JODI GOOD Releases New EP Definitely Different!
Bold. Authentic. And definitely different. Three qualities an artist needs to stand out in today's mercurial music biz climate and New York City-based singer-songwriter Jodi Good embodies these virtues.
Jodi releases her debut EP, Definitely Different today, July 30th and will celebrate the release at Pianos in NYC tonight. The new EP is now available to stream on MSN Music (http://on-msn.com/QnbIPC) and on Spotify (http://bit.ly/JGspotify). The EP is now available on iTunes, here: http://bit.ly/DefinitelyDifferent.

With a musical style best described as "empowering pop," a richly soulful voice, and songwriting talents well beyond her 22-years, Jodi is already taking the scene by storm. The new 5-track EP is a vibrant combination of vulnerable and uplifting lyrics with a mesmerizing melodic sense.
Jodi teamed up with NYC-based producer/songwriter/mixer Jimmy Landry (former A&R rep at Capitol and Elektra Records) to produce the album. Landry and Jodi's combined efforts result in a wonderfully expansive EP that expresses the depth and diversity of Jodi's artistry.
Definitely Different is a title Jodi proudly wears. It represents the courage she's had to overcome her paralyzing shyness and her deep-seated insecurities. "My message is 'accept your differences, then love them,'" she says.
While this is Jodi's first EP, she is far from a stranger to the music industry. She was selected to perform during the esteemed Sundance Film Festival in 2013 and based on the strength of her first performance there, was invited to play additional exclusive showcases.
She was also selected to be featured on a coveted CMJ Music Marathon artist-entrepreneur panel in 2012 entitled "Going At It Alone."
Jodi's passion for singing began at a ripe age of 4. Growing up, Jodi found solace in writing poetry and singing, and by 11, had put these passions together and emerged an innately gifted songwriter. She flourished at a performing arts high school, and later, earned a scholarship from Berklee College Of Music.
"When I got it in, I took it as a sign that maybe I really was 'good enough'" she says. After an enriching two-year study at Berklee, she moved back home, to Long Island, before making the brave step to move to Manhattan to pursue a career as a professional musician.
There is a euphoric "it's going to be alright" feeling that courses through Definitely Different. The buoyant leadoff single "Definitely Different" is emboldening because of its powerful candor, humor, and sweet self-acceptance. "That song encompasses who I am, all my idiosyncrasies. It is an autobiography in the form of a song," Jodi says. "It's about embracing being different. Being different often has a negative connotation, but it's not negative at all, it's beautiful."
