Metal Chick Podcast – John Hodge – Vocalist for Crush Point, Heavy Metal Cover Band Crush Point.
This week I have the pleasure of chatting with one of my favorite local musicians, John Hodge – lead vocalist of metal cover band Crush Point. He shares his story of how he went from sax player to screamer and how he answered an ad for lead vocalist on a whim that would change his life forever.
We talk about how a band that covers music by Slayer, Pantera and has a hard time getting gigs. And about how they are making a slow transition into original music.
About the creative process and who is doing the behind the scenes heavy lifting for the album, as well as how they are melding the different metal styles so that the overall album has something for everyone.
He shares his #1 tip for transitioning from a cover band to an original band.
The intro stinger is Crush Point’s “One Round In The Chamber” off their upcoming release “Another Day Down” slated for a fall release.
