Applewood is acoustic Country/Americana music that features the vocals of Shelia Quattlebaum. The songs are well written "sonic movies" of everyday life as seen from the eyes of two people who have both loved and lost and had a blast along the way.
Wil Hodge and Shelia Quattlebaum came together as songwriters and as time passed they both saw the potentail for a CD. After recording a few songs in Wil's home studio, the Applewood CD started to take shape.
Wil Hodge: "If I had a female voice, it would be Shelia's. (Laughs) I got her voice stuck in my head and I wrote songs for her to sing. I sent them to her and she sent me back her interpretation of my ideas. Most were dead on what I heard in my head. The ones that were different were better than what I had intended. She's a smart cookie. A great singer can take a song and shape it in to a better song. That's Shelia's gift. I lucked out running in to her."
Applewood is based out of Atlanta, Georgia and welcomes comments from anyone who'll give them.
