Today’s announcement:

Philadelphia’s Candice Martello, who writes and records as Hemming has released her very first video for her song “Hard on MySelf” via Speakers in Code. The song is currently available on the Linda Perry Project Season One EP on iTunes

Hemming, is the newest protégé’ of superstar songwriter and producer Linda Perry and the winner of Perry’s VH1 Show, Make or Break : The Linda Perry Project, a show developed by Perry as an antithesis to music competition shows. Candice Martello (Hemming), initially joined the show mid-season as one half of Philadelphia based punk band Omar with drummer Nick Fanelli, but caught Perry’s attention for her solo work.  Candice remained on the show developing her solo work which lead to a recording contract with Perry’s Custard Records. “This is one of my most proudest moments. When making any record a producer has a list of things you hope a artist brings to the studio, “ says Perry.  “Songs that are strong even without the bells and whistles. They are just good all on their own. Raw honest emotion, the kind of emotion that this industry was once built on. A voice you can believe. Creativity, talent and musicianship, and A Star.  When they walk into the room they are a star. When they sing each line you feel it believe it want to embrace it curl up next to it and hold on each breath til the end of time, because they are a Star you want to follow. Hemming is all of it!  I know she will prove to be much more.”
