Gemma & The Travellers give a nod to the early deep Soul, R&B, Northern Soul and Funk of the 60s, but the unique songwriting gives a refreshing twist. Gemma has a powerful, inimitable voice and the rhythm section replies, as do the uplifting harmonies of sax, wurlitzer piano and guitar. Signed to “Légère Recordings”, one of Europe best Soul & Funk labels, their début album “Too Many Rules & Games” is released on 21 April 2017. Their latest single recently aired on BBC radio’s “Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show” and opened his live show at the Jazz Café in Camden London. With Gemma M on lead vocals, Robert P on guitar, Damien Bon Wurlitzer electric piano, Robin T on drums, Alan B on bass and Kevin H on saxophone tenor & baritone).
