Though a newly formed group, the members of Jemstate have been captivating audiences for over a decade.
Musical experiences include groups such as The McKenzies, The Heroes, The Nadas, Inner Element, Edmunds Crown and more.
Forming in the summer of 2005 Jemstate began tracing the steps of successful bands. With their experience and musicianship this band is sure to catch the eye and ear of people all over the country.

Jemstate is a straight forward rock band but don't let that fool you. Within the tightly arranged pop/rock songs are intricate rhythms and well planned harmonies. There is more than meets the eye to a Jemstate song. We would like to release the kind of albums that grow on you in phases until you can't find a reason to put in anything else.

Jemstate’s first release entitled, “Jemstate” blends melodic grooves and tight poppy guitar lines. The collaborating vocal harmonies are a nice change from today’s pop tracks.

Jemstate is a 4pc. rock band based in Des Moines Iowa. With solid grooves and excellent vocals, Jemstate’s sound rivals that of accomplished artists such as U2, Coldplay, King’s X and the Barenaked Ladies. Jemstate is known for their tight, melodic songs along with a dash of humor.

Jemstate is currently on tour in support of their self titled debut album. Kyle Munson from the Des Moines Register writes:
Des Moines band Jemstate's self-titled debut album doles out seriously catchy pop-rock grooves with lush falsetto harmonies. The danger with breezy, melodic songs such as these is veering into lightweight fluff. But this trio (bassist Jeremy Richards, guitarist Brad Seidenfeld and drummer Jason Smith) has the requisite crunchy guitars to stay grounded, especially in "See Me to the Moon" and "Erasable." Fans of the Nadas will feel at home.
