Discovered by her pre-school teacher singing in the bathroom, Jodi Valentin was destined for a career in music from a young age. In New York, she grew up listening to Motown and R&B. A graduate of New York University alongside powerhouse vocalists Maggie Rogers, Fletcher, and Emily Warren, she hopes her music can inspire women to be confident in themselves. In fact, her latest single “Blue Eyes” is about being proud of her appearance. Written about a boy who told her he only wanted to date a blonde, she wanted others in a similar situation to be proud of their features and not change for others. Taking to Instagram saying, "If you’ve ever dated someone who wanted you to be just a version of yourself with them... who wanted you to change to be “right” for them... someone who focused on who you could be instead of who you are.... this song is for you."
Now living in Philadelphia, Jodi loves performing at the more intimate venues and interacting with the audience - teaching them to sing along to her songs. Moving forward, Jodi is set to release her debut EP “Hindsight” this year. Her goal is to hear her music in movies and tv. She also dreams of securing a record deal.
