At 22 years old with 6 years on the Manchester Music Scene, Jess Kemp released her debut single ‘Stars’ in March 2015. The demand for more brought the launch of her debut EP “Camden" which brings a much bolder and more exciting sound to tracks already featured by BBC Introducing & BBC Radio 2.

The success of the above release led to a 4 date European tour taking place in August 2016. Since then, Jess placed 3rd for ‘Best Unsigned Female’ in the Best Of British Unsigned Music Awards. In the same week, Jess and her band reached the final of Indie Week Europe and again placed 3rd from a selection of 70+ bands.

"‘The epitome of what an element of ‘pop’ and chart music should sound like. The catchy nature of her songwriting would surely capture the hearts and minds of a nation. Her voice is quite unique, switching between a bluesy and soulful snarl, to something more gracious and velvety"
- Sonic Bandwagon (Pure FM)

"A definite favourite of mine"
- Natalie Eve-Williams (BBC Introducing in Manchester)
"Her music just makes you happy"
- Michelle Hussey (BBC Introducing in Manchester)
