At 22 years old with her teenage years completed within the Manchester music scene, Jess Kemp made her debut with ‘Stars’ in March 2015. The following 12 months saw Jess playing gigs all over the North West and a busy indie festival schedule which presented her with the title “The Serial Gigger”.
“Stars” continued to stay fresh within the ears of the North West however the demand for new music brought the launch of her debut EP “Camden”. Boasting more bolder and exciting tracks already featured by BBC Introducing & BBC Radio 2. To celebrate the release Jess went on to headline Manchester Academy 3 with the help of her full band.
Off the back of “Camden” Jess and her band jetted off to play a 4 date European tour which took place in August 2016. Since, 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.
