Stories From Gem is the solo project of 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. Driven by dreamy guitars, melodic riffs and dynamic rhythms.
Over the past year, she has played at various festivals and venues in Sweden, together with a small band set. Such as Göteborgs Kulturkalas, Folk å Rock, BeatMeet Festival,
Moriska Paviljongen, Stockholm Folk Festival, Mejeriet, Inkonst. She has also performed her music live on Swedish Radio P4 and local radio.
Stories from Gem is currently working on her debut EP, which is expected to be released in 2017.
Jenny started writing songs at the age of 8. When she was 13, she taught herself to play guitar and was later noted for her demos that she published on the Internet. Shortly after, she won a digital 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 songs.
- 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".
