Kody West & Austin Meade
Just one year after his first EP “Higher Ground” Kody and the band released their debut album “Green” in April of 2017 and found themselves quickly gaining a large following of loyal fans. In the past 3 years he and his band have traveled across the country headlining shows, as well as serving as the supporting act for artist like Charlie Robison, Whiskey Myers , and Koe Wetzel. They have now released their sophomore record “Overgrown” which was recorded in Kody’s hometown of Denton, Texas. Kody’s drive for Touring and live shows keep wheels always turning and the band always working. Try to keep up!
Thanks to his metal- and classic-rock loving dad, Meade got to see bands like Judas Priest and worshipped Whitesnake. In junior high he related to the intense emo-rock of Paramore and Fall Out Boy, and the power of songwriters like John Mayer. Yet, thanks to plainspoken but deep heartland songwriters like Tom Petty, and cutting his teeth touring in the Texas and Oklahoma Red Dirt scene, Meade’s music overflows with wide-open soulfulness. He was a drummer for years, even teaching to pay the bills, but Meade found his true voice when he began playing guitar as a teen in his pastor-father’s church. Those experiences lend both a gravitas and rebelliousness to Meade’s songs and self. Inspired by the rock music that molded Meade’s adolescence comes his current singles that include ‘Happier Alone’ ‘Cave In,’ ‘DÉJÀ VU,’ AND ‘Dopamine Drop’ from THE NEWLY RELEASED record ‘Black SheeP.’
