"Truth, we don't wanna hear
It's too much to take
Don't like to feel out of control" - From Just a Ride
My Opinions and Recommendations
Jem is one of my new favorite artists. Her first album is relaxing and upbeat at the same time. She has a really interesting accent and the lyrics, while not profound, do have a certain catchiness. Her debut album, Finally Woken, has many great songs. My favorites are Wish I and Just a Ride. Listen to the whole CD though, I promise it will be worth it!
If you already love Jem and want to hear more artists like her, I recommend listening to Dido. Dido is a bit calmer than Jem, but both have a light, airy sound. Also, try Sarah Harmer. Sarah is more folk sounding and less pop sounding, but she also has a calming effect on me. Finally, try Sade. Sade is more sensual but she and Jem share a sultry voice and relaxing sound.
