Boomerocity loves introducing our visitors to great musical secrets before the rest of the world is aware of them. Such is the case with Cody Brooks. What turned me on to Brooks’ work is the raw, grimy, grittiness of his blues. Afterall, isn’t that supposed to be the blues?
The press release for his debut album, “First World Problems,” starts off by saying, “Gutbucket blues. Gypsy jazz. Back porch rock n’ roll. Cody Brooks plays it all, whipping up a raw, rootsy racket on his debut album, First World Problems.”
That’s a brilliant summary of Cody Brooks.
Cody is one of those few blues men who, when he talks, sounds the blues. The blues oozes from every pore of his body; in every sound in his voice; in the look in his eyes.
Cody Brooks is the new breed of blues man who lives the life of a journeyman blues artist.
