I genuinely do feel quite honored that this next act I'm about to introduce to you has took the time to answer some questions for the site. This artist I speak of, is Jodie Connor. A British pop upstart who had two amazing singles a few years ago, and is finally back with new material to make us all feel happy inside!
Jodie's singles did very well in the charts over here in the UK, and her most popular singles have 4 million & 2 million views respectively. That's quite a few people who are familiar with Jodie's music, and that's why I feel so honored that she took the time to answer some questions for us! So, here we go!
Hey Jodie, could you tell us a bit about who you are and what you do?
I'm a singer songerwriter from Manchester. I co wrote and vocalled the number 1 single "Good Times" for Rolldeep, I've worked with Wiley, Tinchy Styder, Busta Rhymes, Stylo G etc. I'm signed to 3beat/universal records.
How would you describe your sound?
I think its a commercial sound. I've recently been experimenting in the studio and I'm currently working on reggae influenced music. I'm really enjoying it and can't wait for everyone to hear the new direction I'm going in.
Who would you compare yourself to in the industry right now?
Hopefully no one. I'd like to think I'm going in my own lane and just doing me.
So, what can people expect if they come down to one of your shows?
My shows are fun. You get to see a different side of me, the loud me that not many people witness. I really enjoy being on stage.
What's your favourite song you have written?
I have recently written a song about a very special little boy who's extremely close to me. I spent 4 years nursing him through cancer and 9months in isolation with him while he went through a bone marrow transplant. It broke my heart and it wasn't an easy subject to talk about for awhile, but I've finally found the right words to express it and I recorded it last month.
And finally where can your fans (or new fans) find you?

I'd like to thank Jodie for taking the time to answer these questions!
Well, there you go. One of my favourite popstars of the past few years has just been interviewed for Popshade. That's a big achievement for me. So, now, what you guys have to do, is make her even more famous!
Go check her out on all those links she gave you above, buy her new single "Talk (feat. Stylo G)" on iTunes, and make sure to tell all your friends about her! Okay? Good!
