"I can honestly say that along with the experience of touring, writing, performing and recording, I have been molded deeply by life experiences, along with family, friends, and everyday events."
-Derrick Hodge

Derrick Hodge was born July 5, 1979 in Philadelphia, PA to Mary and Jackie Hodge. After living only a few years in Philadelphia, Hodge’s family moved to Willingboro, NJ, a quiet town a little more than 20 miles over the bridge.

Although Hodge’s development with string instruments was nurtured in the Willingboro schools he later attended, Hodge began studying electric guitar at the age of 7, inspired by the playing of West Philadelphia’s Beulah Baptist Church choir’s bassist, Joel Ruffin. As a child, Hodge would travel with his mother back and forth to Philadelphia because she sang in the Beulah Ensemble. Derrick, as it was then, could always be found by his mother’s side on those trips to Philly, uncovering his spirituality, and discovering the power of the bass. 

A year later, Hodge switched to electric bass guitar and began playing in the elementary school concert band and orchestra. In junior high, he was introduced to the upright contrabass. At the time, there were no bass instructors so Hodge learned the instrument by using his electric bass technique and by watching the 1st and 2nd violins sitting across from him. And for jazz band, he just played the upright bass as if it were an electric bass. He also used this electric bass technique for his Junior High Jazz band, disallowing the lack of instructional resources to be his hindrance.

Hodge’s involvement in the church complimented his formal training. He was recruited to play for the Cathedral of Love Church at the age of 10 by choir and music director Lady Phillips after seeing him perform at a school concert. This opportunity gave him invaluable experience about playing by ear, with feeling, and most importantly, with meaning.

In high school, Derrick laid the foundation for becoming the busy sought after talent he is today. He participated in the orchestra directed by Joseph Biancosino, and later joined the Willingboro High School Jazz Band and Marching Band directed by Jeffrey Lesser. He participated in the South Jersey High School Orchestra, Mid-Atlantic Grammy Band, won the Berklee College of Music High School Band Competition (1996), and won the Berklee College of Music Outstanding Soloist Award (1996 & 1997).

Hodge has also played with various mass choirs through his teenage years, and most notably, with the great James Moore of the Mississippi Mass Choir.  Hodge later joined Bethany Baptist Church (he still fellowships there) where he was introduced to producer and songwriter James Poyser, Isaac Phillips, Brian Moore Frazier, and bassist Jethanial Nixon, among others.
 
Hodge received his Bachelor’s Degree in Music from Temple University's Esther Boyer College of Music where he studied Jazz Composition and Performance.  He studied acoustic and electric bass privately with Vince Fay.  He was also involved in the Temple University Jazz Band and Small Ensemble, conducted by Terell Stafford, and was the first Jazz major to participate in the Temple University Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Luis Biava, and New Music Chamber Orchestra.  He was also a student at the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Summer Academy, under the instruction of Christian McBride and Loren Schoenberg.  Along with formal collegiate training and experience, he performed with the Temple University Gospel Choir, among others.

Hodge has performed and/or recorded with Terell Stafford, Donald Byrd, Bootsie Barnes, Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, John P. Kee and the New Life Community Choir, Kenny Lattimore, Q-Tip, Mos Def, Timbaland, Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild, Gerald Levert, Common, Kanye West, Andre 3000, Terence Blanchard, Mulgrew Miller, Clark Terry, and others.  He has also recorded for various film works and has composed for artists including Terence Blanchard, Q-Tip, and others.
