Reliably informed



Released: 12.07.24






Quirky and effervescent, Odie Leigh’s debut album begins with a single intake of breath – and that’s what you’ll need before you start your first listen. It’s a ten-track adventure of fiery folk with a generous helping of fun – the harmonies are flooring, the lyrics are brutal and the choices are surprising and endlessly satisfying.

Unexpectedly born into music through a bet with her friends, Lousiana-born Odie continues to prove every point and win every battle in this powerful debut. It’s a tale of want and infatuation, tinted by the worry that comes with those properties, and each song has soul – delivered by Odie’s strong and grounded voice, fuelled by pure emotion and, at times, fury. Her friends must be glad they lost that bet.
