Waterfront Blues Fest and Soul'd Out Present:
HILLSTOMP + TEVIS HODGE JR


Portland Oregon junkbox blues duo HILLSTOMP, infamous for digging through the dumps and forgotten backwoods of American music, recycling traditional elements into a refreshing and distinctive brand of do-it-yourself hill country blues stomp. North Mississippi trance blues, a bit of Appalachia, and a dash of punkabilly come clanging and tumbling from assorted buckets, cans and BBQ lids, all drenched in rambunctious slide guitar. Somehow it works.

Despite their homemade instruments and novel approach, Hillstomp is no novelty act.

Hillstomp’s memorable live performances tap into a magic that cannot be rehearsed, converting outlaws and traditionalists alike from skeptics into preachers.

TEVIS HODGE JR

Well versed in multiple blues idioms such as the Piedmont, Delta, Texas, urban and country blues styles, He also dips into jazz, jug band, folk and even old timey novelty tunes. Tevis Hodge Jr's  repertoire is an eclectic mix while his performance oozes with originality and passion.  Adding his own flare to the songs he covers, he seamlessly presents originals that can mingle with the classics and stay true to the source.

Tevis has enjoyed a career opening for top acts from Robert Cray to Living Colour, and performing onstage with such acts as Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary,) vaudeville legend Baby Gramps, "Boogie-Cat" Norman Sylvester, guitar virtuoso Mary Flower and soul extraordinaire Ural Thomas to name a few.
