About Nick J.D. Hodgson

Indie rock singer/songwriter Nick J.D. Hodgson made a name for himself as the drummer/backing vocalist for the Kaiser Chiefs before embarking on a solo career that delves into indie and neo-psychedelia. Hodgson played a central role in the Kaiser Chiefs, helping bring the band together and co-writing some of their biggest hits, including "I Predict a Riot" and "Ruby." In 2012, after three albums with the Kaiser Chiefs, Hodgson parted ways with them. In the years that followed, he worked as a songwriter and a producer with several other musicians, including Mark Ronson, Hurts, John Newman, and Shirley Bassey. In early 2017, he started to write songs for himself, leading to his debut single "Suitable" later the same year. After a year of penning his own tracks, Hodgson released his debut solo full-length, 2018's Tell Your Friends. ~ Liam Martin
