NEW ALBUM LAUNCH
July 9th 2022 :: Edinburgh Assembly Roxy
New single ‘Calling’ out now
Debut EP Bright Shadows
An inventive and enticing debut ep from a new (to me, at least) singer and songwriter who, on the strength of this release, holds the promise of a lot more to come. Thewes has a beguiling charm that draws you in to her self-penned material; add to that intriguing lyrics, melodies that creep up and catch you unawares and some subtle arrangements and you have songs that hold the interest through repeated listenings.This is a talent that sits in that strand slightly apart from the folk mainstream, recognising the tradition but adding her own distinctive individual quality. Expect to hear more of her as her reputation grows.Jim Welsh – East Coast FM
Jemima signed with Last Night from Glasgow in 2021 and her latest album, Calling, will be launched July 9th 2022 at the Edinburgh Assembly Roxy.
Jemima has such a beautiful voice, with a great, original style. Her combination of darkness and irony, melancholy and delight is fantastic. It’s a pleasure to discover a new, unique talent like Jemima Thewes.Rosanne Cash
The fantastic haunting voice of Jemima Thewes tells fabulous and unique tales of longing, loss, love, life, death and everything in between. Indisputably original in its format and its feel, Jemima’s sweet melodies and her evocative, poetic lyrics paint an enchanting fairytale whilst at the same time calling upon the listener to look deep inside their own soul in a very real way. Don’t miss an opportunity to join this exquisite and cathartic journey.Saska Haramina
