Odette Biography

“Processing emotion is a common theme throughout a lot of my songs,” explains Sydney based singer-songwriter, Odette. “Music has been a way for me to discuss and kind of analyse emotions and things from a different perspective, rather than just feeling it.” From that statement alone, it should come as no surprise that, despite her 19 years of age, Odette’s first love is language in its purest form. Born in England and raised in the inner western suburbs of Sydney, Odette grew up with an eclectic musical palette. Her South African mother introduced her to African music, soul, funk and rhythm; while her English father, hailing from a long line of jazz pianists, introduced her to new wave, jazz and passed on his musical talents. An avid storyteller, Odette counts Joanna Newsom, Laura Mvula as influences, alongside poets John Keats and Walt Whitman.

19-year-old singer/songwriter Odette released her debut single 'Watch Me Read You' catching the world's attention, a deepily personal song about the shifting experiences of people, time and love. 
Odette has played piano since she was a child and her highly emotive use of the instrument lives at the centre of her songs, a grounding motif of her heritage, if you will.Odette performed at BIGSOUND Festival and Lansdowne in Sydney.
