Inverness Singer Heads State Side for Life-Changing Trip
A 24 year old Inverness singer-songwriter is preparing to leave Inverness for the trip of a lifetime.
Naim born Jemma Tweedie will be joining 2 other artists from The Famous Company for a week of songwriting bootcamps, recording sessions and performance opportunities. Whilst in LA, Jemma will be working with an award winning team of songwriters and producers whose credits include hitmakers will.i.am, One Direction, Lauryn Hill, Brian Eno, Joni Mitchell and Sade. Amongst them the team have a number accolades including Emmy Awards and session work with some of the worlds’ biggest artists. The aim of the trip is to give UK artists an opportunity to experience the height of the global music industry in the entertainment capital of the world.
Drawing inspiration from Depeche Mode and Charli XCX, Jemma's songwriting blends dark, electronic beats with fun, glittering, synth-pop vocals. Having previously gained exposure under a different name, Jemma has recently relaunched herself as 'Lilura' to represent a new direction in her music career.
Speaking about the opportunity Jemma said, “I can’t wait to head out to LA and work alongside some really great writers and producers. I’m hoping this is just the start of bigger things to come, but I know I can’t let up if I want to become the best musician possible. I hope this trip allows me an opportunity to become a more experienced artist with some great new songs”.
When Jemma returns to Inverness she has a busy schedule preparing for the release of her new EP 'No Control' on 29th April at a gig at The Playhouse in Naim.
