"In the seemingly eternal debate about who or what is or isnt a jazz singer anybody with ears would without hesitation and with great enthusiasm cite CHERYL HODGE as the REAL THING!" - Bob Protzman Downbeat writer; NPR host: "Everything Jazz" 2009 is turning out to be a big year for Cheryl Hodge. Having just completed her high energy fusion album "INDIGO" (2009) with Juno winning trumpet player Brad Turner Saxophonist Tom Colclough and guitar greats John Stowell & Cliff Maddix; and her smoking hot rhythm section; with bassist Dave Captein and drummer Charlie Doggett. With over 20 years of playing & touring with some of the finest jazz musicians in the U.S. & Canada Hodge is a gifted pianist and isn't afraid to visit the outer stretches of "scatting" territory. Her first love however remains (and most likely forever will be...) composing. Hodge has performed alongside: John Stowell Mike Stern Hugh Fraser Dee Daniels & countless others.'
