Jodie Marie - LIVE - Supporting Ben Howard & Ed Harcourt
Jodie Marie Announces December shows XFM X-Posure gig with Ben Howard & shows with Ed Harcourt
Following Jodie’s spellbinding, September residency at St Pancras Old Church – where she was joined by Ed Harcourt and a string quartet – and her recent support for Will Young on his latest UK tour; Jodie Marie will close 2011 with three special shows supporting Ben Howard for an XFM X-Posure gig (broadcast live on John Kennedy’s XFM show) and two shows supporting Ed Harcourt.
Signed to Decca to relaunch the Verve label, Jodie Marie follows a strong lineage of artists - from Nina Simone and Billie Holliday to the Velvet Underground - and is set to transcend trends and convention with her debut album (produced by Bernard Butler and Ed Harcourt) that is due out in March 2012. Discovered by Transgressive Management (the team behind Johnny Flynn, Foals and The Noisettes) when Toby L’s father was on a trip back to his hometown in Wales. Speaking about his son’s involvement in the music industry over breakfast, he was instructed by the landlady to check out the local plumber’s daughter’s music.
