The 19-year-old musician chilled out on the beach with his family and took in an outdoor yoga class before hitting the water for some paddleboarding.
“Ever since I can remember, Iâ€™ve been writing rhymes, stories, poems, and that kind of thing. I would enter my poems into the school contests, it was called Pegasus Writing Competitions or something. Every year, I would get 2nd or 3rd place for my grade for the little poems and stories I would write. When I started playing guitar more seriously I was like, ‘Hang on a second, I can actually sing these with melodies and make songs out of them,’” Cody revealed to Untitled magazine.
He continued about getting back to his roots, “When I came over here, I got really overwhelmed by all of these people that wanted to write with me and for me, so thatâ€™s when I started making pop music for the next couple of years. Itâ€™s taken until last year to come back around and uncover all of those layers that were thrown over me and connect back with my roots. Itâ€™s been nice to chill out and write again. It almost feels like Iâ€™m twelve years old again.”
