It’s been a rather interesting couple of years for Hurworth-on-Tees-based solo artist Jodie Nicholson. She’s been blazing one hell of a trail which has seen her supporting the likes of Emeli Sande, The Futureheads and Bernard Butler; she’s been the very first artist to grace the stage at Sunderland’s shiny new venue The Fire Station; and she’s becoming a fixture on festival line-ups such as The Great Escape, Live at Leeds and Cambridge Folk Festival.

It’s quite the CV, but even a casual dive into her discography makes clear why, and it’s no surprise that her music has managed to find a home on Radio 1, Radio 2 and Radio 6Music (which is, as far as I’m concerned, quite the guarantee of versatility!) Off the back of this tremendous wave of momentum, Jodie is undertaking a five-date tour of the North East. “I’m playing a run of intimate shows in December with my wonderful band in some of our fave North East venues.” She says. “Expect new songs, the usual favourites and something a lil’ more stripped-back. It feels like the perfect way to round off this year.”

Jodie is supported on all dates by fellow solo singer-songwriter Joe Ramsay, whose relatable songs and indie folk vibes are also gaining serious acclaim.

Jodie Nicholson and Joe Ramsey play Durham’s Claypath Deli (3rd December), Middlesbrough’s Off The Ground (10th December) The Waiting Room, Eaglescliffe (11th December), The Forum Music Centre in Darlington (14th December) and Bobik’s in Newcastle (17th December).
