Hemes is an up and coming singer and songwriter based in South Wales, she has recently released her debut EP “Matters of the mind” which is sonically diverse whilst still staying true to Hemes’ sound, the tracks range from bubbly electric guitar lead songs in “Headache” and “Faking a smile” to more mellow, cinematic and RnB inspired tracks in “Calm” and ” Something good”. The EP is lyrically bold and specific and is a capsule into Hemes’ thoughts, discussing topics like overthinking, anxiety, and reeling for a sense of relief.

Mixing R&b tones with catchy pop melodies Hemes takes influence from artists such as The Weekend, Grace Carter and Griff. Based in South Wales, Hemes was born to Arabic parents and her love for music and songwriting stemmed from being raised around a mix of western and middle eastern music, she takes inspiration from personal experiences of growing up, mental health and self-discovery.
