Cody Roth is a singer/songwriter native to South Mississippi. - “I’ve always had a love for creating music. Even as a kid pedaling my bike around the neighborhood I’d often space out while making up some ridiculous tune in my head. Of course I had no way to transfer that idea into music; that came later. When I was twelve I started taking piano lessons somewhat reluctantly (Thanks Mom!). Piano lit the spark inside of me to create the music I was hearing in my head. That spark didn’t truly ignite until my classically trained brother started teaching me guitar when I was fourteen. I timidly began squeaking out tunes when I was home alone, ditching my homework whenever possible. A few years later I joined a local church’s youth band,“Lifejam”. That had to be one of the most exciting times of my life! I began composing lead guitar parts to accompany the rhythm instruments, and I got to sing lead on a few songs (it was great practice!). We started getting gigs all over the Mississippi coast, playing at churches, youth rallies, retreats, and festivals every chance we could get. We even got to travel to Atlanta, Georgia to play for a talent competition at “Atlanta Fest”. My experience with Lifejam gave me the confidence and skill to start gigging on my own, and I grabbed a few of my buds from the church band and put together a rock group, “Step Up”. I am now an independent artist hoping to inspire folks with my tunes. I love playing a real funky song that just makes everybody want to jump up and dance! There’s nothing like it. Sometimes after the energy gets going I like bringing down the mood to something more reflective, something that calls its listeners to make a change for the better in their actions or lives. Music is God’s gift to me, and I hope to share that gift with others. Enjoy!”
