Emerging musician Jodie Nicholson is a 24-year-old singer/songwriter 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. Jodie self-released her debut album 'Golden Hour' in September 2019.
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, Maverick Magazine, AlexRainBird, NARC. Magazine, Ear To The Ground, York Calling, LeFutureWave, Give It A Spin and Mystic Sons, to name but a few.
With musical influences including Tori Amos, Laura Marling, Daughter, Pink Floyd, Lucy Rose and The Staves, Jodie pairs her melodic and angelic vocals with soft piano or acoustic guitar. She’s 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.
