Jodie Marie announces one-off gig – 18th May 2013
I’m pleased to say that I will be playing with Jodie Marie again in May, on a great gig in an intimate music venue called The Parrot in Carmarthen. I’m really excited about it, to play those songs with the guys again will be great fun, and hopefully the venue will be rammed! I’ve missed gigging with Jodie, Jimmy and Dan (and having Owain on sound)……the last thing we did was December, so I’m chomping at the bit to get back out there.
In case you don’t know much about Jodie, here’s the blurb for the gig:
A preternaturally gifted singer-songwriter with an elegant yet piercing light-blues touch, she might be the third point in a triangle formed by Joan Baez and Carole King. Or she might be her own woman, a young artist who has spent the four years since her Big Break not chasing a pot of record company gold but working in the studio shadows, working with some of the best in the business, honing her songwriting craft.
Cool comparisons, if you asked me, but she really does have something special of her own too. And having recorded some of her demos for her second album, I think she has progressed massively, and I’m really excited for her. And for me, selfishly, ’cause I get to play her stuff!
Support will be a Carmarthenshire local, a young singer-songwriter called Charli Bicknell. And she’s good! I first heard her up at StudiOwz, just after she’d recorded there, and her single “Pirate Heart” sounded insane……..great textures, contours and lyrics, and a brilliant voice as well. I’m looking forward to hearing her as much as I am playing the gig. It should be a great night!
Tickets: £8 advance, £10 on the door. Available from: The Parrot – 01267 236012
