Drawing on elements of Country/Americana, folk and blues, The Jemima Price Band delivers “what, we’ll dub ‘Celtic Country’ for want of a better word" (R2 - Rock 'n' Reel Magazine). It is a collaboration between singer-songwriter Jemima Price (with two albums and a book of poetry under her belt as a solo artist she was hailed as a “talent to watch” by Cosmopolitan) and her long-term partner writer/guitarist Mirek Latosek. The couple has been writing and performing together for over 9 years, developing a love of ‘roots’ music as common ground within their diverse influences and backgrounds. 

From their debut album No Alibi For Alice (featuring guest performances by bass legend Herbie Flowers and BJ Cole) they have developed their style to incorporate a contemporary electric element, culminating in their recently released second album Fragile House. Recorded and produced by Mirek, they also had the great pleasure of working with Bruce Kaphan on the album (album credits include American Music Club, Sheryl Crow, John Lee Hooker, Chris Isaak). 

After taking a break from gigging to record, the band are back on the circuit as a four piece with long standing member Darren Reynolds on double/electric bass and new member Danny Watson on electric guitar and guitar synth. 

Credits include guest band on a BBC Introducing South live session with Phil Jackson, headlining at The Ropetackle and Chequer Mead Arts Centre, The Crawley Folk Festival, interviews on BBC radio Surrey & Sussex.

“This new album is fab, perfect for a summer’s evening”.
Mark Carter BBC Sussex & Surrey 

“Fragile House stirs pop, rock, roots and country flavours, the resultant mix an undoubtedly tasty dish with commercial appeal”. 
RnR Magazine

“Musically Fragile House is quite diverse, and is really worth a listen”.
