The CHERYL HODGE Trio with Michael Denny on Guitar and Dylan Hodge on bass play for the Art Walk concert at The Jazz Station! Lively & bluesy singer, songwriter Cheryl Hodge is always on the scene. With recent hits from her latest CD, "Roots Don't Lie," this jazz-blues celeb is one busy woman. Hollywood critic Jim DeCicco (of Hollywood Music In Media Awards) called her latest recording: "A masterfully produced contemporary (Chicago) jazz/blues release that is fresh and vivid. World class performances and arrangements - a must for any true music lover's collection."
Her previous successful jazz release, "INDIGO," featured Cheryl along with guitar great, John Stowell, Juno winner Brad Turner on trumpet, Tom Colclough on sax, along with a host of musical phenoms. The title song, "Indigo," won "Best Jazz Song" at 2010 Hollywood Music In Media Awards.
Downbeat critic Bob Protzman said of Indigo: "In the seemingly eternal debate about who or what is or isn't a jazz singer, anybody with ears would without hesitation and with great enthusiasm cite Cheryl Hodge as the real thing."
Hodge is also winner of the GRINDIE Award (RadioIndy.com). Both a blues and a jazz singer, Cheryl Hodge has been featured as an "emerging artist" of the month on Coast to Coast AM Radio with George Noory. She was nominated for Best Blues Song in 2011 Hollywood Music In Media Awards for "That's Why I'm Here."
