A young American singer-songwriter, Cody Lynn Boyd is influenced by songwriters, films, musicals, cartoons and comic books.
His early years he grew up near the beach in Galveston, Texas, a city historically known for The Great Storm of 1900 and ghost sightings. As a child, CLB became fascinated with entertainment outlets consisting of and similar to Scooby-Doo, The Twilight Zone, Mary Poppins, Aristocats, and Marvel/D.C comics. A strong hurricane named Rita caused him and his family to relocate to the North Texas region. In his teens, an acoustic guitar was given as a gift by a friend and very soon CLB began writing his own songs. Songwriters like Bob Dylan and Tom Waits would become strong influences early in his craft.
His sound is product of a large branch of inspirations, but mostly stems from his folk roots. Keywords often used in articles to explain CLB's sound are eerie, atmospheric, mystic, documented and poetic. His abstract and strange outlook reflects from his love for filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick and Quentin Tarantino. His recordings range from gritty distorted circus instruments with old radio vocal effects all the way down to using a more polished modern approach. His songwriting also incorporates many themes including religion, romance, horror and social observations. 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.
