She's currently in the top 10 for Canada (ReverbNation jazz charts). She has been compared to Etta James, and Nancy King - which gives you some idea of her range of performing. She’s was a “featured artist of the month” (Nov. ‘09) on COAST To COAST AM with George Noory, with spotlight on the latest cut “That’s Why I’m Here". Winner of the GRINDIE Award from RadioIndy.com. Cheryl is a headliner and adjudicator at several jazz festivals, including the Envision Jazz Fest (the largest educational jazz festival in Canada), and the internationally acclaimed Kaslo Jazz Fest, in 2010. Working with greats like guitarist JOHN STOWELL, and Horn Players like BRAD TURNER, and TOM COLCLOUGH, jazz and blues have been kind to Hodge. She has been a top ten artist in jazz charts for ‘09 with songs: “Indigo” and “Guide to Recovery”, "Give In", "Do You", and "Adios" from ‘09 Indigo Album. Hodge is a gifted pianist and isn’t afraid to visit the outer stretches of “scatting” (vocal jazz improvisation); yet loves singing Blues and R&B (think Etta James). Cheryl taught Voice at Boston’s Berklee College of Music; currently head of Voice/Songwriting at Selkirk College in Nelson, B.C. Cheryl Hodge is also the author of "A Singer’s Guide to the Well-Trained and Powerful Voice".
