Not-so-Nameless girl Jemma set for bright lights
A TIVERTON singer is heading for the bright lights of music fame after a track she wrote with her band was remixed by a dance music DJ – helping to win a completely new audience.
Former Tiverton High School student Jemma Crook is the lead singer and co-writer of the band The Nameless Girl and a remix of her band's track Bright Light, in a trance style, has been signed to a trendy German label.
Cullompton-based DJ Nick The Kid spotted the track and used Jemma's vocals on a tune which is now being played and supported by some of the world's top DJs, including Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren and Judge Jules.
Jemma, 28, said: "It is currently being broadcast on loads of large and small UK radio stations and on BFBS radio, which is military based.

"We hope it will soon be played on Radio 1."
The indie-rock band travelled to Ibiza last year to promote themselves to dance music fans and a return visit to the Balearic party island is planned this summer.
Jemma said: "We are set to go back to Ibiza this year and perform the track live in bigger clubs, which I am just so excited about."
The new release is vastly different from the original slow-tempo version which was included on The Nameless Girl's debut album Bipolar, which is currently available for download on digital site iTunes.
Jemma, who is originally from Tiverton but is now based in London, is busy rehearsing with the band ahead of a support slot with re-formed Britpop band Republica in the capital next month.
Jemma recently returned to her old school as part of the bill at the recent A Concert For Alan charity variety show, which was organised by the Rotary Club of Tiverton in memory of Rotarian Alan Hunt. It raised more than £5,000 which will be donated to Hospiscare.
After a series of studio sessions, three new versions of the track for 2013 were presented by Nick to label boss Woody van Eyden, who approved the tracks for his Fenology imprint.
'Nick The Kid presents The Nameless Girl – Bright Light Remix' was released globally on Friday, February 15, and can be purchased at www.trackitdown.net/track/nick-the-kid-the-nameless-girl/bright-light-the-remixes/trance/5399122.html
The release contains three different remixes: a Digital Self and Tek-Tonic Mix – which Nick describes as "100 per cent Ibiza compatible and 100 per cent road-tested" – a Nick the Kid remix, which the trance DJ says is in the "energetic UK style" and has a higher bpm (beats per minute rate), and the Extravagance SL Mix by a German production team, which is described as creating an "uplifting" sound.
