Jodie Brooke Wilson is a talented and dynamic singer/songwriter but that’s not all.
For the stunning singer has shown her versatility by working in every sphere of the entertainment industry since her day’s as a child star back home in Australia
Such is her success that fresh out of drama school, she made her West End debut as the female lead opposite Cliff Richard in the hit musical Time.
Shortly later she swapped the stage for the big screen, blowing the audience away as the singer in the Glenn Miller style 1940’s big band in the hit film Memphis Belle, working alongside Harry Connick Jr, Billy Zane and Mathew Modine.
She then moved back to her first love recording the album Matador with the legendary Tom Jones.
Jodie then recorded an album with her sister called The Wilsons and had success touring Canada, where she performed with The Judds, Kenny Rogers and Reba McEntire at the famous Big Valley Jamboree, Canada’s biggest country festival.
It wasn’t long before Jodie was striking out on her own as a solo artist.
Her first two singles “Anything you Want” and “Falling” were both widely acclaimed, singling her out as a major talent to watch in the future.
Her debut single “Anything You Want” was put straight on the radio play list and reached No. 5 in the dance charts. The song was produced by the same team who have worked with the likes of The spice Girls and Bryan Adams,
Her follow – up single “Falling” enjoyed similar success, remaining on the radio play list for an impressive three months.
Certainly , producer Ric Wake, who has worked with the best divas around including Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and Jennifer Lopez, was quick to recognise Jodie’s powerful and melodic voice as well as her gift as a songwriter, which was why he was so keen to produce her single “Falling”.
Not only do record industry heavyweights, such as Ric Wake see her flare for song-writing: so do a string of other performers. One such artist is Kelle Bryan from Eternal, who released Jodie’s track “Higher Than Heaven’ which became a top ten UK hit in the Autumn of 1999.
Singer Louise also recorded “Love will bring you back” on her platinum- selling Woman In Me album.
But somewhat ironically one of her most recent achievements has come from her home territory Down Under where the popular girl band Bardot, recorded Jodie’s song Higher Than Heaven” on their no. 1 self titled double platinum album.
The group shot to fame after appearing on Australia’s highest ever rating show Popstars.
But the song’s success doesn’t stop there. Shortly later, it was selected as the theme tune for channel Seven’s Sydney Olympic Games coverage, arguably receiving more mass media airplay than any other song in Australia during the lead up to the Games.
Bardot’s version of “Higher Than Heaven” can also be heard on the upcoming soundtrack for the film Rugrats.
Jodie is signed to EMI Music Publishing worldwide as a singer / songwriter and while she is currently recording her own material with Sony Uk she has also been collaborating with Brian Rawlings producer of Chers No. 1 Hit “Believe” and Tin Tin Out, who produced tracks on The Corr’s Talk On Corners.
