Jem

Before she straddled the border between electronica and pop/rock with songs like "They," Jem Griffiths began the roundabout road to songstress stardom in Cardiff, Wales, where the singer was born and raised. She later attended Sussex University, balancing her course work with an emerging interest in music. Although still enrolled at Sussex, Griffiths became a talent scout for local DJs and helped promote the city's club events; she also helped launch the electronica imprint Marine Parade while rubbing shoulders with Lo Fidelity Allstars and breakbeat techno producer Adam Freeland. After dropping her last name and moving back home, Jem began building tracks on her own, as well as fine-tuning her voice.

Not content to stay in one place, Jem relocated to London with demos in hand. There, she collaborated with producer Guy Sigsworth (picking up a writing credit for the Madonna track "Nothing Fails" in the process) before landing in America and hooking up with hip-hop producer Ge-Ology and programming whiz Yoad Nevo (Bond, Sophie Ellis-Bextor). Together, they tweaked Jem's music into an amalgam of soft electronica and soothing, Dido-like vocals. Such an appealing sound found an audience in early 2002, when radio DJ Nic Harcourt -- an employee at L.A.'s taste-making KCRW station and host of Morning Becomes Eclectic -- began spinning the breezy Jem track "Finally Woken." This exposure led to a deal with ATO Records, which issued Jem's introductory EP, It All Starts Here, in autumn of the following year. A full-length effort entitled Finally Woken appeared in March 2004, and the hauntingly appealing "They" (which featured a sample from the Swingle Singers' adaptation of a Johann Sebastian Bach composition) found success on both sides of the Atlantic, even peaking at number six in the U.K. Jem's music subsequently found its way onto a number of movies and TV shows, and she returned in 2008 with her second effort, Down to Earth. ~ Andrew Leahey & Johnny Loftus, Rovi

When I listen to Jem I feel she is trying to teach and inspire.
When I see her amazingly beautiful, haunting eyes, and hear the earnest almost pleading aspect of her lyrics, I truly feel that she is attempting with her utmost artistic efforts to do all in her power to raise the consciousnes s of her listener and bring us all into an ever-widenin g circle of empowerment. Jem is like a wise older sister; savvy, sophisticate d , sexy, and so precious. ..just like the Jem that she is.
Emerald?

Is she related to Jem and the Holograms?
Some people don't inow or appreciate all thus hamonizing

Dear Jem, whenever you straddle a border I can't help but watch. Sincerely, someone who reads the bios.
I'd love to see her and Lindsey Sterling get together on a project! Both are amazing artist and full of energy!! ;D
I love you Jem!!!! your music is truly fab!!!
Whenever I hear the name Jem, I think JEM CARSTAIRS!!! !
Ah, Jem, if only I was 20 years younger - oh chuck it - Marry me.
@Hunter B, Taric or Jem and the Holograms? Haha
I seriously love all her music. Why isnt she around anymore??!!
Love the lyrics and the sound. Sultry and conscious... . . . d i g g i n '

Jem is truly outrageous. She is truly, truly, truly... Outrageous.
jesus christ, this album was my childhood
@brookeadele I saw her live in 2004 at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland and she was really amazing. It was such a great show and made me and even bigger fan. She just has a very smooth voice.

she really is a different artist then most others. its funny to know how she changed from having a law degree to becoming a singer.
Man, You Better Say It, Who Are They, I love It!!!
My feelings are mutual from begining to end!
I wish more people knew of her amazing talent!
I'm so falling in love with JEM! Every song hits me on so many levels—lyric s and music. She is such a talent.
Truly truly truly outrageous! But the Misfits are better... >=) I all seriousness, this girl is awesome.
dimonds2000
Yes, Jem ROCKs!!!!!!! !

I like her, but she's auto tuned. She's a studio artist. I still like her, but I wouldn't see her live.
Been following her for almost 10 years and she's pretty damned amazing!
Totally agree. LOVE her style and sound. Like thinking she is my own little secret. lol
Love her! Kinda glad she's still under the radar but she, I think, does it on purpose. Kind of like what Amanda Palmer does: running it all herself, working her career on her own terms, & shying away from record companies where you might own the copyright to the music, but rights to the *actual* recordings do not belong to you.
She really needs a better PR dept. She should be WAY more famous than she is. She has something to say in her music and finds wonderful ways to express those thoughts.
This girl/woman has a nice voice and doesn’t look bad. Could I be wrong? I want to say either spiritual, or by purpose. She must be one of those upsides of life (things) when it comes to music. Could it be more?
love it...
randallmckay
but in a good way

finally went to sleep
She's just really thoughtful in her lyrics. They and Just a Ride (tribute to Bill Hicks) are especially great.
I like how her Finally Woken album says Stereo in the upper right hand corner... Does it come in Mono?

Double thumbs up on this Dido-like track (like better than Dido!) LOVE the lyrics....
just soooo cool, ya know?

I always seem to love European Musicians..
Her voice is amazing!
flabbishrott 6 9
very pretty voice:)
I adore Jem. I never heard her before I enrolled in Pandora. I find her music intriguing and always pay attention to her lyrics. I love how Pandora introduces me to singers I am unfamiliar with. She is now one of my new favorites!
Maybe I'm Amazed - absolutely beautiful, best Beatles cover I've ever heard!
