Emerging musician Jodie Nicholson is a 23-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 picked up airplay from Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2, tastemakers at BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, as well as features for respected blogs and magazines such as Tom Robinson’s Fresh On The Net, NARC. Magazine and Mystic Sons. Live, Jodie has performed across the north for Sofar Sounds, headlined numerous regional venues and supported Cattle & Cane, Baskery, She Drew the Gun for Independent Venue Week and Rob Heron and the Teapad Orchestra.
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.
