Together with American Songwriter, we had the pleasure of interviewing Jodie Nicholson over Zoom video! 

Hotly-tipped British newcomer Jodie Nicholson releases her hypnotic new single ‘Move’ on Friday 18th September 2020.

Produced remotely during lockdown by Tim Bran (London Grammar, Birdy, Halsey, Aurora), Move sees Jodie’s ethereal vocals come to the fore amid a hypnotic and mesmerising soundscape.

Bringing to mind the effortlessly cool electro-indie-pop leanings of The Japanese House, the sparse hushed vocals of Dodie and the haunting synth vibes of Grimes, Move is the perfect soundtrack to a chilled out late summer’s night.

“On the surface, its message is typical of a generic pop song, but as the track’s evolved in its creation, Move has become a powerful symbol for taking a feeling and running with it. It’s been an organic, impulse-driven song from the get-go and in many ways feels like an awakening” says Jodie.

“I never thought that my first time working with a producer would be during a global pandemic. Working remotely with Tim was fascinating. As I recorded vocals, he controlled my computer from the other end of the country, and we streamed the audio from both sides so we could listen together in real-time. It was honestly mind-blowing. I feel very grateful for current technology and Tim’s knowledge” adds Jodie.

In a breakthrough 2020, Jodie has already picked up airplay from Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, BT TV Music and Amazing Radio, as well as numerous live sessions, BBC Sounds playlists and ‘Track of the Week’ accolades from BBC Music Introducing.

With the support of respected tastemakers including Fresh on the Net, Maverick Magazine, Record of the Day, Alexrainbird, Mahogany & Sofar Sounds, Jodie has quickly emerged as one of the UK’s most exciting new artists.

Influenced by the likes of Daughter, Lucy Rose, Bombay Bicycle Club, Rae Morris, Pink Floyd and Laura Marling, Jodie isn’t afraid to experiment, explore and enhance each song’s raw foundations.

Using songwriting to unravel a deeper understanding and sense of self, Jodie’s songwriting sees wistful narratives, delicate melodies and emotive lyrics sit atop deep-rooted themes of melancholy and longing.

Funded by Help Musicians UK’s prestigious ‘Do It Differently’ Award, Move is the first in a series of new releases that Jodie Nicholson will be sharing over the coming months.
