Biography

The Codi Jordan Band is a Reggae Rock band running in the same vein as popular acts Sublime, The Dirty Heads and Slightly Stoopid. Hailing from the greater Salt Lake City area the band has toured relentlessly across the west spreading their homegrown "mountain town meets the Beach" sound across 12 states and hundreds of stages. Front man Codi Jordan grew up in the small ski town of Eden, Utah. Both of Codi's parents grew up in Southern California but opted to move to Utah in search of mountains and snow. For Codi, having family in Southern California led to a fascination and love for the southern CA lifestyle, the Ocean and the budding reggae/rock/surf/punk scene. Codi began writing lyrics and composing music at the age of 12 years old; a few years later he was introduced to the recording studio by a local hip-hop artist who noticed Codi playing and singing at a local house party. The "Vacation" CD came out in 2008 and was voted local album of the year by Weber State University's local radio station. Codi quickly enlisted Bass player Cameron Goldsberry, Drummer Jonny Knoder both from Ogden, UT and Lead Guitar Player Mike Lee also from the Eden area. Once the band was complete a group effort was put forth in the studio. The Album Positivity soon followed in 2011. The band has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Dashboard Confessional, The Dirty Heads, The Neon Trees, The Expendables, Trevor Hall, and Tomorrows Bad Seeds and many more. The band has also toured on several dates in support of Katchafire and Passafire.
