Jodie Marie Interview on BB Skone's Show - PureWestRadio!
Thank you so much for also making me Artist Of The Week!
BB's pick for Artist of the Week on Pure West Radio is Jodie Marie. She'll be chatting to BB and introducing some of her new songs on his show @7pm on Sunday 14th February then her music will be played on loads of other shows throughout the following week. Jodie Marie, originally from Narberth and now living in Clarbeston, released her eagerly awaited third album, The Answer, this week. It is a stunning record, crafted with her partner Owain Fleetwood Jenkins in the chapel they have lovingly restored as a recording studio, using her gigging band – Jimmy Brewer (guitar), Jack Beddis (drums) and Tom Sinnett (bass) and others – it is her finest record yet, the soul and passion of the music positively leaping out of the grooves (the record is available on vinyl). Jodie is influenced by strong female voices of the past – from the classic ‘60s girl groups to the solo work of the likes of Aretha Franklin and Lesley Gore – but is very much her own woman. Her voice has never sounded so good and she is aided and abetted by the StudiOwz house band – not for nothing have they been compared with the Muscle Shoals collective, responsible for much of the best soul, rock, and pop that came out of the American south. Together Jodie and the band create a music that is simultaneously retro and contemporary, and a joy to listen to.
Jodie will also be livestreaming at the Queens Hall Narberth from 7pm on Friday 19th February performing the new songs plus a few of her classics.
