Praise for Jemima Foxtrot 

“The brilliant Foxtrot is the one to watch”

The Observer

“Jemima Foxtrot is refreshingly upbeat. Her stories of twenty-something life ring truer than your average performance poet. Not only that but it sounds great; the sonics trip off her tongue between snippets of singing in a truly unforgettable voice. Mark my words, we’ll be hearing a lot more more from her.”

Luke Wright

“Jemima Foxtrot is a revelation…Her poetry is sharp and intelligent, delivered with confident, dramatic timing, and interspersed with song”

Write Out Loud

“Eloquent, warm, beautiful and tough. Astonishing”

Mik Artistik

  1. What a wonder, not Janis Joplin or 1950’s American Cafe in small cities, but the mixture of poetry, crazy song, goes in and out of meter? and yes this is a most jolly, interesting performance… Hope she gets lots of pounds and little pence, she got something to sing and write about for women without a means too… Thanks, atk

  2. Jemima,
    I’m sorry that I ( Helen) and my friend Kate – we talked with you Wednesday Jan 31 in the Perth festival precinct couldn’t make your next show. Please make it back to include the Perth Writers Festival that’s on soon, next year in your tour if you can… I’ll look out for you!
