Video of "St. James Infirmary" in London
Journey back to Hem's lovely October 11, 2021 show at Union Chapel in London with this video of Hem performing "St. James Infirmary." If you were there with me, you know that Sally recorded the band debuting their cover of this song, and now the video is here for everyone. Yay! You can further relive the show on its tour page, which has many photos, audio, and (more) video from this show.

New Hem EP in November
Good news! Hem has an EP coming out next month. It has four new songs plus one you may have heard before. I can neither confirm nor deny that the familiar song is "Identical Snowflakes," but it is a winter/holiday song that has never been released except quietly as a standalone digital song. Here's a live version of it from last year.

All About Me
Today is All About Hem's 10th birthday! TEN! I had no idea when I started this site that it would still be here 10 years later. A big thank you to everybody who has visited the site over the years, with special thanks to Hem's team at Nettwerk and to everybody who has sent me news, photos, and words of appreciation and encouragement. Thanks also to Geof, who has so nicely web hosted All About Hem for most of its life. As always, the biggest thanks goes to Hem, especially Dan, Gary, Sally, and Steve. I really had no idea when I started this site that I would ever interact with anybody in the band, but what a happy surprise that I can now call them friends. Thank you for everything, Hem!
