Into an era of latte's, frappe's and internet hot spots, Jodi Doidge has infused a 60's coffee house vibe, when music was honest and intimate. The sweet and soulful sound of Jodi Doidge can be found where friends gather. Her mellow acoustic styling captures the essence of a time when simple and beautiful music was gently nurtured and shared. Jodi Doidge has shared the same dream that many young girls have of singing and recording their original songs. As a 16 year old teenager, her thoughts flowed onto paper. The chords she played from her guitar wrapped themselves around the words, to fill her bedroom with sound. Jodi worked to overcome her shyness and began to play for friends and family. It wasn't until her 18th year while she was living in Alberta that she took a chance and started playing at open mic nights at various venues in her community. “Open mic nights are great for getting out and meeting other musicians and getting that stage experience,” she says. “It's baby steps.” Since that time, Jodi Doidge has seized many opportunities to share her style of “indie folk with an occasional bluesy, jazzy twist”. Recently she was the feature performer for a number of shows at the Delta Sun Peaks Resort, and has played at the Women In Music Festival organized by the TM Sun Peaks Corporation. She also has played at special events like the Torchlight Fondue nights in Sun Peaks. Since moving to North Vancouver in November of 2007, Jodi has continued to get her music out into the public ear. Jodi also plays the piano and has been known to occasionally pick up the electric guitar. She continues to write songs and looks forward to sharing them with you.
