I’m yet to hear an another artist sing the word fuck as beautifully as Jodi Phillis.
You may remember her as one of the distinctive and wonderful voices from The Clouds. I never followed them closely, possibly because at that point I wasn’t following any music or musician’s “closely”, but I still listen to a bunch of their tracks regularly.
On wednesday night Jodi played here in Adelaide at the Grace Emily to a small but attentive and appreciative crowd. She made some excuses for her voice on account of the smoke to which she was unaccustomed. At which point I ought to mention, “respect to the Jade Monkey” (another great place for live music in Adelaide – made better by being smoke free!).
To my ear Jodi had no cause for excuses – she sounded great.
