Introducing Jodie Marie

Siobhanne Beattie


Monday 18th July 2011 sees the release of Single Blank Canvas, the debut track from singer/songwriter, and exciting new emerging talent, Jodie Marie. She was born and raised in Narbeth, Wales, the remoteness of which has surely contributed to Jodie Marie’s sense of aloof isolation calmly present in her music. With a disinterest in pop music, her work has instead been fueled by a diet of blues, which has now given birth to her signature, genuine sound as a new recording artist.

Discovered by Transgressive Management (the team responsible for excellent acts such as Foals and The Noisettes), Jodie Marie is a much-needed breath of fresh air, with her natural talent and quiet beauty. In addition, the quality and substance of her songs have already leant her favourable comparison to greats female acts such as Carole King and Joni Mitchell.

Jodie Marie’s debut album is due for release later this year, and her unique sound and style has been captured in this through one-take songs produced by Bernard Butler (who previously worked with Duffy) and Ed Harcourt (who has worked with Paloma Faith). With her talent she is surely due for success.
