Bio

Growing up in Brampton, Ontario with a family of non-musicians, Cody Wright definitely took his time before he realized where he wanted to take his life. He started playing guitar around the age of 12, but never considered it more than a hobby until the end of highschool. "I always wanted to be a lawyer, because I had a way with words, especially in convincing people to see things my way." That changed when he really started realizing that all his friends knew him as the "Music Guy". Always talking about new records, or old ones his Dad had lent him, and knowing obscure trivia about some of the biggest artists in the world. This all contributed into Cody working on his solo debut, Rapture Loud.
Cody had started out always playing rock, punk, metal, anything where he could hide behind his guitar, amp, and his Dave Grohl-inspired projected voice. Various bands in high school all shared this ethos, but at the same time, Cody didn't want to be labeled and typecast, so he expanded his music elsewhere. He started incorporating folk and acoustic rock, and exploring the space this lower dynamic gave him. Artists like Neil Young, Foo Fighters, White Buffalo, Jack Johnson and Pearl Jam, all thrown together into a melting pot. The result, a very wide selection of music, with elements from all his favorite genres, but all weighted down with his passionate guitar playing and honest lyrics.

It wasn't as easy as it sounded, as there were always some hitches in the process. "I had no faith in my material. I didn't think people would be interested. And I was okay with that, I was just doing it because I liked it. Writing was relaxing." His attempted bands would never hold together, because while he was planning on playing music for a career, his bandmates didn't have the same conviction. That's when he started picking up other instruments, just so he would be able to write and play his arrangements himself.

He then adopted the model he still uses today. "I write the songs, but whoever likes them, can come play on them. I won't have a permanent band, unless they really like the songs, and I really like them." No grudges or hardships from people leaving, just the music. He preaches honesty with his music."I'm not the best singer, or the best guitarist, but I'm deadly honest about everything I say."
