About Coming Home

CD dropped on Sept. 14, 2018!

About the CD:

Ever since losing my sight completely, the way in which I experience my surroundings has been quite unique.  Instead of everything going black, what I see in my mind's eye is extremely colorful and textured.  Every moment is filled with an almost psychedelic swirl of blues, greens, reds, purples and gold against an expansive, seemingly endless backdrop of blacks and grays.   When I set out to write music for this project, my goal was to "paint" a picture with sound.  It's my attempt at reverse engineering my visual experience into a sonic pallet, where the instruments and timbres are the different colored paints. The title "Coming Home" deals with the many ways I've experienced "home," globally, and the compositions serve to illuminate the various emotions attached to each unique location. I hope you enjoy the CD as much as we enjoyed making it!

"It has been such an honor to witness Justin's journey, not only through producing our film, Keep On Keepin' On, but through executive producing his new album, "Coming Home" alongside him and my brother Derrick Hodge.  I don't believe that meeting people is left to chance, because nothing else but divine intervention could've brought everyone together to create this album:  The perfect blend of trust, love and respect...and some of the best musicians on the planet!!" -Quincy Jones

"Every part of the process creating 'Coming Home' with Justin was magical in large part because he knew what artistic message he wanted to convey.  I'm hyped that people will get to hear this album and go on a journey into the mind of a truly unique artist and sonic storyteller" -Derrick Hodge
