Name: Dillon Hodges

Hometown: Muscle Shoals, AL

If You Like: The Civil Wars, Ben Harper, Bob Dylan

Sounds like: A new take on Old Time music, with deep bluesy vocals. Dillon’s flat-picking guitar style beckons bluegrass and folk fans alike.

Download: “Bullet For a Broken Heart,” sounds like a scene from Cold Mountain. It hits that note of old-fashioned storytelling with a backbeat that you’ll be drumming all day. “Movin On” is a lively tune showcasing Dillon’s nod towards vintage vocal and finger-picking style.

Dillon performs at Birmingham’s Bottletree Cafe on August 23rd at 7pm.
