NEW RELEASE: "LIVING OFF THE GRID" (featuring Dee Daniels, Stu Hamm, Jim Cox, Pat Mastelotto, John Stowell and more!) is available for purchase/listening at: http://www.reverbnation.com/thecherylhodgegroup Presently in top 100 jazz acts for U.S. & Canada, lively jazz/blues diva Cheryl Hodge recently received the award for BEST JAZZ SONG, 2013 (Hollywood Music In Media Awards), on Nov. 21, 2013 at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood. She recently completed a tour promoting her brand new 2014 CD: “One Day When I Wasn't Looking”, with Northwest greats: guitarists John Stowell & Brian Cunningham, saxman Josh Cook, bassist Dave Captein and drummer Charlie Doggett. The CD is a submission for the 2015 Grammys. Currently, with a new jazz single (“Tree People”) released from her 2014 CD, along with hits from her previous Blues 2011 CD, "Roots Don't Lie", this jazz/blues/R&B celeb is one busy woman. Hollywood critic Jim DeCicco (of the Hollywood Music In Media Awards) called her Blues 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."
Still enjoying some success from her 2007 jazz release, "INDIGO", featuring Cheryl along with guitar great, John Stowell, Juno winner Brad Turner on trumpet, Tom Colclough on sax, along with a host of musical phenoms; 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 the winner of the GRINDIE Award (RadioIndy.com). She's been featured as an "emerging artist" of the month, on Coast to Coast AM Radio with George Noory. She is also the author of "A Singer's Guide to the WellTrained & Powerful Voice".
