Jodi Phillis (born in Melbourne, Australia on April 11, 1965) is an Australian singer-songwriter-guitarist. She spent her childhood in California, United States, and moved back to Sydney, Australia to begin school. She quit school at 15, then spent 8 years working with surfwear company Mambo Graphics until she took up the role as co-frontwoman of The Clouds. During this time, Phillis was best known for her vocal ability in many of her songs, such as 'Hieronymus', 'Souleater' and 'Ghost of Love Returned'.
After the Clouds' split in 1997 Phillis formed the Dearhunters project, and from then on she took a much mellower musical direction. Her debut solo album Lounge o' Sound, embraced many exotic textures, while its follow-up, the more conventional In Dreams I Live (2001) received much critical acclaim. The track Waiting, Wanting, Holding was featured in the ABC's series Love Is A Four-Letter Word. In Dreams… went on to receive two ARIA Award nominations. Her third solo album, For Lovers, Artists and Dreamers, was released in 2004.
2005 saw Phillis reunite with former Clouds band-mate Trish Young, under the aptly-named moniker The Girls From The Clouds. Their EP Lalalala was released in early 2006.
