New YouTube Channel

December 22, 2016

Hey everybody! I just wanted to take a quick second and let you know about my brand new YouTube channel exclusively for my compositions and arrangements. I will be uploading videos for all my future pieces and will include applicable links such as score download, audio track downloads, etc. So stop by and subscribe! Be sure to like, share, and comment while you’re browsing, too! Channel name: Christopher Hodges [Musician] …

I’d love to introduce you to my latest creation! This arrangement of You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch was one of my favorite projects this year. It was also my very first arrangement for piano duet. Unfortunately, I won’t have time to get it recorded before the holidays are over so this software rendering will have to do. The arrangement takes us through the story of the Grinch. Starting in…

What Hate Considers Might (By Chris Hodges) Guns don’t kill people but people who shouldn’t have them do   I wish we were bullets of love and we would all go “boom”   They want us to be afraid but I’ll respectfully refuse   Fear is not a weapon I’ll allow them to use   I’ll let them take my body before I give them my mind   My soul is…

I posted this little video (taken directly with the Instagram app) of me making hot chocolate on the first really cold day of autumn. I had to kill the audio due to the rambunctious 6 year old playing in the background. After I posted it, I decided to put some music to it. I originally intended to have a few instruments but when I started working on it, I realize…

Studio Time and New EP

August 18, 2015

Greetings! So a couple of months ago, Clint Singleton, Jacob Patillo and myself locked ourselves in a studio in Alabama and recorded six original songs. We arrived around 4 pm, setup our gear, worked out some audio kinks and started recording instruments and scratch vocals. We all crashed on site and started the vocal sessions not long after 8 am. By 1 pm, we had the vox and overdubs (what few…

Playing God

June 19, 2015

It’s ridiculous the number of times that I have heard “sane” people say “I wish I would have had my gun on me” or “They better be glad I wasn’t packin’”when talking about a mild confrontation with someone. It’s also ridiculous the number of “sane” people I know that has actually pulled a gun on someone -over little things like grocery store or highway encounters. Not life threatening events; encounters and…

Success, Redefined.

May 19, 2015

  Garden lights cast a warm, yellowish tint on my book and me. The breeze causes my hair to tickle my cheek. I can’t see much through screen except some lights of the city off in the distance. This is probably my favorite room in the house. The floor is slanted like many add-ons to a house this old. The house itself is small. At least, smaller than we need.…

Hey everybody! I hope this quick little post finds you well. I also hope I can make the day even better for you 🙂 A little over a year ago, I wrote this little ditty called Sunsets and Starlight. It was inspired by a beautiful time-laps nature video. Even though its released version isn’t the most polished, it has actually seen air time on a couple of European radio stations! Crazy,…

Today I pushed out a new video to my YouTube channel (it hit my Instagram, too, officially making it an #instagroove). I’ve done several of these short, improvised groove videos but this one is a little unique. It’s got me all giddy and stuff. On instagram, you will see the 15 second clip of the longer (1:15) video from YouTube. It’s a little ditty in an odd time signature – you guessed it,…
