Jodie-Joy is a fiercely passionate independent soul/pop artist. She loves making music, her man and long walks on the beach (although not necessarily in that order). Mainly she just loves singing the hell out of songs that grab you by the soul and make you feel alive. JJ has infectious personality, powerful vocal range has seen her entertaining professionally for more than 2 decades. As a singer/songwriter from a young age, working with the likes of Daniel Jones (Savage Garden), Hayden Bell (Veronicas), Paul Mac, Phil Burton (Human Nature) and a professional entertainer by age 12, coached by Donald Smith OBE, Greta Elkins and gaining her powerful vocal chops from operatic tenor father Robin Donald Smith, Jodie-Joy’s career has taken her from one end of the music industry to the other. She’s recorded albums with renowned record labels like Columbia records, understudied her first professional musical theatre lead role aged 19 in Merry Widow, toured internationally as lead singer/dancer in various stage shows, co-written original music with A-list writers in Sweden and UK and performed in everything from national TV appearances (Logie Awards, Good News Week, Popstars top 10 Finalist) to producing her own intimate cabaret shows. JJ has had airplay in Australia and internationally and when not performing her originals with her band \'JJ & The Radio Souls\' she can usually be found creating corporate stage shows. Popular resident soloist at various 5 star venues from Brisbane to Gold Coast, Jodie is no stranger to the main arena stage either touring Australia, New Zealand and annual show festivals like Royal Sydney Show, NSW Salt Village Arts festival, Speed on tweed festival, Brisbane Ekka and Gold Coast Show. Aside from founding her own show production company and running a thriving singing school MMC, Jodie-Joy recently embarked upon her biggest venture yet, 2 month tour performing in USA, then recording her EP independent release with two time Grammy award winning producer Marc Swersky (Hilary Duff, Joe Cocker, Natalie Cole) whilst filming TV music documentary \'Story of the independent artist\'. Upon her return to Australia she released music video single \'Naked\' and continues to carve her own path in soul and popular music with her 2015 EP release.
