EP: Gemaine – Curious
20 Year-Old Compton-based Newcomer and RnB Singer Releases First Body of Work – Curious EP
“R&B singer Gemaine arrives straight out of Compton with a fresh sound that’s bound to make you stop in your tracks.” – VIBE
“We have a feeling this is only the beginning of a long-term career of stardom for Mr. Edwards.” – WatchLOUD
“At 19-years-old he shows not only a remarkable talent, but an exceptional passion and drive with a set of unlimited skills.” – GoodFellaMedia
Compton singer Gemaine may only be 20 years old, but his debut EP Curious explores relationships, heartbreak, and healing with soulfulness beyond his years. With a soaring voice that combines technical chops with passion and versatility, Gemaine takes listeners through his journey with his first body of work, his Curious EP, as he falls in love, experiences the downfall of a relationship, and picks himself back up.
“I’m so excited for fans to finally hear my entire project and to get more clarity about who I am,” Gemaine explained. “Thousands of songs are released everyday. Just knowing that you’re competing with that kind of noise is intimidating, but I believe in God and I believe that I was chosen to do this… I never understood why it could take a year to make an album until I started recording. There is so much that goes into it beyond just writing a good song – when you want everything to be the best it takes time.”
Although Curious is his first body of work, for the past year and a half, Gemaine has been building a steady buzz, starting with the song that began his career, “Freaky.” Originally recorded as a 6-second Vine video, the snippet spawned thousands of re-Vines, spurring him to create a full-length version, which has amassed almost 3 million Soundcloud and over 4,000 new plays daily on Spotify. Last week he released his sultry “Let Me In” single via VIBE, who raved “R&B singer Gemaine arrives straight out of Compton with a fresh sound that’s bound to make you stop in your tracks.” The 20 year-old newcomer has been immersed in music for as long as he could remember, spending most of his free time singing and making music at his church. A self-taught pianist, Gemaine is looking to do more with his talents than just sing. His goal is to create music that “makes people feel good and becomes an escape from their problems.” Gemaine’s debut EP, Curious, is out today.
