About The Event
HAILING from the town famous for one of Australia’s greatest songwriters, Joy McKean, fellow country singer Jemma Beech is making her own mark in music.
The 26-year-old Yanderra girl, near Picton, where Joy McKean once lived, is all for girl power and showing the world she’s ready to tackle her dreams head on. Beech released That’s Just Me on September 7 and fans immediately embraced it, pushing it to No. 1 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart on release day and No. 19 on the ARIA Top 20 Australian Artist Country Albums Chart.
Her debut single, Stuck In The Mud, introduced Beech’s sassy side and explored musical territory normally reserved for the blokes – contemporary country music about modern country people. Big drums, bass and electric guitars playing huge riffs isn’t your typical sound for today’s contemporary country female singer, but this is where Beech is truly in her element.
When she’s not taking to the stage and entertaining crowds in pubs, bars, at b ‘n’ s balls and country festivals, she drives mine trucks in the Pilbara, now calling the remote town of Paraburdoo home. These experiences have inspired her even further, resulting in the recording of her debut album, That’s Just Me, and plenty more songs to come on future recordings.
“I needed more life experience and inspiration about Australian outback life, so I packed up, sold my car and flew west to the town Paraburdoo,” Beech said.
Beech is a country girl in just about every way, so becoming a country singer-songwriter came naturally to the artist who’s been gigging since she was a teenager. She pursued music seriously after graduating from the CMAA Academy of Country Music senior course in 2015 and attending The DAG Songwriters’ Retreat in the same year.
“It’s the real-life songs and stories where my heart truly lives,” Beech said.
