Gemma Louise could sing from the time she could talk. It became apparent to her family from early on she was destined to pursue her passion for music. Gemma has a voice reminiscent of Patsy Clyne, the same rich warm texture, but with a contemporary edge.
“Gemma is a remarkable young singer, and I’m sure she will achieve great success in her music, or whatever she chooses to pursue in life. It’s a pleasure to work with such a dedicated and talented young artist” – Lyn Bowtell, multiple Golden Guitar winner and Gemma’s mentor.
