A young American singer-songwriter, Cody Lynn Boyd is heavily influenced by songwriting icons, film, poetry, musicals and cartoons.
As a child, he grew up near the beach in Galveston, Texas. A city known for many ghost sightings and haunted buildings. It was as a child that animated and live action Disney film musicals molded his interest in music. CLB would also grow his fascination with spooky stuff by television shows like The Twilight Zone, Scooby-Doo and Courage the Cowardly Dog. Just before his teens, CLB and his family moved due to a strong hurricane by the name of Rita, causing him to relocate to the Fort Worth, Texas area. In his teens, an acoustic guitar was given as a gift by a friend and very soon CLB began writing his own songs. Bob Dylan and Bright Eyes would become a big influence early in his craft. Later on musical artists like Tom Waits and filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick would also play a big roll in his creativity.
CLB dressing in all black is due to his minimalism purposes and obsession with cartoon characters always wearing the same outfit. His sound is a product of a large branch of inspiration; but mostly stems from his folk roots. His songwriting incorporates many themes including religion, romance, horror, humor and society. The interest in the surreal often shines through in his work, whether subtly or not, these elements are a key component in both his studio and live performances.
