Welsh singer Jodie Marie will visit Celtic Music Radio on Thursday 24 November during the Homward Bound programme.
Raised in Narberth, Pembrokeshire, Wales, Jodie was isolated and disinterested in the pop charts. She was brought up on a diet of blues and Bonnie Raitt, leading her to a soulful and genuine sound.
Whilst the quality and substance of Jodie’s songs bring to mind greats such as Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Tim Buckley, her style is truly original and the emotional depth of her writing belies her mere 20 years of age.
‘On The Road’ will be Jodie’s first single on the classic Verve label. A sauntering, sun-kissed verse, gives little indication of the point at 55 seconds in when Jodie’s voice rips into the chorus – a gutsy, minor-key soul number – and in that instant something quite extraordinary happens as a new vocal talent lays down her marker with devastating effect. Find out more when 20 year old Jodie is live in studio 1 at Celtic Music Radio on Thursday afternoon.
Homeward Bound, Thursday 24 November from 4.00pm.
