      Dodie

      with Adam Melchor
      Most adults in their mid-twenties have grown up with the internet in some way; indodies case she grew up in front of it. As a teenager living in Epping - a town inEssex, dangling off the north-eastern end of Londons Central Line - dodie started upa YouTube account, and began releasing her own songs on the platform ever since.Fast-forward seven years, and she has built a dedicated following that numbers intothe millions. Its a following that has also taken her right to the Top 10 of the UKalbum charts (her last EP, You charted at No.6). By thoroughly modern means,dodie has become one of the most successful DIY artists of recent times. Once mostcomfortable armed with a microphone and ukulele in her bedroom, releasing musicon the platform that started it all, dodies grown to love the stage. Next year she playsLondons Roundhouse, which sold out five months upfront; an unprecedentedachievement for an artist without a debut album to her name.Going right back to the beginning where it all began - dodies first upload was a songcalled Rain - music has always been her first love. Raised on a soundtrack ofQueen and Electric Light Orchestra, her lunch breaks at school were jam-packedwith various extracurricular clubs. It was like, choir, the recorder, orchestra, windband, african drumming... and I went to every single one, she remembers. Such amusic geek.Making music always seemed like a second nature medium for chronicling herfeelings. Its such a nice way of exploring something so complex and giant in yourmind, she says. Returning to it, too, and finding new meaning in it. Theyre like,capsules of time. Its like writing a diary.I make whatever I want, Im making music I want to hear now, dodie explains. I getoverwhelmed by a feeling, and its easy to hold onto and write around that. My songsare like an exploration of a certain feeling. Sometimes I write down phrases whichpeople have said.... I think every songwriters notes app is full of shit, she laughs.
