EDITORS’ NOTES

Cody Jinks’ 2015 long-player is a heavy, thoughtful, and sometimes rowdy dose of classic country built for the next generation of the genre’s fans. The Texas songwriter nails an obligatory theme with toe-tapping love letter “Mamma Song” and conjures an ominous, stormy mood with the ode to feeling down “Loud and Heavy.” And Jinks never shies away from tender moments, using wistful strings to tackle heartbreak on the waltzing “Me or You.” He ends Adobe Sessions with the weary and sparse “Rock and Roll,” where he swears off hard living for good.

About Cody Jinks

With his smooth baritone and lonesome, dark-hued country songs, Cody Jinks evokes classic styles from outlaw country to classic Southern rock. A native of Haltom City, Texas, Jinks spent the early part of his career fronting the Fort Worth-based thrash metal outfit Unchecked Aggression before returning to his country roots and recasting himself as a honky tonk balladeer in the late 2000s. Beginning with 2010's Less Wise, Jinks issued a handful of independent releases, touring heavily with his backing band, the Tone Deaf Hippies. His first chart success came with 2015's Adobe Sessions, which was named after the Adobe Room at Tornillo, Texas' Sonic Ranch studio where it was recorded. The album peaked at number two on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, bringing Jinks into wider mainstream exposure. Returning to Sonic Ranch, he recorded his follow-up, I'm Not the Devil, which jumped to number four on the Billboard Country Albums chart upon its release in August 2016. Less Wise (Modified), a remixed and remastered version of his 2010 debut, arrived the following year. ~ Timothy Monger
