Though not yet out of his twenties, Chris Hodges has been performing
in the southeast for over fifteen years and has lived in Atlanta and
New York City. His eclectic background of rock, pop, hip hop, blues,
classic rock, bluegrass, and jazz allows him to fit in with and add to
any music he happens to sit in on. As a studio bassist, Chris has
logged hundreds of hours behind both electric and double bass. Whether
laying down grooves for hip hop or playing with a pick on a hard rock
track, Chris is in his zone. Though still active in all styles as a
freelance bassist, Chris has dedicated his attention and studies to
jazz and classical music. Chris has studied under some of the regionís
most prolific players and writers. He has been awarded several
scholarships due to his playing and has held down the head bass chair
at University of Montevallo and Troy University.
The drive that Chris possesses as a band leader is clear when you see
his band perform. Whatever the incarnation may be, you can be sure the
group is well rehearsed and well prepared. He chooses only the best
musicians for the job and knows each oneís strengths and limitations.
Chris truly is one of the hardest working musicians in the area. He is
a thoughtful yet strong leader that cares about his musicians which
makes his musicians care about him. This makes for great on-stage
chemistry and a constantly evolving performance.
