. This new album has become the soundtrack for the FOX network. The album's lead single, "They," is one of several cuts used in the new Friday night series, Wonderfalls, while another song, "Just a Ride," will be featured both on The O.C. and the show's upcoming soundtrack.



I can say that I will without a doubt purchase her CD tomorrow.  Heck, I
would go get it tonight if somewhere was open. smile

On the season finale of The O.C. they played a song by Jem "Maybe I'm Amazed" (which hasn't been officially been released anywhere yet) and that prompted me to get more of her stuff. I dig her sound.

Her highlights, imo, include "Wish I" and "Flying High."

Not bad at all. If  you like her, you'd probably like Catie Curtis

Thanks!  I will check her out.  I ordered Jem's CD from her website for $10 tonight (Media Play doesn't have it).

I also heard her on the OC (can't wait till it starts back in Nov.)  I just never thought about checking her out.  

Glad I did.

I've had Finally Woken for a while now, good CD.

I've also been enjoying Mary Prankster lately.  Good Punk-ish music, but defintely not for the kids. smile

I heard They on the radio last week, and it's definitely an ear-catching song. Not a lot out there like it. She's 2 for 2 in songs that I like, which means I may have to track down some more songs.

Here in Portland they're playing what i hope will be her new single, "24".

I think it's the best song on the album, which is saying quite a bit.
