Jodi Arlyn's songs feature personal yet universally recognizable themes; stories you've heard before, but told in refreshing new ways.
Stars Up On The Ceiling, is the long-awaited debut album from NYC-based singer-songwriter Jodi Arlyn. It's a collection of sophisticated pop songs sure to resonate with listeners who appreciate lush melodies and memorable lyrical hooks. The collection of 8 songs was produced by singer-songwriter Adrian Harpham, and will be released on January 3, 2012. It features 6 new tracks, plus previously available favorites Love Lover, and Needless to Say. The album was recorded at Brooklyn’s Mighty Toad Recording Studio (http://www.mightytoad.com/) with musicians John Deley (Dido, The Weepies) on keys, Robin Macatangay (Morley, Kelli Sae, Holly Palmer) on guitars, Jonathan Maron (Groove Collective, MeShell Ndegeocello) on bass, and Harpham (Amel Larrieux, Robin McKelle, Patti Rothberg) on drums.
A Massachusetts native, Arlyn has spent the last 16 years in New York City, performing her original material at venues such as NYC’s famed (and sadly, now defunct) CBGB’s, Village mainstay, The Bitter End, and Cambridge, Massachusetts’ Lizard Lounge.
Arlyn says, "I enjoy listening to artists who amaze me with clever word-play. I love hearing a chord change that drips with emotion and angst and, for lack of a better explanation, feels like a punch in the stomach! As far as my songs go - well - although the subject matter often comes from personal experience, I like to think that I'm writing about things that everyone can relate to - unrequited love, anger, embarrassment, lust, happiness. My hope is that you'll hear something that speaks to you and that maybe you'll also 'feel the punch'…"
