Jodie Marie has a more interesting origin story than most. A few years ago, the father of Transgressive Records head Tony L. (who discovered Two Door Cinema Club, the Noisettes and more) was staying in a small Welsh bed and breakfast. A landlady overheard him talking about his music-biz son and said he had to hear the 16-year daughter of a local plumber. The landlady badgered him into passing a demo along to his son and now that plumber’s daughter has a label deal and quickly-growing following.
She just released a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young” that showcases her talent. The acoustic track benefits from some supple drumming and, of course, her gorgeous vocals. Stream it below and download another recent cover she did, of Joan Baez’s version of “Silver Dagger.”
