Jodi Heckenliable born on 29 August 1987. rise up at Qawra. She is a singer.
Back in 2004, Jodi Heckenlaible met Ian Zerafa (Rhythm Guitarist, Vocals in the band and also her boyfriend.) Back then, she was still in her initial stages singing wise. Ian introduced her to acoustic rock and she fell in love instantly. From then on, I knew that this was my path – singing with live musicians! We performed in a few bars for a while, but eventually took a four year break.
Jodi joined her first band in January 2010. Although it was a great experience, she didn’t feel as if it was the direction she wanted to take, musically. So, she started her own project in 2011 where she was once again joined with Ian, musically. They have always had a special connection which made creating music fairly easy and flowing.
