2013 Preview: Listen Out For – Alice Jemima

28 Nov

We’re halfway through our series of artists to Listen Out For in 2013 and today we are featuring another singer of beautiful songs. We’d heard of Alice Jemima a long time before we actually heard her thanks to Robin of Breaking New Waves persistently and excitedly waxing lyrical about her on his twitter. We’re glad he did though, for when we finally settled down to listen her All The Boyfriends EP, we were treated to sounds that are more charming than a Disney Prince.

She sings with a sweetness and sincerity that is utterly bewitching, be it on her own songs or delicate covers of other artists such as her hauntingly beautiful version of “Safe/Pain” by Strangers, which you can hear below. At just 19 it unsurprising her music has an innocence to it, but it is not naive, more optimistic and full of love, it exudes tenderness. Simply put, you can’t help but smile when you hear her sing.

2012 was quite the year for Alice, at the time of writing she is burning up the Amazing Radio chart and this comes just weeks after she recorded a session for BBC Radio 1. She has been prolific in the past 12 – 18 months, recording and uploading tracks to YouTube, SoundCloud or wherever she could. The EP marked a significant step in her on going rise and with any luck, another release (maybe even an album) won’t be too far away. Like us, people are beginning to wake up to the sheer joy of Alice Jemima and want to hear more. It can’t be much longer before she breaks out in a big way, she is definitely one to listen out for in 2013.

    It’s been really interesting watching UK blogs slowly come on board to the songs of Alice since I first started posting them 19 months ago when I ‘discovered’ her by accident and fell in love with her music. It’s made me realise that as a blogger you can have a bit of influence if you get behind an artist that you really believe in and support 100% but unless your blog is hugely read (which let’s face it no UK blog is) you do have to keep celebrating and shouting about that artist for a while before word gets out.

    It’s still very early days for her but there’s no doubt that in terms of people taking notice, that things are happening – and not just blogers these days either 🙂

    Alice plays a show in London on the 5th Dec curated by Rob Da Bank at St Barnabas House alongside Kitty Daisy & Lewis and rising star Lulu James.

      That’s an excellent point Robin. We shouldn’t be afraid to shout loud and shout often about music we love and want to share.

      The trick, which you pulled off magnificently in your support of Alice, is balancing enough shouting to get people interested against so much shouting that people just ignore it. Certainly that is something we have been worried about, effectively desensitising readers/listeners to certain acts because we have written about them quite often, but that is just testament to our enthusiasm for the music.

      Excellent promotion of Alice’s next show too btw, very impressed.

    We like Alice, very innocent, sweet vocals.
