ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bold. Authentic. And definitely different. Three qualities an artist needs to stand out in today’s mercurial music biz climate. New York City-based singer-songwriter Jodi Good embodies these virtues, and adds in a heartfelt commitment to positive messaging and breathtaking musical talent. Her is story is of a homegrown artist who, by staying true to her eccentricities, released a dazzling debut EP, Definitely Different, and attracted some impressive high-profile support.

“Since I was 4, I wanted to be a singer. I was destined to do this,” New York City-based singer-songwriter Jodi Good says. But it took her many years of introspective searching to find her fate. As a child, she already had a richly soulful voice and prodigious songwriting talents, but she often felt too insecure to share her gifts. “At one point I just realized, if I really want to sing, I have to own the title and be ready to sing for anyone,” she says.

Definitely Different is a vibrant combination of vulnerable and uplifting lyrics with a mesmerizing melodic sense. It is empowering pop, and Jodi proudly wears the title “Definitely Different.” It represents the courage she’s had to overcome her paralyzing shyness and her deep-seated insecurities. “My message is ‘accept your differences, then love them,’" she says.

Growing up, Jodi found solace in writing poetry and singing, and by 11, had put these passions together and emerged a gifted songwriter. She flourished at a performing arts high school, and later earned a scholarship from prestigious Berklee School Of Music. After an enriching two-year study at Berklee, she moved to Manhattan to pursue a career as a professional musician. Since then, Jodi has performed at the esteemed Sundance Festival, and based on the strength of her performance there, was invited to play an additional exclusive showcase. Recently, CMJ featured Jodi in her own blue ribbon artist-entrepreneur panel called "Going At It Alone.”

Currently, esteemed technology company Hewlett-Packard is featuring Jodi in a video about indie music artists. The company handpicked her to take part in documenting the experiences of making a major-label quality record as an independent artist, and what it takes to get traction in today’s independent music climate. Acclaimed online gaming community STEAMpowered.com also recently recognized Jodi’s astounding artistry, tapping her to recreate the song “I Want You Gone” for one of their major online promotions.

“I think the key to this approach is only working with companies and people that fit in with your whole MO – it’s not going to be beneficial for anyone if it’s not genuine to your heart and soul,” she explains. “It’s all about being true to yourself and keeping the ball rolling forward with what you have in front of you.”

There is a euphoric “it’s going to be alright” feeling that courses through Definitely Different. The buoyant leadoff single “Definitely Different” is emboldening because of its powerful candor, humor, and sweet self-acceptance. “That song encompasses who I am, all my idiosyncrasies. It is an autobiography in the form of a song." Jodi says. “It’s about embracing being different. Being different often has a negative connotation, but it’s not negative at all, it’s beautiful.”

Seasoned producer/songwriter/mixer and former A&R Rep at Capitol and Elektra Records Jimmy Landry produced the album, helping Jodi craft a wonderfully expansive EP that expresses the depth and diversity of her artistry. “I have heard a lot of voices in my career of developing artists, and Jodi had an element that I had never heard before,” Landry says. “She resonates the soul of a heartfelt elder, but also has the character of youthfulness.” The stunning ballad “Stranger To Me” showcases Jodi’s transcendent musicality. Here, her vocals are achingly gorgeous, with soulfully subtle phrasing and soaring emotionality. The track is hauntingly beautiful with lush instrumentation tastefully framing the authentic acoustic core of the composition.

It’s been an awe-inspiring journey. “I’ve grown more in the last year than I have in my previous 22," Jodi says. With a sincere message, and an undeniably catchy debut, Jodi is poised for a successful career. “I want to bring out the good heart in everyone,“ she says. “That means everything to me.”
