Jody created two songs for our Girls for the World program that skillfully capture the essence of our message. After only one meeting, Jody intuitively understood our work and beautifully articulated both music and lyrics into a signature song called “Girls for the World” that is memorable and appealing to girls the world over. We use “Becoming Who You Are” in our program as a backdrop to the leadership building work that we do. To see the girls dance to this coming of age song always brings tears to my eyes. Jody’s spirit and enthusiasm made our working together pure pleasure. I highly recommend Jody Soland!

I wanted something unique and special to give my husband as a Christmas gift, so I commissioned Jody to write a love song based upon our story as a married couple. Both the music and lyrics were wonderful, and Jody delivered the song via a private concert. Her voice is truly angelic!
My husband decided to have Jody record the song as a gift to me! We both loved the CD, and of course, we both cried when we heard it. What an absolute treasure Jody gave us! Our song is truly a beautiful piece of work.

The song that you wrote for me to surprise Renee with was exquisite; it captured, perfectly, the sentiments I wished to share with her, as a continual reminder to her of who she is, how I see her and how I feel about her. You captured my heart for her in song! Thank you, Jody for your special talent.

Jody, I dont' know how you did it, but every song you wrote for our wedding was perfect!
The song "Remembering" for our parents captured their thoughts and feelings to a T!
This was exactly what we wanted for them, as we honored our parents. They loved it!
Carrie's processional song could not have been more beautiful!
"My Walk" said everything, and your voice was like an angel, the music so tender and gorgeous!
Our song " When I Found You" blew us away! We still cant believe the way you told our story, in a song we will always treasure.
Everyone commented on the music and asked where we found you!
Your music was the highlight of our wedding day!
Thank you for everything!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Jody, for how you opened our event, and wove your songs throughout the weekend workshop. Every song fit so perfectly and beautifully, every song was so fitting and so wonderful. I have been listening to your glorious CD's. They make me very happy, and please know how much they will be listened to in our household.
With Thanksgiving approaching, I am grateful for you.

Thank you for the beautiful songs you wrote for our wedding. You captured exactly what we were feeling that day. This was the best gift we recieved by far!
Everyone loved our music!

I was honored when Jody agreed to sing/play her guitar at my mother’s funeral. She recently done this for our minister when her mother had passed so I felt she would be a good choice for music. But what I didn’t realize is that she would totally make mom’s funeral the most impactful, soul-felt, meaningful funeral anyone there had ever experienced. Jody’s music felt gentle, loving and supportive. The night before, she had actually written a song specifically for mom that truly captured her essence. We were all blown away. Even those who were there to support my sisters and myself, and who didn’t know mom, were emotionally affected by this special music. One week later I am still receiving letters about how beautiful the service was, mostly because of Jody’s contribution. I highly recommend Jody for any occasion where heart and soul is desired.

Jody Solond sings from her heart to your heart! The Summit County Traumatic Brain Injury Collaborative was wonderfully blessed to have Jody sing and speak at our TBI Survivors Conference held in Akron, Ohio, in November of 2012.
Her songs inspired, encouraged, and made all the survivors and family members know that they are not traveling alone on this journey. She had the audience laughing spontaneously at the insightful and humorous view of the hospital patient’s “view” expressed in the lyrics of her music. Jody sings and plays a guitar beautifully, but it is her natural ability to reach out and connect with her audience that sets her apart as a gifted musician. She touched the hearts of everyone at the conference, capping it off with joy. Thank you, Jody.

“Never have I come across a more sincere, spiritual, and talented singer-songwriter than Jody. Her heart and soul are revealed through her musical message. She absolutely captured the essence of our 2012 Relay For Life Survivor/Caregiver ceremony with her inspirational creation “Shine the Light”. She further enveloped those walking for loved ones lost to cancer with the comforting lyrics and gentle melody of “Angels” and “I Remember You”. Jody has the incredible ability to empathize with the occasion and to create a song that truly gives meaning to the moment where words alone would fail.”

I would like to extend my sincere appreciation for your participation at the 9th Annual SAVE (Students Against Violence Everywhere) Summit. Comments from youth at the Summit were very positive concerning your sessions and closing song. Your performance of “You are the Hero” was excellent!
Very Much in keeping with our theme, and you engaged and pumped up the audience.
You appeared on several evaluations as the ”Favorite Part of the Summit” Thank you for all that you do each day to assist in making our nation’s schools and communities safer through your project and song “Til You Can See Me”. As your music says, only through making connections between youth and members of the community can we begin to make a real difference. I look forward to discussing with you how we can continue to work together.
