Stephen William Hodd
Stephen William Hodd is an artist with intense commitment to fearlessly mining the tunnels of the self using musical connection as the tool for revelation through the gritted restraint of a wide ranging voice, all deftly guided by a fingerpicking dexterity, loops and sonic explosions! He releases music on his own label Savage Acoustic Records in order to maintain his fiercely guarded desire for independent creative freedom.
girl in a gale
'My musical approach is like a photographer going out for the 7am golden hour: clouds with early sun filtering through, momentarily giving extraordinary colours to the trees and river. In my music I seek fleeting moments of harmony and rhythm: composing, conducting, performing, mixing and recording at the same time, as a solo artist.'
