The girl on the verge of a big breakthrough has been singing now for over 10 years and has blessed the ears of many a star already. Having sung for the likes of Sean Penn, David Duchovny, Luke Wilson, Courtney Taylor (Dandy Warhols), Michael Chavez (John Mayer), Steve Lukather (Toto), and Miguel Ferrer, she always leaves a lasting impression. Having spent the last year with months in both New York and LA, writing and gigging, it looks as though things are starting to heat up around this native Canadian.
Having just completed production on her new 3 song demo, Jody is in the market for the right record deal. Her new material is gorgeous and strong, with relatable themes and addictive sounds. Her voice is amazing and her songwriting gets better with every track. Jody is also known for her work with a Delerium type project called Balligomingo. The first single off their debut album called "Purify", co-written and sung by Jody, was remixed by the Icelandic group Gus Gus and hit the Billboard Breakout Charts at Number 3. The most recent remix of the track by Gabriel Dresden, found on the European Release of Balligomingo's 'Beneath the Surface', has a video out on regular rotation in Australia and the UK.
Jody first started singing at an open mic. She closed her eyes, opened her voice, and silenced the room. From there it was game on, she picked up a guitar and started writing her own songs. Hitting the studio over the years, and releasing 2 ep's, it was finally time for a full length CD. Enlisting the help of talented Canadians such as Stefan Sigerson (production), Vik Levak (Engineer/Mixing), and Todd Simko (Mixing), she released 'Star' to great reviews. This 9 song disc features the tracks 'Eden' and 'Passionland'. Catchy melodic tunes, with great lyrics and vibe. 'Star' has received airplay on CJay 92 in Calgary as well as the University stations in Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton.
Having spent many years in Vancouver, Canada, getting to know the scene and other great musicians, Jody found herself sharing the stage with the likes of Art Bergman, Ron Sexsmith, Jim Cuddy, Mark Browning (OX), Damn the Diva, Chic P, Deadman, and Kevin House. She's toured extensively, playing solo shows all across Canada and the United States as well as a few shows in Europe. As one of the two vocalists chosen to front Balligomingo for their live show, she also performed coast to coast across the US opening for Gus Gus, sexy tour bus and all. With years of improv training and stage time at Loose Moose Theatre, and Second City, Jody is prepared for anything on stage. Her presence is captivating and electric, and with a voice that beds down with the shivers under your skin, she's fantastic to catch live. Having recorded with long time collaborator Vik Levak, Jody's latest recording, 'Hollywood Demo' is gaining buzz already. Her new material, the results of a songwriter maturing and tasting life, is bound to touch people and make them think, and then...

"I had the pleasure recently, to spend some time at a beautiful beach on the Atlantic ocean. Early every morning, I would just walk along the shore, admiring things like dolphins and pelicans while I searched for that rare seashell, complete and undamaged by nature. It occurred to me then, that there are musicians in this world very much like these rare, lovely seashells, just waiting to be found. Jody Quine is one such rarity, her music exudes quality, it amazes me that she has yet to become a household name. Her music consists of powerful, pop-friendly ballads, with an energy and freshness that fixates your attention immediately. Nature has certainly blessed this artist with wonderful talent"
Jody Quine was interviewed by Wally - June 2004 -
(30 June 2002) Canadian folk/rock chanteuse Jody Quine is definitely an artist worth keeping an eye on. Although known for her vocal contributions to Garrett Schwarz's Balligomingo project on the songs "Purify" and "Privilege," Jody Quine's solo release, Star demonstrates that Jody is both a gifted and passionate singer and songwriter.
According to her website, Jody first discovered her calling as a vocalist when she stepped up to an open mic to perform lead vocals in front of a live audience. Thereafter, Jody spent several years in Vancouver and Toronto developing her guitar-playing and songwriting abilities. Jody has also studied acting and performed in numerous stage and theatre productions as well as travelled through the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
Each track on Star is worthy of mention and unique in its own right--neverthless, the following songs are particularly noteworthy: "Don't Remind" me exudes a k.d. lang-influenced langorousness that is simultaneously smart and sexy. By using dubbed harmonies, Jody captures the vision of a honey-laden afternoon in the sun. The lush and melancholy "Astounded" is a beautiful folksy piece; acoustic guitars caress Jody's pure and intimate voicings. This one could very well be a hit if it received wide play.
That sense of rural decay and night-hidden danger so perfectly captured by many Cowboy Junkies songs is recreated in the song "Lone Wolf." A mesmerizing guitar plays an almost lullaby-ish lead that continuously circles while Jody's voice weaves a sense of regret and lonliness.
Sarah McLachlan could have easily penned the noirish "Superman" with its groovy organ and string tracks and laid-back funky percussion. A highly impressive debut, "Star" announces the arrival of a new voice that would fit comfortably in that Canadian panoply of female singer/songwriters which also includes Sarah McLachlan, Tara MacLean, Mae Moore and k.d. lang. With a powerful and genuinely lovely voice, penetrating lyrics, and compelling music, Jody Quine is no doubt headed for big things. We enthusiastically recommend "Star" and eagerly await Jody's next album.--Justin Elswick
