Little Gems has a website at

Little Gems combines the magic of three-part harmony with the driving forces of indie folk rock.

Individually they are eclectic, having played everything from Renaissance music to Trip Hop, Samba to Balkan folk, Country Western to Indie Pop. Members of Little Gems have performed for the Pope in the Sistine Chapel, sang topless at the Fillmore, appeared on television from Los Angeles to Serbia, and played with everyone from the Kronos Quartet to Chali 2na. Together they have produced or performed on over 65 albums, played thousands of shows across the US, Canada, and Europe, and sung in over 20 languages.

Since the summer of 2021, Velvy & Jenny have been presenting concerts in their Grass Valley backyard.  What started out as a modest neighborhood event has evolved into a bonafide concert 'happening', with A-level artists, impeccable sound, and beautiful vibe.
