“Angel” from the forthcoming album “S.O.O.N” (Something Out Of Nothing) is released;
A move that has thrilled an army of fans across the world

New York, NY-- David Hodges (3D) is preparing to release his debut single on June 14, 2011, marking a huge stage in the career of the multi-talented singer-songwriter & Producer. David, who lives in between Washington, DC & New York City, NY, has just put the final touches on the single, and is now preparing for the much anticipated release that will build his fan base and get his music heard by more people than ever worldwide.

The single, titled “Angel”, is the first track from his forthcoming release titled “S.O.O.N” (Something Out Of Nothing), which consists of eleven original songs. Angel was chosen as the single by management because it is based on a true story and it also reflects the season of summer when love seems to bloom. The song tells a story of falling in love, laced with David’s melodic vocals and heartfelt lyrics and a rhythmic beat punched throughout with a strong pop, hip-hop sound.

The theme of his upcoming album, which is about enjoying live and to never cry about what you don’t have but make the most of what you do have, underlies the changes that David has gone through over recent years, the biggest of which being the ‘switch’ from DC to NY and working with and around Grammy award nominees and winners. It was this that allowed him to thrive off the new opportunities presented to him, to explore fresh sounds and develop his musical style.

He began to gain recognition in venues throughout US, always wanting to bring something unique to a traditional sound. For this reason, his emphasis on rhythmic vocals has been enhanced by renowned opera coach Maria Fattore, and he can now to combine his new vocal ability with the myriad instruments he plays such as the piano, guitar & drums.

Recently, he was invited to do a live television performance on BronxNet -OPEN with Host Rhina Valentin which aired March 18, 2011 and again on May 9, 2011 with Host Dr. Bob Lee of WBLS, an unforgettable experience that just goes to show how far he has already come to make a name for himself. As well as that, he has also appeared on radio interviews on WPFW 89.3 FM (Washington, DC), TOUCH 106.1 FM (Boston, MA) WERS 88.9 FM (Boston, MA) and WCUW 91.3 FM (Worcester, MA). Catch his upcoming Interview with Black Hat Ron from “On The Record” which Air’s the end of June 2011 and many more stations in the works. It is clear that his appeal is growing fast.

David has said of his work: “I was brought up in a very supportive family. My Mom and Dad have a minister, and through this ministry I’m able to grow. My parents would always expose me to a wealth of music as a child and although I learned a lot of the instruments by the self-thought method as I was growing up, it wasn’t until I was about age 9 that I actually attempted to play the piano which then led to the drums then guitar, and that was a real changing point for me.
Since then, my style has developed and I’ve incorporated other sounds and genres which have all made their way into “Angel”. The single is influenced by a personal experience and the changes that I’ve experienced recently in my life.”

With a CD collection that takes up an entire room, David refuses to restrict his influences to one genre. Instead, he has been influenced by numerous artists and genres of music from across the globe, including Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Usher, Ray Charles, Chris Brown and Stevie Wonder amongst many others.

David does not shy away from including his desire to succeed by references in his music, reflecting one of his other long-term interests: inspirational writing.
