Emerging artist Jodie Nicholson is a 24-year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the village of Hurworth-on-Tees, on the outskirts of Darlington in the north east of England.
Jodie’s organic approach to songwriting sees delicate melodies and emotive lyrics sit atop deep-rooted themes of melancholy and longing. Inspired by personal experiences and relationships, her music portrays heartfelt narratives of love, loss and healing.
Her ethereal tracks have already picked up airplay from Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6 Music, BBC Introducing, BT TV Music and Amazing Radio, as well as respected tastemakers including Tom Robinson’s Fresh On The Net, Record of the Day, American Songwriter, Maverick Magazine, AlexRainBird, AudioFemme, NARC. Magazine, Black Plastic, Ear To The Ground, York Calling, LeFutureWave, Give It A Spin and Mystic Sons, to name but a few.
In a breakthrough 2020, Jodie has been awarded funding from both Help Musicians ‘Do It Differently’ and PRS Foundation ‘Women Make Music’. Latest single ‘Move’ was produced by Tim Bran (London Grammar, Aurora, Halsey) and signalled an ambitious statement of intent for the future.
Live, Jodie has performed across the north for Sofar Sounds, as well as headlining numerous regional venues and supporting the likes of She Drew The Gun, Cattle & Cane and Baskery at sold-out shows.
With musical influences including Tori Amos, Laura Marling, Bombay Bicycle Club, Daughter, Pink Floyd, Rae Morris, Lucy Rose and The Staves, Jodie is not afraid to experiment and build upon each song’s raw foundations of guitar/piano and vocals, really bringing her home-spun recordings to life through layered harmonies, strings, drums and additional instrumentation.
