Music Diaries

Music Diaries, hosted by Spectrum News 1's Amrit Singh, gives viewers an intimate, inside look at the stories of Southern California-based artists and bands—some established, some on the rise—and their relationship with the cities that provided the backdrop for their careers.

Each episode will start with a journey to the neighborhoods and locations that helped shape these artists and their songs. Then it's off to our Skyline Stage high above Downtown Los Angeles for an exclusive performance Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Spectrum News 1. 




Amrit Singh meets alternative folk trio JEMS, comprising of Emily Colombier, Sarah Margaret Huff, and Jessica Rotter, inside the world-famous recording complex Village Studios in West Los Angeles.

Within Studio D, JEMS came together to record their self-titled debut album in a single day, which helped define them as a band.

After demonstrating how they compose their unique harmonies, JEMS take to the Skyline Stage high above DTLA for an exclusive performance.
