New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Los Angeles-based band JEMS will release their debut self-titled album on May 17 (pre-order). Today the band shared, "Right On Time," the latest single from the forthcoming release withThe Bluegrass Situation. About the song the band told The Bluegrass Situation, "'Right on Time' is a true trio song. We wrote it together recounting our individual experiences with love igniting a spark in a dark or lost time. We have all experienced being on the right side of timing with respective relationships. The song sets a scene that begins in a somewhat slumbered state and steadily builds to an awakening that nature and the movement of the world is sometimes on our side. We love the way we get to share the storytelling of this song musically and lyrically as three individual but connected women."

"Right On Time" follows up the release of "Like Myself" which premiered at AudioFemme along with an exclusive interview with the band. About the song Audiofemme says, "If you've been looking for the right stretch, shower, and take-on-the-world tune, we've got one for you. 'Like Myself,' the new single from JEMS - comprised of singer-songwriters Emily Colombier, Jessica Rotter, and Sarah Margaret Huff - utilizes three-part harmony to empower those who have been mistreated and are looking to break away." "Like Myself" can also be shared at SoundCloud. JEMS have also announced a Los Angeles record release show coming up on May 18 at The Hotel Cafe. Tickets are available HERE.

Following their success as solo artists, Emily Colombier, Jessica Rotter, and Sarah Margaret Huff joined forces to create the transcendent Alternative Folk trio, JEMS. Emily and Jessica grew up in Los Angeles singing together, both children of professional musicians. Sarah Margaret was introduced to Jessica and Emily shortly after moving to LA from Nashville in 2015. Through collaborations on their own projects, they discovered how beautifully their voices blended and decided to share their music with the world. Sarah Margaret Huff's bright soaring timbre is combined with Emily Colombier's soulful earthy quality and met in the middle by Jessica Rotter's colorful blend of the two. Through rich three-part harmonies, JEMS weaves stories, sounds, and raw emotion with a shimmering fervor. Listeners of all kinds can't seem to resist the songwriting prowess and vocal alchemy of JEMS.

Their self-titled debut album echoes the journey they have had as a trio. Three uniquely individualistic singer-songwriters combining their different voices and stories to craft an album with a message of individuality and self-acceptance in all moments of life. Each member of JEMS has had deep experiences owning their own truth and identity, despite environments or circumstances that could have silenced their authenticity. As a trio, their shared voice is that of strength and chooses to boldly illuminate vulnerability. Through songwriting sessions that sometimes look more like group therapy, the three are able to write on one another's life experiences and empathetically build a bridge to a broader message. The trio is inspired by the sounds of Laurel Canyon and the musical storytelling and authentic performances that defined that era. They hope to break open the time capsule and artistically balance musicality and lyrical intellect in a relatable and emotional way.

JEMS debut LP was recorded at the historic Village Studios in Studio D, with the trio singing their vocals together in the room Stevie Nicks designed. Engineered by Scott Smith (Jose Gonzales, Junip, Carole King, Grizzly Bear, The Handmaid's Tale, The Revenant), Mixed by Jason Larocca (Black Mirror, Juliette Lewis), Mastered by Doug Van Sloun (First Aid Kit, Bright Eyes, She & Him, Jonathan Rice, Kings of Convenience, M. Ward, Sea Wolf), and Produced by longtime collaborator Cazz Brindis. They flushed out the band with the talents of Adam Tressler on Guitar (Angus & Julia Stone, Kacey Musgraves, Pet Shop Boys, Demi Lovato, The Mowgli's), Adam Popick on Bass (Matthew Perryman Jones, Madi Diaz), Adam Christgau on Drums (Ingrid Michaelson, Nicole Atkins, Lucius), Carey Frank on Organ (Tedeschi Trucks, Jane Monheit) and Paula Hochhalter, Emily's mom on Cello (Barbra Streisand, James Taylor).

JEMS are anticipated to be as successful collectively as Emily, Jessica, and Sarah Margaret are individually. Between the three, the songstresses have shared accomplishments with some of today's choice artists like Portugal. The Man, She & Him, Carole King, Macklemore, Alicia Keys, Sam Smith, and Daft Punk, among others, and have hit milestones in their self-produced work- like the attention-grabbing release of Emily and Jessica's mashup "Stay/Animal," which earned them the #1 spot on Hype Machine and over 1 Million streams on Spotify and having many songs placed in and written for film and television."
