Creating positive and passionate music has not only become a mission but more so a movement for Orlando, Florida based musician D. Cody. His style is a stirring blend of R&B, Jazz, & Gospel with a touch of Soul. Born Dorian Cody in the small town of Yalaha, Florida; the artist now known as D. Cody knew music was his destiny at the age of six when he began singing in the church choir. The passion for pursuing music grew stronger for D. Cody when he began writing songs at the age of 10 & formed a singing group a short time after that. The group known as “Something Special” began performing at local venues and electrified the crowds while gaining more fans along the way. The thrill of performing live guided D. Cody to turn the young group he was with in to a popular urban band called Voice of Soul yet the desire to be a solo artist always loomed in the back of his mind.
At age 18 D. Cody intensely followed his destiny to sing & became a solo artist who quickly began to impress listeners with his amazing ability to arrange, produce, write, and sing songs that would leave his audience captivated by what they heard. D. Cody sites some of his main influences as Anita Baker, 112, Joe, Brian McKnight, Raphael Saadiq, Commissioned, Mint Condition, Dave Hollister, & Kenny Latimore. While putting the finishing touches on his solo album titled “Us against the world” that is soon to be released, D. Cody is currently the front man for a local band called “Jam Session”. D. Cody lends lead vocals backed by his bass player J. Stevens, drummer Dominic Thomas, and keyboard players Glenn Thomas, & Ed Wiggins. Jam Session has played at various local venues and charity events including breast cancer foundations and the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. D. Cody plans to release a couple of his new singles prior to the official release of his debut album soon.
D. Cody has one of the most soulful voices that I have heard in the music industry. He has easily captured the essence of what it means to be an R&B entertainer with his infusion of Urban, Gospel and Jazz into his music.
