My debut album will finally be finished and out this year! FINALLY :)



Born in Liverpool England, singer-songwriter Gem Andrews sings heart-achingly beautiful dark country ballads, filled with intoxicating romanticism and wrapped in haunting melodies.

Her own self-titled, self-released debut album is due in 2011 and is currently being recorded with local songwriter and performing artist Kathryn Williams in Newcastle, England. The debut collection features just her and her acoustic guitar as well as contributions from Kathryn Williams, Gabriel Minnikin on banjo, mandolin and vocals and Chris Hillman on pedal steel. The collection pays homage to Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Lucinda Williams, Michelle Shocked’s Texas Campfire Songs, Jess Klein and Jolie Holland.

Gem has recently moved to Vancouver, BC in hope of finishing songs for her debut album, and to experience a different music and art scene. Gem is also the co-founder of Muma Moonshine's Festival, which has taken place in Durham, UK for the past three years running and actively supports independent, queer and LGBT musicians and artists.

This year, Gem Andrews played at the Americana Festival at the Sage Gateshead in July, and played a set on Amber Film's 'Secret Garden' sessions alongside Roseanne Cash, Howe Gelb & His Band of Gypsies, Kristen Hersch, The Handsome Family, Martin Stephenson and many others. Gem has also played support for Raul Malo, Beccy Owen, Kathryn Williams, The Cave Singers, Crooked Still, Laura Viers, Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart.
