Something Different

In his debut CD, Singer/Songwriter John Cody reveals his perspective on love, loss and emotional survival consistent with the CD’s title. While his musical influences are reflected through southern rock anthems like “Mississippi Hard Times” and his remake of “Sixteen Tons”, and the soft ballads of “Hide Your Face” and “Song for Macel”, each explores this psychological tapestry from different perspectives. There is significant introspection in this CD exhibited though narratives like “Wither Away”, “The Carnival”, and “The Last Stand”, which combine with the other songs on the CD to create a passionate collage that attempts to understand our ability to cope with emotional strife.

Good Stuff

Longmont, Colorado blues legend John Cody has released a powerful debut CD. The Morality of Altitude resonates with the sounds of the Mississippi Delta, Cody’s home turf. Originally from the Jackson, Mississippi area, he grew up on the sounds of John Fogerty, Jackson Brown Gordon Lightfoot as well as being influenced by Muddy Waters ,BB King, Howlin’ Wolf and Lead Belly. These influences can be heard throughout The Morality of Altitude. If one were to describe this CD in one word it would be smooth. Cody’s deep voice and tight guitar playing come across as smooth and easy, especially in the first two songs, “Wither Away” and “Hide Your Face.” “Wither Away” floats the listener along with Cody’s vocals and Hide Your Face is perhaps the best crafted song on the release. A soft saxophone backs up the poetic lyrics on this number. “Mississippi Hard Times” picks the tempo up. This is a rocking ballad with a great hook. Cody’s singing and guitar playing are easy to tap your foot or dance to. The rest of the songs fall back into easy listening ballads with a country twist, something you might play for dinner music or at a cocktail party. With “Sixteen Tons” the only cover on the ten song CD, the original tunes show good song writing skills. This writer can only hope there is more to come from this talented singer song writer.


From the soulful sounds of Wither Away to the easy rock of Mississippi Hard Times, this is a solid mix and a good album. I love his take on Sixteen Tons. Overall an album worth buying.
