A philosophical SheBeat classic in the making, ‘Home’ with its theme of belonging, evokes nesting instincts that came to the fore when the pandemic saw many of us at home a lot more often. Life inspired art.

The artwork for the single features a carefully curated hearth scene from the singer-songwriter's home in Leith. The collection of art, photographs and items representing people and places dear to her heart, including letters in resin and concrete made by family in both Liverpool and Leith. Life is collaboration. 


The track includes gorgeous backing vocals from Edinburgh singer-songwriter Sarah Gallagher. The cute meet for the two singer songwriters came about after both artists performed at an International Women’s Day event in 2022. An instant chemistry made sure a collaboration sooner than later was on the cards. 


Originally from Liverpool, SheBeat penned the song when relocating to Leith. ‘Home’ will feature on her debut album From Liverpool To Leith later this year. 


An album 10 years in the making, ‘From Liverpool to Leith’ out in November 2024, will feature a community of wonderful musicians and singers from 10 years on the road as a troubadour. The album will be a celebration of the magic of music and the collaborative community it creates.

Always in a hurry, don’t know why

Living in the fast lane, rushing by

I don’t mind the passing of the time 

Just getting by 


Home, home is where my love is 

Home, home, where my lover is 


Watch the sun fade, drink some wine 

Walking through the Starbank, feeling fine 

Wanna stay here, you and me belong together 

Just getting by 


Home, home, where my love is 

Home, home, where my lover is 


Wanna stay home with you

Wanna be home with you 

Wanna make home with you 



Home, home, where my love is 

Home, home, where my lover is 


SheBeat is the artist name for singer songwriter Jodie Schofield, based in Leith. Indie folk-pop storytelling songs with influences from 60s, 90s and now. A passionate music fan since she was a child, SheBeat only started writing songs and playing guitar in her 30s. This late bloomer loves to perform live to audiences of all sizes and over the past 10 years has collaborated with many musicians and producers to create music and live events. 

Originally from Liverpool, the artist started performing in Liverpool in 2013 and published a self-titled EP in 2014 with the support of Peter Jackson (We Are Catchers) on keys and producer Darren Jones. 

After playing popular local and regional NW events and music festivals including Liverpool Soundcity, the artist relocated to Cornwall and published second EP Feels Like, named after the title track. This EP was recorded in Liverpool's famous Motor Museum Studios with producer James Mellor. 

A third EP Catch Your Breath in 2019 was produced with Jack Tasker at his home studio in Birmingham, where SheBeat had moved to, this time friend Dave Ridley co-wrote a track (Untethered) and provided backing vocals. 

SheBeat then released a Leap Day single Marry Me (2020) produced by Jack Tasker, followed by a flurry of singles: Lockdown Limbo (2020), Believe (2021), So into You (2021), Homecoming Queen (2021) all produced at home with Ian White (Sons of the Descent/ The Wendys). 

2024 is 10 years since the first EP and SheBeat is celebrating this decade of music and community with new music and a debut album 'From Liverpool to Leith' out in November.


A live highlight was securing a spot at Liverpool Soundcity festival in 2018 and enjoying good response from the teatime crowd. In 2019 SheBeat was invited to return to LSC which was another successful show in the intimate setting of Hobo Kiosk, plus spots at the conference Soundcity+ with an industry audience.
