Preaching From the Pews: Jemima Surrender

As the eldest child of eight, Jemima Surrender‘s blistering sobriety and heady maturity comes as no surprise.

Comparatives to The Band end with Jemima’s odd choice of alias; some of her material is tainted with the down and out rock’n’roll of the 1960s act, but it draws better comparison to the likes of Cat Power, Scout Niblett and PJ Harvey. Note that all of the above are American – Jemima may well be Britain’s answer to the call, or so the poignant material she’s produced thus far would have you believe.

A sometimes collaborator with The Hysterical Injury and Artscare Records, Jemima can regularly be found playing gigs in Bristol and the city’s surrounding area.
