Cody King


Born in Buffalo, Minnesota, Cody King learned from an early age the importance of hard work and perseverance. Growing up in a broken family, and bounced from one home to the next, he was forced to face a number of personal challenges that could have easily derailed his life. However, with true grit and determination he chose to rise above the chaos and thrive as a young man determined to make a positive impact in this world. As a teenager, Cody turned to music as a way to escape the difficulties of his childhood. He found peace, hope and inspiration in the cadence and lyrics of some of his favorite artists, including Chris Brown, Usher, Ne-Yo, Mario, 2Pac, Biggy, and Eminem. Cody’s passion for music is what fuels his life today. After suffering a serious car accident several years back Cody emerged from the trauma with a new, more focussed and determined outlook on life - not wanting to leave this earth without making a name for himself in the music industry. Now living in Montana, Cody has set out to build his career as a recording artist, producer, and promoter from the ground up. He hopes that the personal struggles he has had to endure and overcome will be an inspiration to other young people in similar circumstances.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music has always been my escape from reality growing up and now that I am grown its become a way for me to express my emotions and voice my opinion seeing I never had the chance too when I was young.

What is your music dream?

The start of my dream is to be creating/performing/spreading my message all across the world that seeing we only have one life to live, we might as well make the most of it while doing everything that makes us the most happy!

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I would love to start my own record label specifically for all the underground artists out there like myself that have the talent but lack the opportunity. Once the label is running smoothly enough I'd next start up and host a bunch of concerts and charity events for all those out there that are less fortunate than everyone else. That's just the start.

8 Mile - Eminem

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Eminem, Chris Brown, Neyo, Usher, Chingy, Chamillionair, 2pac, Biggy Smalls, Tyga, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Micheal Jackson

What inspires you to make music?

I feel like I'm in a whole other world where there's nothing but peace when I'm creating. One of the many reasons is also that It helps me release my feelings since that's always been a struggle for me growing up. I had to learn to be tough so normally I just keep all my emotions locked up tight. Making music fixes that for me!

What is the message you want to send with your music?

That we all are beautiful. That we all deserve to live out our lives being happy. That no matter how low you started from you should never give up on your dreams. Don't ever let anyone tell you who you should be. How to be your own independent person. That we are all equal. That there's gotta be more to life then us all herding around like sheep. ect...

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I have never had the chance to perform in front of an audience yet "unless you count my gf and all my friends lol" But I know I'd feel a mix of fear and excitement during my first performance! lol
