Her unique style of indie storytelling / spoken word stems from her time living in London, she used to live in a squat on Milman Road with friends. The electric meter would run on £1 coins and often no-one had £1 to put in the meter, so when the lights went out, they would sit around telling stories and playing guitar to kill time. This is how the band, Gem Rogers The Mil Men came about.

Following this, Gemma wrote a number of short plays, including a one-woman mini-folk-musical which was she took to festivals across the county and also had a sell-out run at Theatre503. She was part of the Emerging writers Group at the Bush Theatre and has set up a company that delivers engaging workshops to accompany the National Curriculum.

Since then, Gemma has had a triumphant couple of years performing in and around the UK and the festival circuit including regular spots at Glastonbury (Down the Rabbit Hole stage), Wilderness and Latitude.

Gemma released her debut single ‘Stop’, with 'My Idea of Fun' as a B-Side, in August, which received instant airplay on Radio X, BBC Radio 6 and Amazing Radio as well as being loved by Frank Turner. It has since racked up over 20k streams on Spotify!

'Stop' is a chronicle of the highs and lows of living in the capital and the inescapable social media frenzy world. Expect a musical explosion of playful lyrics fused with a darker undertone, accompanied with a humorous video, almost guaranteed to uplift your mood.

Her musical inspirations come from the likes of Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Ian Dury and the UK hip hop scene.

Along with Gemma, the band includes Sean Genockey and Alfie Jackson of The Holloways, they are currently working on their first EP, due for release in October.

"Gemma Rogers stuns our audiences each and every time - we absolutely love her!"
- Sofar Sounds London

“Gemma Rogers makes music that sounds fresh and edgy and, at the same time, familiar & almost recognizable. I think they used to call that great pop music”
-Curtis Stigers
