Stories From Gem is the Swedish singer-songwriter and producer, Jenny Johansson.
She creates an intimate atmosphere with powerful vocals, laced with soulful narratives and intriguing melodies that alternates between darkness and light. Her music is a vibrant mix of alternative rock and indie pop, driven by layers of acoustic and electric guitars, thrumming riffs, melodic piano and shifting dynamics.
Over the past year, Stories from Gem has done various acoustic gigs on Swedish radio and at festivals and venues in Sweden and Denmark,
such as Göteborgs Kulturkalas, Folk å Rock, BeatMeet Festival, Moriska Paviljongen,
Tjili-Pop, Stockholm Folk Festival.
Jenny started writing songs at the age of 8. When she was 13, she taught herself to play guitar. As a teenager, she was noted for her demos that she published on the Internet. Shortly after, she won a national demo music competition.
After high school, she spent several years traveling and working abroad, but decided to move back home to focus on her music. Determined to become her own producer, she set up a simple home studio in her bedroom and began to learn how to produce her songs, while writing new material.
- I was tired of being dependent on someone else to be able to produce my music. I had written so many songs during the years and was eager to record them. So I thought; "Fuck it, I do it myself".
Her debut EP will be released digitally in 2017.
