Earlier this summer, American Christian-rock artist Jodi Essex dropped the official lyric video for “Soar”, which can be viewed below.
Although Jodi has been a Christian her entire life, “Irreverent” highlights something she has experienced for years; through her work in entertainment, which included television, film and the pursuit of a more-secular music career, Jodi felt like her heart and purpose weren’t always in the right place.
As doors have opened and closed, Jodi’s music journey has been marked by moments she’s felt God saying, “It doesn’t matter; trust me and my plan for your life.”
Jodi Essex is an actress, producer and singer/songwriter from Carmel in Northern California.
She took great interest in the performing arts as a youth and regularly performed as a soloist in her church as well as leading worship for her youth group.
She began to segue into commercial acting and landed her first episodic role on Candid Camera. While pursuing her act icing career, Jodi continued to develop her vocal and performance skills which led to an interest in writing her own music.
Eventually, she began focusing solely on a music career, playing and touring in two mainstream rock bands she helped form.
Years later, finally heeding strong promptings from God and feeling led to share some hard-learned life lessons and poignant, transformational experiences, she finds herself back to her faith-filled roots.
She recently released ‘SOAR’ and you can watch the video here:
