Signed to Decca to relaunch the Verve label, 20-year-old Jodie Marie follows a strong lineage of artists - from Nina Simone and Billie Holliday to the Velvet Underground - and is set to transcend trends and convention with her debut album (produced by Bernard Butler and Ed Harcourt) that is due out in March 2012.

Featured Artist – Amplify Dot

Born in South London, Amplify Dot was never far from music. From the age of four, she would listen to the sounds of Salt n Pepa, Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix.

Featured Artist – Lucy Rose

After the buzz of her debut single, Middle of the Bed, making her the No.1 most listened to artist on Last.FM on the week of release, getting to No.5 on The Hype Machine chart and clocking almost half a million views on the eminent Watch Listen Tell sessions Lucy Rose is undoubtedly a star in the ascendant.

Featured Artist – The Xcerts

In the sleepy town of Bethpage, New York, THE XCERTS may as well have been The Beatles – British AND in a band?! It’s true what they say: Americans LOVE that kind of thing.

Featured Artist – Ben Howard

Ben Howard is a young acoustic troubadour who will make you feel as though he is the first young acoustic troubadour you have ever heard. He brings freshness to the form, gives it lustre, making it all seem brand new even as his songs have about them a quality of wisdom and a rootsy authenticity as old as the hills.

Featured Artist: Bernadette Ryan

As ambitious as young writer/artists go, 21yr old Bernadette Ryan is certainly setting her bar high with dreams of platinum records and international hits.
