Jodi Miranda Martin is an Australian singer-songwriter. Her professional music career began in mid-1996 while she was still a student, when she was the opening act for Arlo Guthrie's first Australian tour.[1] Brisbane Times called her "one of Australia's most up and coming singer songwriters."[2] She has been influenced by Joni Mitchell and compared to Tracy Chapman and Suzanne Vega.[3]

Early years[edit]

Martin grew up in Ceduna. She received a BA in music production from Southern Cross University.[3]


Her first musical success was at the age of 17 when the Dead Ringers Band recorded her song Why on their 1995 album Homefires, which won an ARIA award.[3] Her debut album, Water and Wood, won the North Coast Entertainment Industry's Dolphin Award for Album of the Year in 2001.[4][5] She has played at the Woodford Folk Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Folk Festival, and the East Coast Blues & Roots Music Festival, and has toured with Paul Brady, Luka Bloom and The Frames, Arlo Guthrie, Eric Bibb, and The Waifs.[6]
