NML are delighted to present the return of US-based Jessica Clemmons to the UK. Jess has been spending time working on new music over the last couple of years and is excited to announce a brand-new Jess and The Bandits album set for release in 2022. Support comes from award-winning UK singer-songwriter, Harriet Rose.


Frontwoman Jessica Clemmons formed her Bandits in 2012. With her big voice and warm personality, the Texas native felt an instant connection with the four Brits who made up her band and shared her love for authentic country music. Though over the years members have come and gone as they carve out their own musical journeys, Jess and the band have forged her own brand of UK country, releasing music to critical acclaim, touring extensively and growing a dedicated fan base along the way. 

There is nothing they value more than performing live and connecting with their fans, which has been evident in their busy touring schedule. As well as sold out UK dates, their festival highlights include The Isle of White Festival, Country to Country and Cornbury Festival. 

The band’s singles have racked up multiple BBC Radio 2 playlists, and they’ve even performed live on the late Terry Wogan’s Radio 2 Sunday sessions. Beyond the airwaves, they have appeared on ITV’s Lorraine, Aled Jones’ Weekend, Channel Five’s The Wright Stuff and Sky’s Sunrise show. They signed an endorsement deal with high-street retailers ‘Evans’ and debuted feel-good single ‘Nitty Gritty' in The Independent newspaper. 


UK born singer/songwriter Harriet Rose, is a small town girl with big dreams. Gigging since the age of 12, Harriet’s music and performances have been highly acclaimed everywhere and she is well known for her ability to draw the audience in and have them hang onto every word.

Over the last year, Harriet has made a name for herself in the UK Americana/Country scene, being nominated for awards and supporting established artists. She has released two previous singles, both of which were received with high praise and continues to grow her fan base globally. During the lockdown period, Harriet remained busy performing numerous live streams in both the UK and USA, winning awards as well was taking part in podcasts and interviews.

Coming out of lockdown in 2021, Harriet hit the ground running. Alongside her band she played sold out headline gigs, gigged up and down the country, performed at the major festival Tramlines, and also completed a UK headline tour throughout November. To top the year off, she also received three awards in the 2021 Arc Radio Listeners Awards for Female of the Year, Live Performer of the Year and Newcomer of the Year as well as UK Female of the Year and UK Song of the Year from Live Country Sessions.
