R&B, Northern Soul and Funk
Gemma & the Travellers gives a nod to the early deep Soul, R&B, Northern Soul and Funk of the 60's but the unique songwriting gives a refreshing twist. Gemma has a powerful, inimitable voice, inspired by the likes of Dusty Springfield, Julie Driscoll, Etta James & Aretha Franklin.
Gemma has a distinctive voice; a Soul woman who left the south of Italy as a teenager with a small bag in her hand and a bit of cash in her back pocket. Travelling through Europe, Gemma met Robert P., an Anglo-Swedish guitarist in Germany and formed a travelling duo which ended up returning to Robert’s home town, London. After many years getting sick and tired of the city’s “distractions”, the duo sought a more creative
environment to create and fell in love with the mystical Northern Brittany, where they formed the band “Gemma & the Travellers”.
Signed to “Légère Recordings”, one of Europe’s best Soul & Funk labels, their début album “Too Many Rules & Games” was released on 28th April 2017. Gemma writes all of her songs with the help of Robert P. on the guitar. Gemma takes inspiration from Dusty Springfield, Julie Driscoll, Etta James & Aretha Franklin.
