Singer and Songwriter Jody Rule McMonagle, born March 19th 1979 Royal Ascot Berkshire England, coming from a large yet humble background.
An ex BRITS School Student studying Drama (Drama GCSE and Drama Core) and Music (music technology and Music GCSE).
Music has always played a big part of my life with many family members being awesome musicians with some of the best stars of the past and to date to always having to be in the school play. Top of the list of inspirations has to be my Father and a few very important people would be my uncle Ivor Ray and my Nan.
Music influence is very varied from traditional Pop, R&B, Soul and Gospel. My Idols include Lionel Ritchie, Kirk Franklin, Leo Sayer, Elvis Presley Neil Diamond, James Taylor, Michael Jackson, Elton John and Tracey Chapman. The bands that I have admired range from Hot Chocolate, Kool and the Gang, Stylistics and The Drifters to Supertramp UB40, Commodores and so many more.
