CODY JON

Few artists embody generational dysmorphia in the same way Cody Jon does. Growing up through the 2010s, raised on music of the 80s, inspired by the hits of the 90s and the visual aesthetic of the 2000s, Cody Jon is a temporal mish-mash. His songs are unapologetically hook-heavy showing a healthy respect for the boy bands of the 90s but self-produced with the zaniness of a kid who’s spent too long in his own bedroom in the microclimate of deep suburbia.

Those front and center pop hooks draw inspiration from an early diet of Fleetwood Mac and INXS and a later infatuation with 90s R&B icons Brandy and Aaliyah. Million dollar choruses recorded through a birthday present midi keyboard and produced on airdropped software, these are big songs made ‘bedroom’.

Since first debuting his temporal mash with ‘dirty dancing’, and ‘Becky’s Plan’ in 2022, Cody Jon continues to amass praise across triple j and Unearthed, iHeart Radio, MTV, Early Rising, ELLE Japan and more following his debut untied shoes EP. His dazzling live show which already includes debuts at BIGSOUND and SXSW in Austin was rounded out with his own headline tour following a Tai Verdes tour support, and performances alongside the likes of Gretta Ray, Peach PRC, and more.
