"Goodbye Cody can best be described as Minus the Bear’s rebellious little brother who spends lots of time with Modest Mouse...Recently at the Red Room
Goodbye Cody played a show and shared some new songs with their fans. The reaction from the audience was overwhelming, and anticipation for their upcoming CD is higher than ever. Goodbye Cody puts on a very enthusiastic live show, their set is tight and their
chemistry as a band is very apparent."

Bio

Goodbye Cody was formed by Luke Hurtado and Daniel Beene in 2004, as a high school ndependent study class project. They wrote song after song, tossing out the trash and keeping the rest. Brian Hesch is the third drummer the band has seen, and once he joined the group, they played their first
show under the name Nango, and their second under the name Projects For Time. Eventually, Goodbye Cody emerged. Josh Bellacicco joined the band about one year in, after countless auditions for bassists who either wanted to be Flea, or the
guitarist. More shows were played as the four began to develop not only a substantial repertoire, but an increasingly unique sound. With the addition of Ross White in 2006 on keys, Goodbye Cody has begun a new era of songwriting, aiming to develop songs that both stand alone with an acoustic guitar and one singer, and incorporate the entire band seamlessly.

It's nearly impossible to define music rigidly according to genre, but Goodbye Cody can best be understood as an experimental blend of rock , folk, and shoegaze, with an undeniable hint of pop music. Sometimes the songs are mundane, sometimes they carry meaning, but where the band tends to place there concern is in striving to better themselves as musicians, songwriters, and entertainers.

Neither 2004 nor 2005 saw much activity from Goodbye Cody, who at the time viewed their musical endeavors as no more than a good time in a garage or back room somewhere. Finally, in 2006, Goodbye Cody began to play shows in
Albuquerque, opening for some of the most prominent local bands, playing Albuquerque's Summerfest, and running their own shows at the DIY space, SolArts. In 2007, the band played
more shows by March than in all of 2006, and see no signs of stopping. They have played at Las Cruces's KRUXFest, as one of the main acts, and have been asked to headline their
upcoming Birthday Bash in September 2007.

Three years have passed since Hurtado and Beene played their first note together, and the five will play many more as Goodbye Cody
