Cody Robinson has been playing music since rocking out to Peruvian flute bands on his plastic guitar as a toddler. As he grew so did his instrumental repertoire‰ÛÒfrom piano to drums, trumpet, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, slide guitar, bass guitar, and synthesizers‰ÛÒall while pursuing his passion for singing. At York School (a college prep in Monterey, California), while Cody sang in the a cappella chamber choir and in award winning regional choirs, he started writing his own songs. After forming his first band, Keller Avenue, he quickly developed a fan base with shows at community schools, airplay on local radio, and a local TV appearance, performing for audiences of up to 300. As the group was preparing to disband for college, Cody recorded his debut solo album, ‰ÛÏMy Side,‰Û� with producer Jamen Brooks in Salt Lake City, Utah. In July 2009, just one month after his York School graduation, Cody won 5th place among thousands of applicants in the nationwide Sennheiser My Song Contest with ‰ÛÏLose Control,‰Û� the lead track off his solo album. Cody spent the 2009-2010 school year enrolled in the music program at Brigham Young University honing his songwriting and composition skills. In addition to studying Cody performed regularly, playing shows in Provo and Park City. In November, he made his live television debut on Park City TV. In December, he was chosen to perform his song ‰ÛÏUntil‰Û� at BYU‰Ûªs prestigious Annual Songwriter‰Ûªs Showcase in the Madsen Recital Hall. His performance was recorded and later released on Tantara Recordså¨. After his freshman year Cody left BYU to focus on developing his career as a singer songwriter. Splitting his time between Park City, Salt Lake City, Provo, and Denver, he continued to broaden his horizons as a solo artist. He played for weddings, restaurants, bars, charity events, and on live radio for Park City‰Ûªs KPCW. During this time he collaborated with a number of local musicians, most frequently Justin Bishop, who accompanied Cody‰Ûªs vocals and guitars with his percussion and drums. In August 2012, seeking a change in scenery and some firsthand music industry experience, Cody took his talents to Brooklyn, New York. While there Cody played many venues as a solo artist (e.g., Brooklyn Nights in Brooklyn, The Belmont Lounge at Union Square, Sullivan Hall in Greenwich Village, and Deshai Williams‰Ûª Showcases) before forming a new band, The Stranger, with bassist Patrick John Kane. Opting not to sign with a record label, The Stranger instead chose to focus on improving their live shows, culminating in a performance at Legion in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in late May 2013. The group then went on hiatus when Cody returned to Utah to resume creative collaborations with Justin Bishop. Now back in Salt Lake City, Cody is rehearsing a slate of brand new blues and rock n‰Ûª roll influenced songs for his second album. He and Justin are currently auditioning musicians for their new band. You can also find him performing solo gigs at restaurants throughout the Heber/ParkCity, Salt Lake, and Utah Valleys.
