Jodie Abacus - I'll Be That Friend
Jodie grew up in Lewisham, South East London. As his dad was a DJ Jodie listened to a range of music listing ‘Zoom’ by Fat Larry’s Band as one of his earliest memories. At college he drew two arrows on his pad, one direction leading to acting the other to music. He chose music and still scribbles his lyrics in a range of notebooks. After a number of songs released on line he released ‘Hot Kitchen’ and ‘I’m In Love With The Weekend’ before ‘I’ll Be That Friend’. The video was filmed on a street corner in Los Angeles with Jodie playing his colourful piano while behind the scenes, police directed the traffic. This track has already made the latest ‘Now’ compilation in America alongside Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift. Before taking up music full time he was a teaching assistant. Jodie will play 4 UK shows at the end of September.
