Dakota Hodge on SoundBetter

I began touring as a session drummer at the age of 14!

I am a producer/artist/songwriter located in Los Angeles, CA. I'm proficient in Logic Pro X. Since 2012, I have toured and written with over a dozen artists. I write and produce songs in genres including pop, rock, orchestral, and more. I fell in love with music as a kid and I never looked back. Every single project I've been a part of has been better than the last and I can't wait for the next one! You can contact me with any questions.
