In the carefree wilds of Venice Beach, singer-songwriter and poet Cody Simpson made the brave decision to detach from the pop music machine and go within to discover his pure artistry.
“I realized I wanted to reclaim what is mine: my artistry. To do this, I was a recluse for a few years. I practiced guitar, surfed, read voraciously, and filled several notebooks with poetry and lyrics.” the LA-based, Australian artist shares.
Cody is an intentional poet and songwriter who writes evocatively. His poems and lyrics evoke elemental imagery and explore subtexts of consumerism, unity, nature, freedom, rebellion, environmentalism and ocean conservation. As a songwriter, he weaves pop melodies into intriguing musical contexts, exploring contrasting genres, textures, and musical landscapes. He’s inspired by songwriters and poets such as Neil Young, Jack Johnson, Bob Dylan, Donavon Frankenreiter, Arthur Rimbaud, Charles Baudelaire, Allen Ginsberg, and Jack Kerouac among others.
Cody grew up a world away from Hollywood on the Gold Coast of Australia, where he grew up on the beach surfing, swimming and training as a junior lifeguard. By 18, Cody had earned global recognition as a pop artist. Yet, he felt the need to follow a deeper artistic and life calling. In 2017, Simpson was named the first UNDP (United Nations Development Program) Ocean Advocate.
Today, Cody is thriving as a fresh literary voice and boldly creative musician with a clear vision for his future.
