Show Dog-Universal recording artist, JT Hodges brought his eclectic sound to the Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun Casio in Uncasville, CT on Thursday April 3rd. Hodges has been hitting it hard since his 2012 self titled debut release and brought a selection of new songs that he has been hard at work on to incorporate into his live show. Sticking true to his roots, Hodges continues to write from the heart, the way song should be written.
The 90 minute show consisted of crowd favorites such as “Goodbyes Made You Mine”, “Sleepy Little Town” and his first single “Hunt You Down” with a great mix of covers such as
“Hurts So Good” by John Mellencamp and the ever popular “Sledgehammer” from Peter Gabriel. Hodges has picked more of the unique covers to add to his set rather than some of the mundane ones that you hear every band play. I feel that this sets JT apart at brings out who he is as a musician.
Hodges brought the rockin’ beat of his new single “Lay It Down” that was released just the week before this show. This edgy new track, co-written by Eric Paslay is a perfect opening into what JT’s sophomore album is going to bring and if this is the direction, big things are about to happen for JT Hodges.
