The Jemima Price Band is UK based, with songs that draw on elements of Country/Americana, folk and blues: “what, we’ll dub ‘Celtic Country’ for want of a better word" (R2 - Rock 'n' Reel Magazine). It is fronted by singer-songwriter Jemima Price along with collaborator writer/guitarist Mirek Latosek; who met and married after Mirek came to live in the UK from Poland fifteen years ago.

The band has recently released their second album"Fragile House", which Mirek both recorded and produced. They also had the great pleasure of working with Bruce Kaphan on the album (hailed as one of the music industry’s finest and most sought after musicians, producers, and engineers with album credits that include American Music Club, Sheryl Crow, The Black Crowes, R.E.M., John Lee Hooker, Chris Isaak and many others). The album has a strong country feel, brushed with Celtic sentiment, but with a significant contemporary electric element that lends itself to memorable choruses  perfect for that long summer drive with the windows down. The dark beauty of 'The Lighthouse' in particular portrays the emotion that flows through the album.

Previously Jemima had a career as a solo artist - with two albums and a book of poetry under her belt, she was hailed as a “talent to watch” by Cosmopolitan and as having “ the potential to outperform any of the season’s crop of female singer-songwriters” by Q Magazine. She was also compared by Time Out to Kate Bush and has supported artists such as the much missed late Bap Kennedy, Jools Holland and Deacon Blue. She first collaborated with Mirek on a couple of tracks on her second album "Turn Out The Light" which was conceived as a book of poems and songs "About A Girl" (published Elliott & Thompson)“…..this delightful,bitter-sweet collection includes lyrics which do not need to be sung, and songs that can be read silently". They subsequently formed a firm musical partnership, writing and performing together ever since; developing a love of 'roots' music as common ground within their diverse influences and backgrounds.This culminated in an impressive debut album "No Alibi For Alice" in2011, which garnered some glowing press. It unravels a journey through threads of country, folk and blues headed by Jemima’s distinctive vocals and featuring guest performances by bass legend Herbie Flowers and BJ Cole.

They were chosen a for a BBC Introducing South live session with Phil Jackson, and live performance include headlining at The Ropetackle, The Chequer Mead Arts Centre and playing the Crawley Folk Festival. On behalf of the band Jemima has also been interviewed on BBC radio Surrey & Sussex.
