Cody Pennington is an acoustic singer-songwriter who, while originally from Nashville, is currently playing venues throughout the East of England and surrounding regions. He has done extensive touring throughout the Eastern seaboard of America, Turkey, the city streets of Athens, Greece, and many other countries with consistent success, all the while steadily gaining a loyal following.
As a veteran of live music performance for nearly a decade, his shows are energetic and always keep the crowd tapping their feet. He brings this energy to his recently released EP, To Be Me. The five track EP is a stripped down project of honestly sung songs that are memorable and personal, yet relatable; reminiscent of other singer songwriters such as Jason Mraz and Eric Hutchinson.
The melodically vibrant tracks are often at opposition to lyrics that are sad and introspective, dealing with topics such as lost love ("Missing You") and relationship struggles ("I'm Afraid"). The songs on the EP give one the feeling that Cody is sharing intimate pieces of himself (the opening sigh prior to "To Be Me" is telling) and if that is the case, then Cody is someone that you definitely wouldn't mind getting to know.
To Be Me is available here.
