Britta Phillips was 21 when she was cast as the singing voice of the cartoon character, Jem, lead singer of the fictitious Jem & the Holograms. In 1988 she co-starred in the guilty-pleasure comedy film Satisfaction about an all-girl rock band. The film features Julia Roberts (in her first big-screen appearance) and Justine Bateman. After the film’s release, Britta co-founded the real-life shoegaze band The Belltower, who moved to London and released one album and a handful of EPs before breaking up in 1996. After a short stint playing bass with Ben Lee, Britta joined Luna in 1999, met her future husband, Dean Wareham, and made three albums with the band (she is still a member).
