QuoteJemma Griffiths was born in Penarth, Wales. During her early school years she explored her musical interests with the family piano, penning her first song at the age of thirteen. In 1993, Jem moved to Brighton to study Law at the University of Sussex. Both during her studies and after graduating in 1996, Jem spent time as a club and festival promoter and also began working as a DJ in Brighton's lively club scene.In November 1999 she returned to Wales, where she assembled a mobile recording studio and focused on developing her own individual songwriting and music production skills, completing a collection of four demos that acted as the basis of her break into the music industry. In 2000, Jem moved to London where she met Sugababes manager Sarah Stennett, who introduced her to other writers and producers. In March 2002, during a trip to Los Angeles to visit friends, Jem stopped by independent radio station KCRW to leave a demo of her song "Finally Woken" in Nic Harcourt's mailbox. The track quickly became one of the most listener-requested songs at the station.One of those listening was Bruce Flohr, a top-level A&R rep for RCA Records and newly established ATO Records. She was subsequently signed to the label. On 13 October 2003, in preparation for the release of the full-length album, ATO released an EP entitled 'It All Starts Here...', consisting of five adapted demos that Jem had initially recorded. Her debut album 'Finally Woken' was released in the United States on 24 March 2004. "They" became the UK lead single, released on 13 March 2005. Followed by "Just a Ride" in June and finally "Wish I" in September, which at that time was being used as the theme tune to popular UK reality television programme Celebrity Love Island.

QuoteJohnny Boy were an indie-pop band from Liverpool, which consisted of two members; Lolly Hayes and Davo (aka Andrew Davitt, a keyboard tech for the Manic Street Preachers). Both of them, when asked about their roles in the duo, commonly specified them by giving the generic answer of "Vocals, loops and guitars."You Are The Generation That Bought More Shoes And You Get What You Deserve was produced by James Dean Bradfield of the Manic Street Preachers and achieved critical acclaim. It reached #50 in the UK Singles Chart in August 2004. It also appeared on the soundtrack of Adam Curtis' 2021 series for the BBC, Can't Get You Out of My Head.
QuoteSparkwood Bandits, the alt-country duo of Anna Ehl and Josh Loar, has just released their debut album Two-Step Tempest, via indie label Electric Lights Music.Sparkwood Bandits are telling stories of the audacious and the forlorn, the joyful and the fallen, to a rollicking music heavy on backbeat and soul. With a wide musical palette drawing on American roots in country, blues, rock, and folk, the Bandits' debut record is an exhibition of the band's wry, world-weary narratives. Formed in 2011, Sparkwood Bandits are based out of Michigan's untamed Upper Peninsula, where they recorded Two-Step Tempest in an attic studio on an island in Lake Superior. They are a duo in studio, with a flexible lineup when they perform live.
