Kerry Hodge is a true blue Aussie bushman who began singing and writing country music at a young age, winning his first talent quest at twelve years old.

In 1977 Kerry wrote and recorded a song about the great pacer Paleface Adios, and performed it live on pay television in 2002. Between 1999 and 2001, he competed in the worlds richest singing competition at the Marrickville RSL Club, making the semi finals each year. Out of 2000 entrants he was placed into the final 12 each time.

Kerry has performed with some of the best country singers in Australia, including Gordon (The Pub with No Beer) Parsons, Lee Kernaghan, The Wolverines and many more.

Kerry has performed and won awards at The Tamworth Country & Western Music Festival, The Parke's Jamboree and received a special award from Nashville Tennisee for his compositions. 'The Singing Hodge Family' won best group in Tamworth with the song 'Amazing Grace'.

Kerry held a residency at the Mandurama Hotel (NSW) for 2 months in 2003, where the publician recognised his talents and financed Kerry to purchase equipment in order that he could continue to perform live and record CD's.

Kerry can be regularly found busking around Sydney. A street performer through and through, Kerry is always ready with an Aussie quip and joke.
