Chances are, you have come to know and love Australian singer Cody Simpson‘s music over the years. His latest artistic endeavor involves a brand new band called Cody Simpson & The Tide, which just dropped upcoming tour dates for you to experience them in person.
“A grand visitation of creative inspiration arose when I spent my summer in Venice Beach. Practicing guitar, surfing and writing poetry and songs in the streets of vibrant Southern California, I was met with an intense surge of musical and literary energy. I conceived of a concept, a project, a band. The Tide,” Cody shared about how the group was formed, years after he first debuted as a solo artist.

“The Tide, acting as a sonic exemplar of flow and fluidity. The way of things. The way of nature. Guitars, rock and surf music, psychedelia, transcendence from everyday bourgeois consciousness. A project that could encourage fellow youth to strive for the state of flow I experienced that summer. A fluidity that the ocean’s tide exemplifies so flawlessly. The way of the tide. The sun and the moon. Zen spontaneity,” Cody continued. “Myself and some musicians I started playing with that summer have put together a project and band that I’m stoked to share.”
