A lyrical and emotive performer, Nashville-based Cody Fry is a gifted singer/songwriter whose music touches upon soulful pop, jazz, electronics, and orchestral balladry.
A native of Northfield, Illinois, Fry grew up in a creative family with a father who wrote commercial jingles for a living. By his teens, he was writing and recording his own songs, and ultimately went on to study music at Nashville's Belmont University. Graduating in 2012, he released his debut album, Audio:Cinema, and spent several years as a backing musician for other artists. A second album, Keswick, followed in 2014, after which he made it into the early audition rounds on the 14th season of American Idol. Although he received positive feedback from the judges, he failed to make the Top 20 finalists. Nonetheless, the exposure helped build his fan base, and in 2017 he returned with his third solo album, Flying, featuring the single "Nobody But You." The album found Fry drawing upon his love of film scoring and coloring his songs with full orchestration. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi
