Gem Records Ltd

Posted 18th July 2007

Gem Records is a small independent Record label founded by Gemma Ingram in 1992 primarily as a base for her as an artist 'GEM'. On the 24th November 2003 Gem Records became a Limited company registered in England and Wales. Earlier on in the same year Gem had started production for her first solo album 'Jam' which was later released in 2004 on the Gem Records label.

The album was recorded in Gem's own studio in Kingston upon Thames with the help of her partner Nick Kirkland. From this studio she also ran 'The Gem School of Music' providing one of the best private and group music tuition services in Surrey.

Gem had originally started out teaching music to help make ends meet and had been teaching for many years prior to moving operations to the Kingston studio. In early 2005 Gem decided to wrap up teaching music independently and was looking for new avenues to make revenue for the label.

It was not long before new opportunities appeared as Gem Records started writing and producing commissioned music for the toy market. Not long after this Gem Records moved operations to Hertfordshire where Gem finally managed to put her own band together. Gem had spent many years playing live gigs in and around London as a solo artist but putting a band together had eluded her all this time. Gem's band 'Gem and the Stones' after many incarnations was formed.
