When Montreal seed David Hodges stepped into the world he finds purpose in, he did it with both eyes open, and not one brow crooked; both ears listening without self-centric filtering, and one mind and voice functioning in tandem to balance thoughts and words with sincere respect for both the message and the people receiving it.
A respected hip hop producer and gifted MC active in the culture for nearly a decade, Hodges blends soul, funk, rock and gospel in a fashion that combines the best of their individual elements, as his insightful rap narratives compel the listener not only to live life, but to craft it as thoughtfully and carefully as he does his music.
Hodges has shared the stage with many music legends such as Phife Dawg, The Tragically Hip, City and Color, Tech N9ne, Gangstaar, Raekwon of Wu-Tang, Kardinal Official, De La Soul, Swollen Members, Blue King Brown, Shad K, K-Os, and more. He has been featured in many media outlets such as The Huffington Post, New York Daily News, CTV News, CBC News, CBC Radio and The Montreal Gazette. He is currently backed by his band called “The Honest Family”, a collective of musicians and artists brought together through the love of music.
The attention he has drawn by simply doing what he believes in has earned him opportunities unachievable through purely self-interested solicitation. His grind positions him justly as a go-to on the Canadian hip hop scene that hasn’t merely sold hundreds of beats through his production company, that hasn’t just stepped on international stages, but who also tours in over 30 schools yearly and provides inspirational workshops that influence kids to keep in the right direction. Hodges exemplifies what it means to be a dedicated producer, an honest performer and a passionate man.
