FRESH: ‘Blue Eyes’ – Jodi Valentin

Jodi Valentin sings about “Blue Eyes”

Jodi Valentin is an American Pop artist, often found singing heartfelt, story-based ballads behind a piano. Although she was born in Brooklyn, New York, she identifies herself as a multi-cultured woman who has traveled the world. While music is her first passion, she’s found joy in learning languages beyond English, and listens to music of other cultures.

While her most obvious influence is Taylor Swift, her current artists in rotation are Lauv and Fletcher and old-time classics like Stevie Wonder, Queen and Elton John. She’s been fortunate enough to work under the thumb of Roger Waters of Pink Floyd during an Internship program at Soundtrack Studios. Her mentors Nick Sansano and Bob Power encouraged her to reach out to big time producers like David Kahne, in which he ended up co-producing her single “The Radio”.

Fortunately, she also sat beside at NYU Clive Davis, where they’d critique each others songwriting. Currently, UK blogs and radio stations have shown tremendous interest in Jodi Valentin, and she will be performing in her first international concert on September 10th through the Sofa Sessions. Daily, her music is getting added to playlists like “Sundays Best” by Celimbo76 and “Indie Music Women.

Jodi new single, “Blue Eyes”, follows on from her other 2020 releases “Too Soon” and “Ghost”. Jodi made her debut in 2015 with the single “For The Movies” and has three more to her name since. At 26 years old, the Manhattan based singer says by her own admission she “Draws from fantasy and romantic relationships to write; mysterious, strong-minded, flirty, and seductive songs”! Let’s hope ol “Blue Eyes” approves…!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
