Jamie Lawson Support Show!

Hello!

It's been a while since I wrote on my website blog - my biggest apologies!

 

BUT!!...I have some exciting news - I think a few of you may have already seen this on my Instagram, Twitter & Facebook pages. 

I have been asked to support the incredibly talented, Ivor Novello Award Nominee, Jamie Lawson on the 16th July 2016 in Pembroke Castle, Pembrokeshire. It's such a beautiful space and I am honoured to support such a fantastic artist in my own home county!

I believe you can still get tickets for the event so go check out my "Gigs" section on my website to purchase tickets and also check out other dates that I'm playing over the coming months!

Exciting times!

 

Lots of Love,

New Video For ‘If We Try’!

Hello!!

 

I'm very excited to announce that Vevo have premiered my next single, "If We Try" on YouTube. Thank You! 

 

You can check out a live solo version of the song here:

If We Try

 

I decided to film a stripped back, laid back version of this song to show you exactly how it was written - just me and some keys. 

 

I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by a big group of friends that I love and trust while making this album, not only on the band front, the recording at StudiOwz but also the filming of this very video. I had the pleasure of working with two fantastic videographers/photographers who are from my home county of Pembrokeshire, Wales. Doug Evens and Dean Harris were the two geniuses that filmed this video and I couldn't be happier. I get very shy in front of a camera when filming, but these guys totally made me feel at ease and I can't wait to work with them much more in the future. Go check them out! We filmed the live session at StudiOwz recording studio, where I feel most at home and for me, where all the magic happens. 

 

Check out their work:


Doug Evens

 

Dean Harries

Pembrokeshire is a very creative place, but I feel like I've hit the jackpot with this community of people who have worked on my album and videos. So this is just a massive thank you to those lovely souls who have worked so hard!

 

Go check it out and I hope you all enjoy!

 

Lots of Love,

Jodie Marie

Lively Summer

Hello!!

 

Sorry, it's been a little while since I last updated my blog on here. I've been playing lots of live gigs lately, driving around the country from venue to venue - it's been amazing. It's such a great feeling being back on the road again!

 

After playing my album launch gig in the Islington in London, I've been out and about playing in the AberJazz festival in Fishguard, The Big Cwtch Festival in Crugybar, I played a full band gig in Mathry, Pembrokeshire in aid of an amazing charity called "Yes To Life". 

 

I've recently driven from the Glee Club in Birmingham to the Cottiers Theatre in Glasgow to the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, finally to the Union Chapel in London in 4 days, then back to Pembrokeshire after having been on an incredible tour supporting the lovely Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World on his solo tour. The venues were absolutely stunning as well as the company! It was such a luxury playing to jam packed rooms every night on this tour especially for the support artist. Thanks for being such lovely audiences! I want to go back!! I want to give a special thanks to Jim and Paul on the tour, as well as all the promotors. It really was lush! Also a massive thanks to Owain travelling all that way with me! Sam & Emily for putting us up in Birmingham. Mike & Katie for putting us up in Glasgow. Jo & Claire for putting up with us time and time again in London. Managed to stay in an awesome hotel in Manchester too called the Victoria Warehouse, check it out!

 

So…the next big thing for me is my album launch in my hometown of Narberth, Pembrokeshire - THIS FRIDAY!!! (18th September). I'm so excited to playing the Queens Hall venue again, it's a fantastic space and Span are brilliant at organising gigs there! With support from two fantastic musicians and good friends of mine, Matthew Frederick and Ben Mason. I can't say how much you need to come check these guys out. It would be so lovely to see faces from home again as well as some new ones too - I can't wait!!

 

If you want to buy tickets, you can here:

On another note, amongst all of that, I've been writing new tunes too for album number 3, exciting times!! Watch this space...

 

Lots of Love,

Peace,

Jodie Marie xxx

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!

‘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, 
Jodie Marie xxx
