Jodi has toured extensively throughout Australia and to Germany, France, the UK and Canada.

Based in Montreal, Canada for four years, Jodi also worked extensively with avant garde composer Louis Dufort. Jodi’s 2022 releases are a stunning collection of new songs, the legacy of two years writing solidly as a member of Sam Hawksley’s Song Club, out of Nashville Tennessee.
After Jodi began writing songs at the the age of three, songwriting was cemented as her core passion in life. Jodi’s professional music career was launched at the age of 16, when she wrote a song for Kasey Chambers and the Dead Ringer Band’s ARIA Award-Winning country album Homefires. With the Weekend Australian hailing Jodi ‘one of Australia’s most talented singer songwriters’, be prepared for Jodi’s insightful rootsy songs to leave you with tears in your eyes and goosebumps on your skin.
With a loyal underground following, Jodi Martin is one of Australia’s hidden treasures, highly respected and loved by her peers in the industry and her fans alike. Arlo Guthrie has been Jodi’s mentor since she first toured nationally with him at 19, and his influence has seen Jodi’s natural storytelling gift blossom into a fine art. Her stories are honest, unique, sometimes vulnerable and often hilarious. Jodi’s fierce integrity and authenticity has always insisted that she follow her heart. In recent years this has led her back to her home from bases in Montreal, Byron Bay and Sydney to South Australia’s coastal desert to be close to family. Being back in her spiritual home has grounded her and the coastal desert of her childhood continues to inspire Jodi’s music.
