Hemmingway was formed by CeCe Hemmings and David Moriaty. They joined forces after meeting at one of CeCe's On the Pulse multimedia events in Chelmsford. Both had a dream of creating an innovative sound, coupled with hooks that create a deep connection with their audience, using elements of drum n bass, dubstep, punk, electro, and pop. Their unique style has been described as, "Siouxsie paying homage to Amy Winehouse over modern, fresh beats".Their debut, self-titled EP was released in September 2016, which includes their debut single, 'Rise Again', released in July 2016, which received tons of support, being played on BBC Introducing, Phoenix FM, Miskin Radio, Colne FM and CCR FM. Last year, they clocked up an impressive 60+ gigs this year, including performances at Cosmic Puffin Festival and Eight Ash Green Festival. They were also invited to record a number of live radio podcasts for Seacroft Sessions, Paul Dupree, Michelle Ward, Chay Appleyard and Loxley's Corner to name a few. Lyrically, they do not shy away from controversy. Their songs range from commenting on domestic violence, immigration, and austerity to name a few. Always socially conscious, they hope to strike a chord in people's hearts, whilst shaking the foundations of every venue they play with their huge sound
