‘Remember Me’ is the affecting and epic new single from Jodie Marie’s critically celebrated, Bernard
Butler–produced debut album ‘Mountain Echo’ and is set for release on Monday 29th October 2012.
Aside from gushing praise for her debut album by all quarters of the press, each of Jodie’s singles has
now enjoyed playlist status by BBC Radio 2, including the likes of ‘On the Road’, live favourite ‘I Got You’
and her most recent offering, ‘Like a Runaway’, a duet with acclaimed musician Ed Harcourt. Otherwise,
a hectic live summer has seen Jodie and her band play all across the UK and Europe, including multiple
festivals such as BT London Live in Hyde Park and Secret Garden Party, as well as further touring with
former live accomplice Will Young on his huge, sell–out Forest Tour.
Still only 20 years old, it really has been an incredible 12 months for the soulful singer from Wales, who
is uniquely reaffirming her newly found ‘national hero’ status with a Wales only tour in September and
October (all dates below). Building on this, ‘I Got You’ was recently included in the Western Mail’s ’50
Best Welsh Songs Ever’ feature, and a full hour documentary was released to the S4C channel, highlighting
her story so far. Prestigiously meanwhile, Jodie recently received a commemorative award in her native
Narberth, Pembrokeshire in recognition of her musical achievements, whilst her debut album ‘Mountain
Echo’ has just been named as one of the nominees for the Welsh Music Prize, a ceremony launched last
year by winner Gruff Rhys and his ‘Hotel Shampoo’ album. The ceremony occurs on 17th October in Cardiff.
Discovered by Transgressive Management (the team behind Noisettes, Johnny Flynn, Foals and Two Door
Cinema Club) in 2009 and signed to Verve to relaunch the label in 2010, Jodie Marie has released one of
2012’s most exceptional debuts, marking the release with a string of sell–out headline shows and supports
for Will Young, Ben Howard and Nerina Pallot.
