Looks can sometimes be deceiving……or at least, sort of. One look at Georgia born and bred Wil Hodge, and you might assume that his musical style swings to the bluesy roadhouse side. He is pictured inside a club, with guitar in hand, and his burly physique would definitely lend itself to that line of thinking. While Hodge’s music does has its’ rough hewn moments, he can also be tender and sentimental on the turn of a dime.
Stylistically, Hodge fares best when he turns up the guitar and belts it out, as he does on the album’s opener, “Evicted.” There’s just something about the blues when it sounds like the person singing has actually lived the words. On the title track, he conjures up the best of Confederate Railroad. No, it’s not textbook, pitch-perfect singing. However, I dare say that anyone who witnesses a performance from Hodge (either live on record) will be entertained. The lyrics are pretty catchy, and he knows how to put a smile on your face, like he does on “Cock A Doodle Do.” I guarantee you won’t find anything in Nashville quite like it. For three minutes, if you can put aside the fact that you will never hear the song on your favorite mainstream Country station, you’ll find something that is at the very least, interesting!
If Hodge were strictly left of center, then he would be easy to pigeon hole as someone who goes totally for shock value. That’s just not true. Covering the map musically, he offers some fine performances that slow down the tempo, as well. “The New Fool” is a prime example, accentuated by a nice harmonica intro from Tom Wolf. His writing talents are in full view on “Listen For The Love” and the achingly beautiful “We Were Friends.” Besides the bluesy stuff and the Country-styled tracks, he just might have a shot as a Gospel writer / performer, as well. “Let Go And Let God” puts a musical spin on his faith, and Hodge handles it just right. He’s a little bit different, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. While Wil Hodge will probably never be voted the CMA Male Vocalist Of The Year, there’s enough here to prove that this guy will build a following wherever he goes. Climb aboard the bandwagon, as it just might get crowded in the future!
