DROP THE MIC – ATL Gal Tsadiqwah’s Divalicious Interview with Rising Songster #WBWD Kody!By Tsadiqwah | June 11, 2018 | Lifestyle
Watch out Justin Bieber and Sam Smith! There’s another dope white boy we’re digging and gals we found him right in the heart of Chocolate City, the A-T-L! Hot, new pop star Kody is bringing a sultry mix of R&B, soul, with a splash of EDM and reggae on his new debut EP entitled “Inception.”
The 21-year-old classically-trained pianist and singer, who works a full-time job while recording music at night, says he’s not just a rich white boy with privileges; music is something that lives in his blood!
At a private listening party inside Atlanta’s infamous Patchwork Studios, the birthplace of platinum-selling acts like John Legend and Keyshia Cole, a small group of industry insiders listened to Kody’s songs that take you from the beaches of Jamaica to the folding table in your laundry room.
Listen to all five tracks from “Inception” and you won’t hear lyrics like the B-word or N-word. Kody says he wants a clean, organized sound that challenges and channels emotions but not in a disrespectful way, a sound that took him time to develop an artist. On the first three tracks: “One,” “You and Me” and “Time to Waste,” you’ll hear an old soul belting out tunes to you. Kody says his music is for sex, bad breakups, cleaning up days or just having fun! “Inception is the beginning of where we’re allowed to go, Kody says. Best explained as the birth of ________ (feel free to fill in the blank based with an adjective that describes your best self)!
Raised in a military family, Kody says his inspiration for making music everyone can vibe to comes from having all types of friends from around the world, from places like Guyana, Trinidad and Amsterdam. Kody says he takes time out to really live, to create meaningful memories and to learn from other artists. Kody is currently signed to an independent label run by his parents. That’s right – his parents are the brains behind Corps Dynamic Music!
