Artist details

Jim Pembroke

Jim Pembroke
Country
Finland
Bio / info
A British expatriate, Pembroke had played with London group Taverners' Guild before arriving in Finland in 1965. He immediately found himself in some demand, gigging on an ad hoc basis with various lineups (e.g. the Beatmakers, later renamed Jormas), until forming The Pems. He joined Blues Section in 1967, recording a blues-jazz-pop fusion album now considered seminal in Finnish rock. After the band folded Pembroke taught himself piano, then joined Wigwam in early 1969. He has remained their frontman and principal songwriter, while also releasing occasional solo records.
