Cody Rowe was born in Dallas, Texas on March 1st, 1980. He moved to Fredericksburg in 2003 and began songwriting and singing at local dance halls and bars. In search of a music career, Cody relocated to The Live Music Capital of the World, Austin, Texas in 2009. Living out of the trunk of his car and frequenting the Steiner Ranch Steakhouse, he met singer/songwriter Rod Williams and Rod’s executive producer, Eric Anonsen. After hearing Cody get up and sing some of his songs, Eric approached him and offered to do a CD for him. The guys teamed up with multi-Grammy Award winner Randy Miller and Paul Soroski to produce and engineer the CD at Paul’s Walrus Studios in Austin. They brought in Gary Herman (bass) and Arty Passes (steel guitar and background vocals) from the Kevin Fowler Band, Brendan Anthony (fiddle, mandolin) from the Pat Green Band, Alex Geismar (drums) of the band Vallejo, Ken Reynolds on guitars, and assorted other members of the Texas music family. Randy Miller contacted a couple of very successful songwriters he knows, MTM member (and 2011 TMA Nominee) Tim Nichols, and Troy McConnell, and solicited a couple of songs from each to work with in addition to Cody’s own songs. With this all-star cast, the team has produced a highly entertaining, multi-textured CD combining Texas Country and Americana into such tracks as “Walking On By”, “Texas State of Mind”, “Half A Heart”, “Little White Lies”, “Hard On The Whisky”, “Caveman”, and even found room to make a honky-tonk cover of Jerry Jeff Walker and Chris Wall’s song “Trashy Women”. All this effort came to fruition as Cody’s first CD, TEXAS STATE OF MIND.
