Felicia Douglass, better known for her work in the experimental rock band Ava Luna, and producer Erik Grundel have created an exciting new project. Together, as Gemma, they will release their debut As Ever on October 2nd.

Douglass is no stranger to collaborations as she has also worked with Mr. Twin Sister and Toro y Moi. Naturally, the two artists fell into a collaboration with each other after repeatedly crossing paths while on tour. Douglass and Grundel bonded immediately and wasted no time with getting to work. Effortlessly, the two crafted their own unique R&B sound mixed with some bright electro-pop.

“We never butted heads about parts of the songs; I always liked what Felicia contributed, hopefully she enjoyed what I was doing. We were on the same page when something wasn’t working…the album developed in a really natural way,” said Grundel

The first preview we get of As Ever is the album’s title track. It’s a laid back soulful mix of Douglass’ silky smooth vocals delicatly accompanied by Grundel’s creative beat.

As Ever will be released on October 2nd via Inflated Records. The title track can be heard above and the album can be pre-ordered via Gemma’s Bandcamp.
