We Plug 2 Y.O.U… ZEMMY

div style=”text-align: justify;”When I received an email six days ago that read ‘New Artist To Consider Plugging’ from one Zemmy Momoh, I thought it was from the same Zemmy Momoh that I went to boarding school with a decade ago and I wasn’t gonna open the email because the Zemmy I know cannot sing to save her life. Anyway I opened the email and to my pleasantnbsp;surprise, it wasn’t (1) the Zemmy Momoh I knew and (2) this Zemmy Momoh could actually sing! We’ll refer to her by her stage name which is purely and simply a href=”http://www.zemmymusic.co.uk/”ibZemmy/b/i/a…/divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”br /div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”a href=”http://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/142/l_bc618fea9efc4257a15a9015acc387a2.jpg” imageanchor=”1″ style=”margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;”img border=”0″ src=”http://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/142/l_bc618fea9efc4257a15a9015acc387a2.jpg” //a/divbr //divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”SO who is Zemmy then? Well I’ll let her tell you herself…/divblockquote style=”text-align: justify;”bispan class=”Apple-style-span” style=”color: #a64d79;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-size: xx-small;””I’m a female pop artist originally from Nigeria but I’ve been a Londoner for the last thirteen years. I like to think of myself as falling stylistically somewhere between Norah Jones and Beyonce and would describe my style as soulful pop. I started making a go at being a career singer/songwriter when I finished my undergrad degree. I found myself a lovely guitarist in early 08, a lovely manager in early 09 and my brilliant drums and bass were recruited at the end of last year. I’ve been with my wonderful band for just over a year now and we’ve spent this year (since January) gigging all over London.” – Zemmy/span/span/i/b/blockquotediv style=”text-align: justify;”It took me the first song to be completely hooked on this Pop/Soul singer and her other songs do NOT disappoint either. There’s something about her voice that you cannot help but be captivated by and I just love her whole sound which she describes as ‘soulful pop’ but it’s more than that. I would buy her album right now + it’s an added bonus that some of thenbsp;songs you’re about to hear are live recordings and I know that not all of you will be immediate fans of live music over studio recordings but there’s something about the organic elementnbsp;and authenticity that shines through on Zemmy’s songs that the live music definitely helps bring out that much more BUT enough of me talking, let’s listen to some music!/divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”br //divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”object height=”81″ width=”100%” param name=”movie” value=”http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F7543456secret_url=false”/paramparam name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”/paramembed allowscriptaccess=”always” height=”81″ src=”http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F7543456secret_url=false” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”100%”/embed /object a href=”http://soundcloud.com/wepluggoodmusic/zemmy-like-drowning-live”/a br /br /This one is a song titled ‘Like Drowning’ and I quite like it, I quite like it a lot.

I totally love this cover and how Zemmynbsp;absolutelynbsp;switches the levels on this song, I didn’t even recognise it at first. You need to check out the original (a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wfo_50VhIUY”biHERE/i/b/a) to fully appreciate what Zemmy and her band have done here. They completely turn this rock song on its head and bring it down quite a few notches and turn it into this rather colourful poppy soulful pop song. I’m not sure if fans of Kids in Glass Houses will like it BUT I definitely do like it amp; hopefully you do too…br /br /I’m loving Zemmy right now and I just wanna hear so much more music from her! You should definitely be up on this young woman BUT if you’re not yet completely sold on Zemmy as an amazing artist then these next two songs should literally tip you right over…br /br /object height=”81″ width=”100%” param name=”movie” value=”http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F7548627secret_url=false”/paramparam name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”/paramembed allowscriptaccess=”always” height=”81″ src=”http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F7548627secret_url=false” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”100%”/embed /object a href=”http://soundcloud.com/wepluggoodmusic/zemmy-limbo”/a br /br /This one is called ‘Limbo’ and I absolutely LOVE it… On constant repeat right now I tell ya! It almost reminds me of a Dido song (only slightly though) with itsnbsp;subtletynbsp;and the understated but also (at the same time) commanding vocals. Without mirroring my earlier comments about her voice, it really is just captivating and the musical backdrop, especially those drum patterns, aptly adds to this very compelling listen! I hope you like this one as much as I do.br /br /div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”a href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_816E7vkb0Ds/TPUvR5x-C-I/AAAAAAAAAds/RvtN1HwVCFw/s1600/Zemmy+The+100+Club+06.jpg” imageanchor=”1″ style=”margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;”img border=”0″ height=”266″ src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_816E7vkb0Ds/TPUvR5x-C-I/AAAAAAAAAds/RvtN1HwVCFw/s400/Zemmy+The+100+Club+06.jpg” width=”400″ //a/divbr /I know I should go now amp; leave you to listen to the music without me butting in every five or so minutes with my two pence BUT just one more and I will be gone!

The variety in her music + her ability and willingness to play around successfully within such genres as Pop, Soul, Rock and even a bit of Folk is just beautiful and it means that she appeals to a wider range of audience such as Y.O.U and I think it’s her voice that gives her that appeal. The first two songs we featured could not be more far apart and different from the latter two but her voice pins them all together. Did I already say that I’d buy her album right now? Well I so would!br /br /Utterly amp; Completely SOLD!br /br /Keep Tabs on Zemmy: a href=”http://www.facebook.com/zemmym”Facebook/a // a href=”http://www.twitter.com/zemmyofficial”Twitter/a // a href=”http://www.myspace.com/zemmym”Myspace/abr /br /Until the Next Time…br /br //div
