Jodie H. Dunn is a young, but supremely talented singer-songwriter hailing from Swindon who uses her life experience as material for her powerful and heartfelt songs.
Having been bullied for long periods of her teenage years at school, growing up wasn’t easy for Jodie. Also, when she made her first foray into the music industry, she encountered a shady producer/manager who ended up trying to sue her family over a contract dispute. You’d think things like this would put Jodie off music all together, but for her, it was always a welcome escape where she could truly express her feelings.
Since then, Jodie has progressed her music and songwriting in leaps and bounds, now releasing her first professionally produced track, ‘I Belong In Hell’, along with the help of Andy Whitmore at Greystoke Studios.
Consequently, ‘I Belong In Hell’ is a beautifully produced track that allows Jodie’s remarkable vocals to steal the limelight. The bass is looming, the drum beat is strong and booming, yet neither take away anything from Jodie’s voice and the meaning behind her well-crafted lyricism. In addition to that, there is a great little piano hook that is subtle and intermittent, but sets the tone at the beginning of the song perfectly.
It’s also refreshing to hear a different pop style in this day and age; we’re so accustomed to the status quo of r’n’b/ dance infused pop that has dominated the genre in recent years, but Jodie’s brand of soulful, slightly dark, yet enchanting pop brings something else to the table entirely.
So, if you’re fed up of the conveyor belt material you hear everyday on the radio, then definitely give Jodie H. Dunn’s ‘I Belong In Hell’ a listen. You won’t be disappointed.
