Jemma – Soloist
I began performing live when I was just 15 years old, back in my home town where I would share my own original music and any other songs that were inspiring me at the time.
When I moved to Leeds to study music, I started to upload my songs and covers onto my YouTube channel. I wanted to be creative with the covers I uploaded so instead of picking my own songs, I asked my followers to suggest songs for me to perform. I soon realized that this is where my passion lies, as by doing this, I pushed my boundaries both as a songwriter and a performer. Now with almost 50,000 subscribers and over 4 million views, growing my channel has been one of the most exciting experiences I’ve had to date so far. I’ve built a good and strong relationship with my followers from all over the world and they have helped me to grow and flourish as an artist. Now, I integrate these covers into my set list with the aim of continuing to share these songs in a live environment and hoping that the public continue to like what I do.
The one thing I love at the moment is running. In the past I had always crossed off long distance running but I have recently completed the 2017 Leeds Half Marathon and I absolutely loved it. I have enjoyed the training so much because you find yourself exploring new areas of the city, just to get an extra mile or so in.
I also love taking a day out and driving to somewhere completely new, going on a long walk or just sitting on the beach with an ice cream. Some of my favourite memories have been doing just that and I am looking forward to the next adventure!
