‘Using a guitar and laptop to create her bewitching music, Devon singer Alice has the one-person-band feel of Jack Garret on stage.’ WIRED, THE DAILY STAR. (Ones to Watch in 2017)
‘It’s a summer-ready pop song with hand-claps and a whispery melody you won’t be able to shake.’ THE FADER
‘There’s no doubt much more to be revealed by this delightful young songwriter and that’s good to know, if like us, you’re keen on discovering more of her world.’ NOTION
‘You’re bound to be inundated with “next big thing” type acts gracing your screens, Alice Jemima will probably be part of that list but fortunately, she’s got the talent and a growing list of credentials worthy of being a “one to watch.’ THE 405
‘An adorable document from a promising newcomer.’ CLASH
Already being tipped as one to watch out for this year and with Amazing Radio voting her in at No.9 for this year alongside Shura, Spring Kings & Glass Animals, Alice Jemima is set to release her sugar-sweet version of Blackstreets classic ‘No Diggity’ via Sunday Best Recordings . The single, which appears on her debut self-titled album (both the new single and album will be released March 3rd 2017) was her initial breakthrough single which went viral and now stands at over 3 million plays.
In Jemima’s own words, ‘I first chose to cover ‘No Diggity’ after hearing Chet Fakers striped-back version of it – but I wasn’t planning to do anything with it, I was just playing around in my studio. But then I played it to my family and friends and they loved it, so I put it up on my Soundclound. I definitely didn’t expect it to get the amount of plays that it did in such a short amount of time, I’m still completely bowled over by that, and this is why it’ll be on my album. ‘
Jemima’s debut ‘Liquorice’ EP was released back in June 2016 to a receptive audience, with the lead track ‘Liquorice’ being selected by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens as his Tip Of The Week and John Kennedy’s X-Posure Big One on Radio-X and to date has reached over 600,000 Spotify streams. Her subsequent single release ‘Dodged a Bullet’ was play-listed at Radio 1 and currently stands at over 1.5 million Spotify streams. Her forthcoming debut album has been produced by Roy Kerr (London Grammar, Bloc Party, Foxes) and will be released via Sunday Best Recordings on March 3rd 2017.
