Cody Jasper is a true born Texas Blue’s artist. It is not uncommon to walk along the world famous 6th Street in Austin, Texas and hear the harmonic and often mesmerizing hum and moan of Cody’s guitar.
His humble beginnings from the Texas Panhandle and the countless hours of playing in events and bar gigs eventually took the young Cody to Austin, Texas.
“Austin is a Mecca for musicians, if I ever really wanted to consume the life of a musician, I knew, I needed to try my hand with some of the most avid listeners in the world. I knew that coming to the ‘Live Music Capital of the World’ would allow me to transcend and expand my musical perspectives and abilities” recalls Cody.
In just 5 short months of Cody’s arrival he did just that…within this time period he racked up a resume that many artists in Austin could only dream about and very very few have accomplished.
By the time two months had passed he had already played in half a dozen bars on the famous Austin strip, and within 4 months he had solidified five residencies and continued to play when available in new venues lining the heart of Austin’s entertainment vessel.
It does not take one long to walk in and see why Cody has received such success and accolades from so many in the music industry. His rock skills often remind his audience of some the world’s greatest guitarists of all times.
There is rarely a concert that goes by when someone has not tried to compare the young Cody Jasper to the mix or merge of Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Bob Dylan, The Black Keys, and Woody Guthrie.
Currently Cody has had a full schedule of playing shows, recording his first album, solidifying band members and management, and various other appearances at special events and television. His EP will be released in early-mid November followed by a beginning of the year tour.
