Cody ChesnuTT's got soul (Created June 24, 2013)
Don't pigeonhole Cody ChesnuTT. Not as the black rock artist or the neo-sound singer or a free spirit from Atlanta, Georgia.
The fact is, ChesnuTT is so much more. This R&B artist skillfully blends rock, funk, hip hop, soul and blues, and has been doing his thing since the mid-90's as he made the transition from the deep South to the flourishing urban scene of Los Angeles. Seeking freedom from what he deemed to be black sterotypes, ChesnuTT filled in on guitar with the rhythm and rock band Crosswalk. A recording contract was tendered shortly thereafter, but the band's album was never released.
ChesnuTT's home studio (aka the Sonic Promiseland) contained just a four-track machine and one microphone used to record new material. It came in 2002 as the double disc "The Headphone Masterpiece." The project crossed over onto the mainstream charts the following year, and he landed a supporting gig with Grammy Award-winning hop hop/neo soul band The Roots.
Though ChesnuTT's work has been sporadic over the last decade, he released an EP called "Black Skin No Value" in 2010 and announced plans for his second big album "Landing On A Hundred." It was released in October 2012 under Vibration Vineyard and One Little Indian Records.
ChesnuTT and his band recently played two shows with Martin Luther for SOB's Summer Splash Concert Series on the Luxury Infinity Yacht in New York City, and he has dates penciled in on the calendar into September.
