Forever in Your Melodies is a pre-recorded acoustic live performance conducted by singer songwriter Jodie Reid in her home environment. It showcases songs from two of her albums namely: ‘Secondary Sight’ and ‘Celtic Commotion’.

The songs performed from Secondary Sight are predominantly emotion based and explore themes such as anxiety, loneliness and determination. The second section explores the stories of Celtic Commotion, focusing on the lives and situations of imaginary characters set in the Medieval Era. The melodic narratives of ‘Una on the Isle’ and ‘The Cloaked Man’ offer audiences a different perspective and potentially a form of escapism from the modern world. In addition to her originals, she performs a rendition of two of her favourite songs: ‘I Miss You’ – Blink 182 and ‘Trøllabundin’ – Eivør. With a somewhat DIY approach, Jodie attempts to create a comfortable environment in which audiences can explore and discover the links between contrasting genres of music. Presenting acoustic guitar and lyrical remedies she remains Forever in Your Melodies…

Performance & Concept:Jodie Reid


Raised near the Klipriversberg Nature Reserve in Johannesburg, South Africa, Jodie Reid is all about the natural side of things. Her catchy, sometimes haunting lyrics inspire thought while challenging the norm and reintroducing the organic nature of song writing. Completing her first song at the age of 12, Jodie has learnt to respect the process of creating music through her studies at Campus of the Performing Arts, earning a Bachelor of Music (Honours) in Performance (2018). She enjoys exploring genres outside of her comfort zone, however; she remains true to her Acoustic influences. Receiving endless encouragement and support from her mother, Jodie played her first live performance in 2017 at a local Mardi Gras. Since then she has been active in the gigging industry, gaining the opportunity to open for her role model – Jesse Clegg at one of his performances. In July 2019, Jodie released her 12 track debut album ‘Secondary Sight’ along with two collaborations. The first of these collaborations entitled ‘Elevate’ was written at an International Songwriters Camp in Haarlem, Netherlands (2017). The second, ‘Move Ya!’ was completed at The Roundhouse , London – sponsored by Nandos Uk. Currently, Jodie is performing live, teaching music to children, exploring different genres of collaboration and promoting her most recent album ‘Celtic Commotion’ (released in May 2020).
