Jemma & The Clifton Hillbillies

Jemma & The Clifton Hillbillies are pleased to release their debut single Fighting Mad which they will be playing for your listening enjoyment from 4pm every Sunday in January at Yarra Hotel Abbottsford!
Fighting Mad is unashamedly a love song, but it’s not a sugary confection about sunshine and lollipops.
Mix equal parts confession, devotion, desire, jealousy and insecurity. Then stir in a little self destructive behaviour - you know, the kind that only love can provoke - and you’ve got it.
i’m, fighting mad
you’re, you’re bleeding blue
i can keep you up all night
chase you round until i’m right
cos i’m, mad for you
i’m mad for you

Although Jemma & The Clifton Hillbillies wear their hearts on their sleeve, they are more than the sum of their parts and a surprisingly ambitious lot. Not one of
them actually resides in a trailer.Jemma & The Clifton Hillbillies started life as Jemma & Her Wise, Young, Ambitious Men, a longwinded and slightly ridiculous name derived from Lefty Frizell’s classic song Saginaw Michigan. They’ve played around Melbourne since 2012 in various guises and this year have renamed themselves and added a few new members to create The Clifton Hillbillies.

Jemma Rowlands - singerwoman & hands on hips holder
Sean McMahon - guitar & vocals
Ben Mastwyk - banjo & vocals
Cal Walker - bass & vocals
Josh Duiker - drums
Jason Bunn - fiddle

Their much-anticipated first album has a lively jamboree feel and features lusty singing, rich instrumentation including twanging pedal steel, harmonies aplenty and a guest appearance by Ben Franz.
The album also features Kate Alexander and Flora Smith.
