"Her lovely voice recalls Natalie Merchant, but the material she sings is punchier -- she has a searching songwriting style that harks back to old Tom Waits and Rickie Lee Jones records." - listen.com

Biography

With influences that range from Tom Waits to Joni Mitchell, singer/songwriter Jodi Sheeler's self-titled debut is an eclectic blend of folk, rock and pop. Jodi's deep soulful voice, comparable to PJ Harvey, Ani DiFranco and Lucinda Williams, and bittersweet lyrics paint vivid pictures of city life, childhood friendship and the elusiveness of love. Jodi was born in Italy and raised on U.S. military bases in Germany. The daughter of a music teacher, Jodi's interest in the performing arts began as a little girl trailing behind her father to the high school musical rehearsals. After college, Jodi moved to New York City, where she began singing and writing in earnest. Learning to craft songs and play guitar in small coffee houses, she chipped away at building an audience that is now at capacity at such established New York venues as CBGB's Gallery and The Bitter End.
