David Ryan Harris & David Hodges present Story Hour

By way of Los Angeles and Nashville, music royalty David Ryan Harris and David Hodges bring their showcase The Story Hour to Australia for the first time, sharing some of their most successful songs, and the story behind how they were written.

Between 2011 and 2016, The Story Hour happened over 12 occasions in Los Angeles to an intimate crowd of tastemakers. Songs like Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years, Pink’s Try, Adele’s Someone Like You, and many others were performed in this small writer’s round at an intimate home above Los Angeles.

The Story Hour comes to Australia for the first time for shows in both Sydney and Melbourne. The Story Hour Australia will be an evening of performance and story telling for an intimate crowd.

Singer/songwriter/producer David Ryan Harris does everything with soul. Whether it be in early bands such as Follow For Now and Brand New Immortals or over the course of six full-length solo albums, he tells stories that resonate. He has carried this same spirit while performing with the likes of John Mayer and Dave Matthews and producing/writing Grammy nominated LPs for artists like India Arie and Guy Sebastian, with whom he co-wrote hit song “Battle Scars”. And most recently with artists such as Aloe Blac, Cristina Perri, Hunter Hayes, Phillip, Phillips and Seth Ennis.

For his latest solo LP, Songs For Other People, he tapped the talents of drummer Terrence Clark, keyboard player Zach Ray, and Grammy Award-winning producer Mike Elizondo [Eminem, Dr. Dre, Maroon 5] on bass. DRH spent much of 2017 headlining North America as well as performing with John Mayer on his The Search For Everything World Tour. 2018 will bring new music and a return to the stages of Australia.

David Hodges is a multi-platinum Grammy and BMI award winning, Golden Globe nominated, songwriter & producer. David cut his teeth as one of the founding members of rock act Evanescence. Their debut album went on to sell over 18 million copies, but in the height of the band’s success, he left to focus on songwriting and production. Over the past decade, David has worked with some of the biggest artist’s in the world from writing their hits to creating successful end titles for film.

From the haunting piano melodies of Evanescence’s My Immortal to Christina Perri’s 8 million selling Twilight end title, A Thousand Years… Hodges signature sound starts on the piano and can be heard across many of the song he’s written. His song Bring Me To Life, from Evanescence is still one of the biggest rock songs of all time. David also co-wrote smash singles Kelly Clarkson’s Because of You, Daughtry’s What About Now, Carrie Underwood’s See You Again, David Archuleta’s Crush, Ben Rector’s Brand New, 5 Seconds of Summer’s Jet Black Heart, and many others including charting records with Blink 182, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum and others.
