“Jodi Beach not only sings fantastically; She communicates. She draws you in. She is the highest compliment of what a singer would hope to be!”
Otis Skillings Composer, Arranger, Conductor
As a member of the National Independent Artist’s Registry, the Illinois Arts Council Artstour Roster, and the RAMI (Rockford Area Music Industry) Hall of Fame, Jodi has earned much acclaim. A 9-time RAMI and 5-time “Best of” On The Waterfront Music Festival Award winning jazz musician, she and her Trio regularly perform throughout the country. Their 2014 inspirational release, “You Are Not Alone,” earned Jodi a Song of the Year RAMI Award for the title track. The Trio’s 2010 release, “West of the Moon,” earned The Jodi Beach Trio the RAMI for Album of the Year.
If you ask her mother when Jodi first began to sing, she will look at you with a very sincere face and ask, “When hasn’t she?” Truly from birth Jodi has been warming people’s hearts with pure and beautiful vocal tones. At the age of five she started piano lessons and could read sheet music before she could read English.
Though Jodi can bang out notes with the best of them she has never been one to “trade solos and go home.” She can always be heard playing well thought out and rehearsed arrangements that pull at your heartstrings one minute, have you dancing the next, and always treat you to the thing she loves to do the most…SING!
