Hailing from Teesside, and dealing in rich, evocative songwriting that threads together such disparate influences as Warpaint, Laura Marling and her dad’s prog rock collection, Jodie Nicholson is a refreshing addition to the wave of hugely talented emerging artists in the region.

After years of building momentum locally, Jodie is embarking on a national tour (her first with a full live band) which takes in Stockton’s Georgian Theatre on Saturday 5th February and Newcastle’s Cluny 2 on Saturday 12th, fresh from the release of her four track EP Can’t Escape The Feeling. Released with the support of the PRSF’s Women Make Music initiative, Jodie considers Can’t Escape… to be an exploration of “what it means to feel alone in a familiar world” with the brooding atmosphere of Be Back Soon and the intricate fingerpicked melodies of Second Sun showcasing her brilliant penchant for keenly progressive song structures and profoundly moving song-writing. The EP is served by the intricate and up-close production from Tim Bran (who has previously worked with the likes of Aurora, London Grammar and Rae Morris). It’s a confident statement of intent from an artist who has a singular approach to the craft, and will make for a compelling experience live.

Jodie Nicholson plays The Georgian Theatre, Stockton on Saturday 5th and The Cluny 2, Newcastle on Saturday 12th February.
