At just 21, Cody Matlock has already been paying his dues on the Atlanta blues scene for nearly a decade. A chance encounter with Jonny Lang when he was 12 took him from a kid with a passion for guitar and put him on the path to being a professional musician. A year later his dad was carting him around to local blues jams. The novelty of a 13 year old kid joining his elders on stage in smoky bars was soon replaced by a real appreciation for Cody's hard work, dedication, and talent. Since then, Cody has grown into a killer guitarist with a voice and stage presence that are intensely captivating.
Increasingly a fixture at some of Atlanta's most iconic blues halls, Cody can often be seen at Northside Tavern, Fat Matt's, Blind Willie'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. When he's not performing, he's hard at work honing all aspects of his craft and working on his forthcoming first album.
