As the year progresses, you're bound to be inundated with "next big thing" type acts gracing your screens and playlists because, well #content. Alice Jemima will probably be part of that list but fortunately, she's got the talent and a growing list of credentials worthy of being a "one to watch" as it were.

The Devon-based singer/songwriter already had a firm fan in BBC Radio 1 DJ and Bestival founder Rob Da Bank, who signed her to his Sunday Best after he entered a competition he was running. "He was doing a competition called 'A Song In Seven Hours' where you responded to random song titles such as Psychedelic Bacon. I wrote a song about that, he liked it, and I won tickets to Bestival." The pair kept a connection and soon he invited Jemima to participate in a session at the legendary Maida Vale studios in 2014; her cover of Blackstreet's 'No Diggity' gained close to three million spins.

For 2016, Jemima will release her debut EP Liquorice, which is set for release later this month. 'So' is a delicately delightful indie-pop number laced with infectious guitar plucks and a foot-tapping drum pattern that will ring in your brain for a lot longer than you'd expect. Following a well-received set at The Great Escape in May, Jemima is playing her debut headline show at the Sebright Arms on June 15 while the EP is set for release two days later on the 17th (it's available to pre-order now on iTunes via Sunday Best Recordings).
