ABOUT

Jodie was born and brought up in Glasgow. At 8 years old, a family holiday to Portugal saw her mesmerised by a local band playing, in particular the saxophone and so for the next 5 years, she took lessons, kick starting a love of music.


By age 12, she’d persuaded her brother to teach her a few chords on guitar and signed up for the school talent show, winning second place on her first time in front of a live audience. The adrenaline rush spurred her on to try her hand at busking, and at the tender age of 13, played guitar and sang her favourite songs to commuters in Glasgow city centre. Before long, she became a regular face on Buchanan St and at local open mic evenings, slowly building a following on social media while learning her trade. 


In 2016, she released her first EP, ‘You’re the Only One’ recorded at Boombox Studios in Glasgow with highly acclaimed producer Jud Mahoney, who took time to nurture her talent, followed 2 years later with ‘Pause’ their second EP together.


The following year Jodie was approached by ITV’s ‘The Voice’ making it all the way to the blind auditions, but this was not to be her big break. Until this point, music had been a hobby, but the whole experience made her realise how much she truly loved performing and so she focussed all her energies on making it a career. One week later she’d applied to LIPA University (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts) to join their Songwriting & Production course and subsequently moved to Liverpool to study at Sir Paul McCartney’s School there. Her time in the city gave her the opportunity to perform at The Jacaranda, The Pogue Mahone, Zanzibar and the world famous Cavern Club while still busking in the busy shopping streets of Liverpool One.


Her next major highlight came in October 2018 when she supported Rick Astley on the first and last dates his tour, at Glasgow’s Armadillo and Liverpool M&S Bank Arena, in front of an audience of 10,000.


But it wasn’t all about performing, her studies also focussed on production, a side of the industry very few women chose. In 2020, she released two self-produced singles and although covid may have interrupted her studies, it also opened new opportunities in toplining and working on Zoom with artists around the world, as she slowly made a name for herself in the dance music genre. Despite the major disruption to her studies, she completed her degree as a songwriter and music producer with first class honours. 


Having started out as a young singer-songwriter with heavy influences from Ed Sheeran, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Ben Howard, her writing style was now changing throughout her university years. She began toplining on dance tracks, working in different genres like house, techno, electro pop, rap, drum & bass, and in December 2020 her collaboration with DJ duo ‘Nightlapse’ saw their song ‘Reaction’ being signed to Ultra Records in the US, and another with Lonely in the Rain entitled ‘Head Straight’ amassed over 3million streams on Spotify alone.


She is now regularly played on BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM with big support from Jaguar of ‘BBC Introducing Dance’. Summer 2021 saw two of her tracks played at Creamfields Festival, and Yousef remixed her song, ‘The Devils’ Ivy’ with Boy North, going on to play it at his Circus event in the summer of 2021. She continues gigging and was delighted to be invited to open for TEXAS at an exclusive event in Quaglino’s in London.


At 23, she has now made the move to London to continue her musical dream. Thank you so much to all those who have supported her and continue to do so. This is just the beginning….
