Gemma is an experienced and extremely versatile studio singer. Gemma holds a 1st class honours MA and BMus in classical vocal performance but has gone on to specialise as a contemporary vocalist and vocal coach. Her background as both a classical and contemporary vocalist and coach make Gemma a very well trained and technical singer with a deep understanding and control of her instrument which allows her the freedom to respond expressively and stylistically in the studio to almost any genre of music.
Gemma can provide backing vocal arrangements but also works well with notated parts, demo recordings or on the spot direction from producers, music directors or songwriters.
