I study the classic writers of standards from the 20th Century for inspiration in the 21st Century, from country blues to broadway tunes, from torch songs to ballads. To my mind these people held all the skills. Give me your brief, a deadline, and I'll bring you a catchy song.

Biography

Blues is direct, honest and full of feeling, it's about today, right now..and as a newsman who lived with deadlines for decades, I love telling stories in my songs. I love to surprise the listener and make them laugh. To get to the USA I sold all my blues albums...a wrench, yes, but the genius of that music is in my bones now.

Lyrics

Dance Me To The End of Love

Written By: Evan Hodge

One by one, day by day we're gonna dance our troubles away
Step by step, til Heaven above
I'm gonna dance you to the end of love

Night by night, year by year
we will grow
dance away our fear

One by one, day by day
we're gonna dance our troubles away

Dance you to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

(repeat Verse 1)

Discography

The 2007 USA Songwriting Contest is my first competition entry, so I chose to do just a melody and an original lyric. No frills. I have with me my lyrics for a Billie Holiday musical, I'd love to meet someone with show arranger skills.

Set List

In the US, I would like to try my hand at writing songs professionally for any commercial purpose. I have dozens of older songs, and constantly write. I have to.
