Others about ENGO: 3voor12 (The Netherlands):
"'Cause of their mixture of several cool genres and music, you can't put ENGO in one category. They are musically really good and have a mindblowing stage presence. The band's enthusiasm is contagious. The melodic songs and fanatic moves are a succesful combination." Autona Magazine (Germany):
"Indie-Rock, somewhere between Nirvana, No Doubt in their early days, the legendary Doors and Wir Sind Helden. Yet ENGO, adding Jazz and 70s Funk influences, still manages to maintain its own style!"
This petite Melbourne born songstress began her musical journey from a young age, expressing herself using recorder, flute, guitar, piano, kazoo and vocals. A little bit cutting- edge, Jem took her folky tones to community events, recitals and eisteddfods. Her refusal to sing standard pop songs whilst showing her midriff, or changing the lyrics to a Beatles tune to make it more politically correct, made it clear that making a living from winning community eisteddfods was a dream needing to die.?So she kept writing.
