Winner, Best Jazz Song 2013 Hollywood Music In Media Awards
Lively jazz & blues singer, songwriter Cheryl Hodge recently received the award for BEST
JAZZ SONG, 2013 "Tree People" (Hollywood Music In Media Awards), on Nov. 21, 2013 at
the Fonda Theater in Hollywood. She recently completed a summer tour promoting her
brand new CD: “One Day When I Wasn't Looking”, with guitarist John Stowell, and a host of
west coast greats. The CD is submitted for the 2015 Grammy Awards in the category of
Best Jazz Vocal Album.
With recent hits from her previous 2011 Blues CD, "Roots Don't Lie", and her earlier 2007
jazz CD "Indigo", 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."
Her 2007 jazz release, "INDIGO", features 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 a
winner of the GRINDIE Award (RadioIndy.com)
