New Gig in Narberth!

Hello!!

Thank you everyone who's bought the album so far, I'm honoured! I've been having such lovely feedback about it, thank you so much! If you'd like to buy the album, there are links in the "Shop" section on this very website =) !

I can't wait to play my London album launch in The Islington on Tuesday (4th August), it's been quite some time since I last played a full band gig in London! I hope to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones too. Come say hello! If you'd like to reserve tickets (as it's completely free!) you still can, here:

TICKETS

On another note, something which is pretty exciting for me - I'm very pleased to announce that I'll be playing a full band album launch gig on Friday the 18th September in my hometown of Narberth in the Queens Hall, Pembrokeshire!! 

I really love playing at home, meeting up with people I haven't seen in a long time, it always feels more like a party than a gig! Thanks to Span in Narberth for promoting the gig, I love working with you guys and I can't wait until September to work with you all again, you're very good to me!

So, if you can't make the London show this coming Tuesday, and you'd like to come to an album launch gig of mine, make sure you book your tickets for the Queens Hall in Pembrokeshire for the 18th September NOW!! If you're from away, Pembrokeshire is stunning so you can make a holiday or a mini break out of it too! I'll even give you some suggestions on the night of places to visit in the area if you'd like!

You can buy tickets to my hometown album launch gig here:

I look forward to seeing you!

Peace.

Lots of love,

‘Trouble in Mind’ Bonus Tracks

Hello!

Very excited that it's only a couple of days left before the release of my second album, "Trouble In Mind". Available to pre order now on the shop section (below). 

You'll see that there is an option to buy not only the physical copy of the album but also a digital version too. The digital version, "Trouble In Mind (Deluxe Edition)", comes with 4 extra tunes for you to sink your teeth into.

I'd now like to tell you a little bit about the bonus tracks on the Deluxe Edition of the album. Firstly, there's "True Colours", the classic song made famous by Cyndi Lauper - written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly. I had a lot of fun recording this one - it really is a beautifully written song. I decided to sing it a while back to try out for a piece of advert music. I loved it so much that I thought I'd share it with you lovely people on my second album instead. I spent such a long time away writing for this album since the release of my last record 'Mountain Echo', that I wanted to share with you exactly what I've been up to, covers and other original tracks that I'd written in that time. It's the least I could do in return for your patience and constant support. 

The next 3 songs on the deluxe edition were written by myself. Starting with "Mama Told Me". I wrote this one a while ago, having been listening to a lot of 60s type records like Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin, Fontella Bass, and some Northern Soul albums. I wanted to write a tune that was poppy but in a 60's style. We had so much fun recording this at StudiOwz in Pembrokeshire with a bunch of truly talented people. "Mama Told Me" very nearly made it on to the actual album but I decided to save it for the bonus tracks instead for those of you that go searching for other music, it's almost like our little secret.

"Losing You" was recorded at Mwnci Studios in Hebron, West Wales. The lovely Jimmy Brewer played guitar on it and I played a stunning Bechstein Boudoir Grand piano. We did it in one take in front of a lovely log burner in the middle of a very chilly November. *Brrr!* We only spent a day in Mwnci Studios, laying down all the piano tracks that needed doing on the rest of the album, like "Reason To Believe" & "I Miss You". This track was one that felt really intense and special to me, so much so that I couldn't not include it in some way or another on the album. 

Finally, the final track of the Deluxe Edition is a song called "Drinkin'". It's another song that I wrote with the lovely Daniel John Montagu Smith (guitarist of the Noisettes) like the title track of the album, "Trouble In Mind". We wrote this in the same rehearsal space where we wrote "Trouble In Mind". It was a tiny, cramped rehearsal room. We had 30 minutes spare so we decided to write another blues tune - very much along the same lines as the title track but this one using a gorgeous resonator guitar and slide. Dan and I wrote it super fast and had a right laugh in the process! So…CHEERS!! 

You can have a cheeky listen to "Mama Told Me" - one of the Deluxe Edition tunes NOW on SoundCloud pre album release, here:

Mama Told Me

Enjoy! 

Peace.

Lots of Love,

A Cottage In France

Hello everyone!

I want to take a moment to share with you the cottage I stayed in in Normandy, France where I wrote quite a big chunk of my new album, "Trouble In Mind". Massive thanks to Tim & family for your trust and generosity in letting me stay there.

I spent 3 weeks in the cottage in France. I drove out in my van in early January a year or so ago with two very close friends of mine. They stayed for a week with me, wondering around the very sweet, but secluded surrounding areas. At the end of the week, I dropped my friends off at Bernay train station heading back to London, having had a bit of a break together. The following 2 weeks were spent alone in the cottage with my small recording set up, my Wurlitzer electric piano, acoustic guitar, pen, paper and my thoughts.

I took this photo before the heavy snow came in and blocked me in for a week! Brrrrr! I'm not joking, the snow was literally coming in through the gap under the door into the kitchen. It was such an amazing experience.

I specifically remember writing the closing track of the album, "Later Than You Think" in the living room (after a few lovely glasses of vino rouge!) till the sun rose the next morning.

With no internet, phone reception, or very good French (not many people spoke English there either), I wrote letters to my family and watched Pink Panther to keep me sane. Although it was unbearably lonely at times, I had been craving the exact solace I was experiencing at that moment. Looking back, I am so thankful that I stuck it out on my own, writing lots of these new songs and being able to share this album with you all now. 

So… the release of my album on the 24th of July is getting closer and closer - I'm pretty nervous about revealing the record to you all, baring my soul after such a long time since "Mountain Echo" was released in 2012. But I'm also so excited and can't wait to let it go, I've been holding on to these feelings and songs for far too long. I hope you enjoy.

Peace.

Lots of love,

Jodie Marie xxx

Welcome to my new website!

Hello everyone!!

Really excited to be releasing my second album! It's been a long time coming, but I'm nearly there now. I can finally share it with you all!

As I'm sure you've read above, my second album, "Trouble In Mind" will be released on the 24th July 2015. You can pre order it now (both physical and download versions). There is also a cheeky deluxe version on iTunes (download only) with a few extra songs on it for you.

I will be playing some live dates too, so please keep an eye out for them on the GIG section of my website! It would be lovely to see some familiar faces again!...and of course, see some new ones!

I'm really looking forward to sharing my hard work over the past few years with you…and don't worry I'm already starting to write album no. 3, so it shouldn't be half as long a wait as this album was!

Peace. Lots of love,
