Jodie Aysha Henderson (born 22 November 1988 in Leeds, England) is an English singer and songwriter. Henderson had her first taste of success at the age of 18 when her song "Heartbroken", which she wrote when she was 14 about her older sister who at the time was heartbroken, was remixed by producer T2. "Heartbroken" reached No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart, only to be held off the top spot by X Factor winner Leona Lewis. "Heartbroken" remained on the number 2 spot for five consistent weeks and enjoyed 46 weeks in the UK Top 40 Singles Chart, and also became the most requested track ever on BBC Radio 1Xtra. Henderson is one of the youngest and first UK female artists of her generation to have her first single release become an equally international success when "Heartbroken" peaked at number 10 on the U.S. Billboard Dance Chart. She then went on to write another catchy follow-up, titled "So Typical La La La" which became another underground smash hit and peaked in the top 10 of the Music Weeks Commercial Pop Chart. Following her success, she then went on to become a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing UK.
Henderson has written a large catalogue of songs for many UK and US artists, whilst continuing to independently release her own music through her own record company J.A Music. Her next song titled "I'm a Pozer Zer Zer Zer" also peaked in the top 10 of the Music Weeks Commercial Pop Chart. The single was also featured on HMV's Top Selling Dance Compilation of 2010. Whilst touring the world and gaining a spot at Canadian Music Week’s biggest music festival, Henderson has been focusing on writing and working on her debut album. She recently released an EP for free download titled UK Refixxxs EP which featured some of her takes on big U.S. hits like "Marvins Room" and "Headlines" by Drake, and "Black and Yellow" by Wiz Khalifa. Henderson's single of 2012, "It’s Over (Can’t Get My Love)", which features provocative dance producers the Bassmonkeys, was released on 22 May 2012 and entered the U.S. Kings of Spin Radio & Airplay chart at number 1 on its first day of release to radio and is enjoying support of radio stations across the globe including France, Canada & the U.S. She is set to release another single in 2012 and will be following this with her debut album.
