Cody Marlowe

songwriter / singer / producer / musician

 

American born singer-songwriter and roots-rock artist Cody Marlowe found his inspiration at an early age in the soulful sounds of B.B. King, Merle Haggard, and The Allman Brothers Band. In the small town of Clermont, Georgia, Cody was born into a family of music. Marlowe was taught piano at a young age by his great-aunt and his mother, took guitar lessons from his grandpa and uncle, and was influenced vocally by his grandma, aunt, mother, and sister. Katie (sister) sings with Cody in concerts and on many recordings. Marlowe’s songs explore the polarities of good and evil in an intriguing blend of lyrics featuring lost loves and hopeful musings.

His 2013 album, “Silver and Gold,” is his third release since his first EP, “Where You Are,” released in 2010 and his first full length, “Eighty Nine,” released in 2011. For "Silver and Gold," Marlowe teamed up with brothers, producer/drummer Kevin Sellors and bass player Ryan Sellors, to form the back-up band the Dead Flowers. During the recording process, Marlowe recruited Joey Huffman on organ (Hank Jr., Matchbox 20) and Nathan Bedingfield on electric guitar (Aaron Shust). “Silver and Gold” is a return to the roots of rock n roll, country, blues, and honest songwriting; reminiscent of Tom Petty and the Black Crowes but with a modern edge inspired by childhood in the 90’s.

Released in 2016, the EP entitled "Songs For Your Television" contains six songs; four original tunes and two public domain classics featuring their personal interpretation. Head Held High is featured on the TLC aired program "Welcome to Myrtle Manor." Rockin' Robin and Nobody Knows You were both used in independent short-films by Oakey Productions.

Cody, and his band, regularly perform throughout the southeast United States. They can commonly be found in such venues in Atlanta as Eddie's Attic, Vinyl, and Smith's Olde Bar. Follow Cody Marlowe on Facebook, Instagram, or visit www.codymarlowe.com/shows for details on live shows.
