This indie pop sextet from Oxford finish their first UK tour at the Chichester Inn, so expect an upbeat selection of their own perfectly formed power pop. Despite only forming as the pandemic landed, the band have featured on Radcliffe and Maconie on 6 Music and recently did a Janice Long session, with comparisons to Kirsty MacColl, Blondie and The GoGos.

Formed in Oxford in the summer of 2019, Jody & the Jerms have been writing, recording and playing their blend of melodic and uplifting indie/alt rock ever since – with national airtime on Radio X (UK), Sirius XM (USA), RTVE (Spain) and BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing, BBC Wales and BBC Ulster.

“Spinning – an effervescent sugar-rush of a song, all giddy fuzz and jangle and singer Jody’s almost childlike sing-song voice, somewhere between Kirsty MacColl and Amelia Fletcher.” – Nightshift Magazine (Sept 2021)

“It’s almost like power pop, a bit Bangles… or jangle pop. Lovely.” – Radcliffe & Maconie, BBC 6 Music (April 2021)

“Jody had to be coerced into singing, and she does it really well. It’s good, isn’t it!” – Janice Long, BBC Wales (April 2021)

“Jody & the Jerms, sounding sparky! Like bands used to sound.” – Mickey Bradley, The Undertones/BBC Ulster (Feb 2021)

With support from Olivia Stevens & Co., singer-songwriter Olivia (formerly of Ruby & The Revelators) will be performing alongside some fine musicians as she delights audiences with her uniquely warm and engaging mix of jazz & blues-tinged torch songs, coupled with a large helping of smokin’ hot soul.
