Interview with GEMS, the Deli's DC Area Emerging Artist of the Year.

Interview with GEMS, the Deli's DC Area Emerging Artist of the Year.

GEMS expoloded onto the DC scene last year, winning the Deli's DC Area Emerging Artist of the Year in 2013 with almost all of the juror votes. Their chill sounds, the beautiful voice of Lindsay Pitts and solid production combine to give the local listener a band they can cheer for as GEMS speeds along towards national recognition. In this interview, we tried to find out how GEMS was able to do so much in such a short time, and how they developed their thoughtful style and professional work-ethic.
