Until my cousin said that we should bring her 4-year-old daughter and my 6-year-old niece to see this performer I have to admit I’d never heard of Cody Simpson. Excuse my ignorance.
Cody Simpson is a 15-year-old Aussie singer. He is a product of YouTube. Beginning in 2009 he began uploading videos of him covering such songs as Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”, the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” and Justin Timberlake’s “Senorita”. Besides all the young girls who were sent into a frenzy by his boyish good looks and talent, Grammy Award-winning producer Shawn Campbell saw the videos and knew he had a star on his hands.
In 2010 Cody and his family moved to Los Angeles after he was signed by Atlantic Records and began recording his debut EP with Shawn Campbell as producer. He also recorded a cover of the song “I Want Candy” for the film Hop. His second EP Coast to Coast was released in 2011.
