Jodi Essex is a multi-talented singer/songwriter who, after spending some time with acting and comedy, has decided to take the leap into the world of writing and recording music. Her debut single, “Irreverent,” is a hard rock song that hearkens back to the ‘80s rock and metal days of Joan Jett and Stryper, but with more of an updated sound and some cleaner production. Though this style doesn’t necessarily have mass appeal in 2020, Essex is able to take the classic style and make it accessible for today’s listeners, which is no small feat. The song itself is fearless and full of attitude, as it draws inspiration from Essex’s life of rebellion; though, instead of spearheading rebellion toward God, “Irreverent” encourages the listener to rebel against the world and its Godless ways. The lyrics aren't the song's strongest point; the bridge is a great example, saying, “Not for the meek, brave and the bold / find all you seek, best story told / any press is good press in Him / fearless, take hold.” Meanwhile, the chorus is honestly a little confusing: “Irreverent for His presence / what you say? / you’re going the wrong way / irreverent, in all the time spent / what you say? / you goin’ my way?” But, regardless, the intended message is clear: follow the Lord and forsake the world. “Irreverent” is just the beginning for Jodi Essex, with another new single out now ("Stand Up"), and a full-length album on its way in the near future. So if you like what you’re hearing here, be on the lookout for more.
