Biography

Jemima James was born in Vermont in 1950, and raised in Colorado.

She is the descendant of a prominent if complex family- William James is her great grandfather, Henry James, her great uncle. Her father, an artist, was an alcoholic, unpredictable and castigating, keeping the household in a constant state of upheaval.

Jemima started playing guitar and singing at an early age and, fresh out of high school, hit the road to make music her way of life. At various times she became part of the performing musician population of Boston, New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Mostly she sang original songs of her own invention and gathered a devoted following. Her songs and style of singing appealed to a wide variety of musical tastes including folk, country & western and the blues.
