Behind The Tracks: Jodi Essex - Offend (Single) (2021)


Written by Jodi Essex and Josiah Prince of Disciple, “Offend” is the first song in a series of songs to mark their new collaboration. Similar to her experience with Sean Hill (Jamie Grace, Clay Crosse, Landry Cantrell) for her 10-song debut album, “Irreverent,” Essex has described the process of writing with Josiah as amazing and positive, backed by “RADICALLY EPIC” songs that have emerged. Citing a vast array of musical influences like 80s and 90s rock legends like Def Leppard, Guns N Roses and Sevendust, Jodi’s music is never too far from her roots. With a sound that could be compared to Skillet, Fireflight and Alice in Chains, “Offend” forges a new path for Jodi that is a cross between classic and hard-hitting modern rock.
 
Exuding unapologetic conviction, “Offend” continues Jodi’s irreverence to the world for the sake of the Gospel. Through her debut album released Summer 2020, “Irreverent” instantly resonated with it as featured tracks rose into top-20 ranking. Essex’s music was celebrated by outlets including NewReleaseToday, CCM Magazine, JesusFreakHideout, and Worship Leader Magazine who gave it rave reviews. In addition, Jodi’s debut album quickly racked up over 70k streams on Spotify, where its songs landed on several prominent playlists, including “New Music Friday Christian.” With the album release for “Irreverent,” Jodi took to the [cyber] stage with a livestream performance, proving her ability to bring the power of these messages to life.
 
By challenging listeners through “Offend,” Jodi hopes its message will ring loud and clear for both church leadership and congregants, alike. Upon listening, Jodi wants them to feel empowered, emboldened and PUMPED. In Jodi’s words, “I want them to feel energized and re-energized as they traverse their journeys.”
 
Look out for Jodi’s new single, “Offend” out September 10, 2021 with an accompanying music video.
