She was influenced by jazz pianist/singer Christine Hitt a teacher at Webster, who introduced Bode to jazz and often invited her to sing during select shows in the area. Her first such show was at the Missouri Athletic Club. Bode graduated with a degree in music and foreign languages (Italian and French), though she changed her major from classical music during her time at Webster.Bode remained in the area upon graduation and produced her first studio album, Requests, in 2001.
