"From busking on the street's to Canada’s favorite electronic music festivals, Jodie B has been performing since the age of 3."
Performing as a live looping multi-instrumentalist, Jodie B demands attention when she takes the stage. Equipped with an electric violin, telecaster, heart shaped bass, harmonica belt and keys, she is often accompanied by her sister specializing in saxophone, mandolin and vocals.
Her original craft pulls from roots of blues, hip-hop and electronic dance music.
With a strong fan base originating out of Calgary AB, Jodie B is establishing her career and community in Kelowna and Toronto. Her mission is to keep live performance and live instruments in the electronic music scene.
The early days of her career were spent street performing with her father and sister. Valuable lessons were learned when the money they made would go towards new instruments. Over the years their father had introduced violin, mandolin, accordion, guitar, bass, trumpet, harmonica and piano lessons.
Throughout the school years her family toured as a classic rock and country cover band, traveling with a 6 piece band, full PA, trailer and sound man. They performed as the “Bruce Clan” and as “The Preferred Guests” for corporate events, wedding receptions, ceremonies, bars, cafes, festivals and hotels.
After Jodie B finished high school she joined a band of her own called "Won Over Nothing". The group pulled their melodic inspiration from Rage Against the Machine and she quickly adapted to becoming the bassist, vocalist and harmonica player over the short few years they were together.
In recent years Jodie B has performed at Shambhala Music Festival in 2015, 2017 & 2018, Astral Harvest Music Festival in 2016 & 2017 and Boogaloo Art Car & Music Festival in CA in 2017. She was a supporting act for DubFX in Calgary in 2017 & 2018, The Pharcyde and Methodman & Redman both in Calgary with Natural Ensemble in 2017 & 2018. Jodie B has worked with artists such as Kytami, Dj Marky, MoahCity and Chuurch.
