At just 22, Cody Matlock is already hailed as a widely-popular, seasoned veteran in Atlanta’s live music community having paid his dues gigging in the blues scene for nearly a decade.
Increasingly a fixture at some of the Georgia’s most iconic blues halls, the soul singer-songwriter can often be seen at Northside Tavern, Blind Willie's, Fat Matt's, and Darwin's, lighting up the stage with a range of songs from graveyard blues classics to 90s hits to soulful originals. No matter the genre, era, or style, Cody infuses every song with a measure of soul, calling on influences like James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Al Green, and Prince.
Cody kicked off the summer of 2018 opening for Lalah Hathaway at Center Stage Theatre and performing at the sold-out Oysterfest in downtown Atlanta. His upcoming gigs include a headlining night at Eddie’s Attic and a mainstage slot at Virginia-Highland Summerfest. When he’s not performing, Cody is hard at work honing all aspects of his craft and working on his forthcoming debut EP, which is slated to be released this fall.
Other previous gigs include: The Masquerade (Atlanta), DeSoto Theater (Rome), Vinyl (Atlanta), Smith’s Olde Bar (Atlanta), and the Georgia Swarm Professional Lacrosse team (Duluth).
His current band lineup consists of GRAMMY Award-winning keyboardist Michael Westbrooks (Ray Charles, Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown), drummer Daniel Harper (Little G. Weevil, Michael Ziab), bassist Brandon Boone (Col. Bruce Hampton, Grut), and percussionist Tony Erice (Taste).
