Freshly Squeezed: Introducing… Jodie Abacus


Here at That Grape Juice, we’re enamored with the talent of today, but also the rising stars of tomorrow.

Enter Jodie Abacus.

Reared in South-London, the Pop-Funk singer/songwriter has been attracting the attention of music lovers – thanks largely to recent EP ‘For Real Life And Not Pretend.’  

Tracks such as ‘I’ll Be That Friend’ have garnered praise for cutting deep in the most resonating of ways. The Soul-soaked song recalls a time when in the singer’s life all went south and he didn’t have a friend to turn to. Veering away from the “same ol,” lyrically ‘I’ll Be’ sees the rising star swear to be that confidant to someone else when in need.

Also in his repertoire is Coca-Cola endorsement of ‘Hot Kitchen,’ which has been play-listed by the BBC and current single, ‘She’s In Love With The Weekend’ – available to listen to below…

With in album in the works, Jodie is cooking up jams with the likes of Tobias Jesso Jr and Duke Durmont.

We’re buzzed for what’s to come. Take a listen above and let us know if you are too!

    Cool retro sound. I’m getting a Beatles vibe from I’ll Be That Friend, which I think is radio-friendly enough to put some effort behind it.
