A Fab Four State of Mind
BY GREG CAHILL
Do you know Dodie?
This unassuming Brit (born Dodie Clark) is a singer, uke player, independent recording artist and dancer whose YouTube channel, doddleoddle, has 1.83 million subscribers. Add a side channel and a VEVO channel and Dodie has racked up an impressive 283 million views. During her short career, she has released three indie albums and charted in the Top 40 on the UK Album Chart.
She’s currently on tour in the US and Canada—Dodie closes her tour on October 11 at the Hollywood Palladium.
On the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles’ classic album Abbey Road, we thought it was a good time to revisit one of Dodie’s earliest, and most popular, videos as she lends her sunny disposition to the George Harrison composition “Here Comes the Sun” on ukulele (she also offers millennials a few investment tips).
This laidback video, shot on a hot afternoon in her bedroom, helped to launch Dodiemania—it has drawn 3.8 million viewers, since it was posted in 2015.
