Cody Carson’s bio (age)
Cody Carson is an American music artist who hails from Tampa, Florida where he was born on January 9, 1989. He was raised at his birthplace where he also attended a public high school. From an early age, Cody knew he had a strong passion for music, which led him to seek out a school where he would receive proper training. He eventually landed at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music located in Ohio and there he studied orchestral arts. However, he was unable to complete his studies as his music concerts and the band he joined took up most of his time.
At 11, Cody had the privilege of learning to play the clarinet and since his father was into orchestral music, it was easy for him to choose a thing or two at a tender age. However, his musical preference changed to rock music which did not sit well with his family as they had no interest in that direction. He took a bold step, putting aside his family’s perspective to look for where to play and gradually, opportunities started to arise.
The first of its kind came in his freshman year in college and it was with a popular band. Her outstanding performance did not go unnoticed, coupled with the fact that the show made waves. This encouraged Cody to push further into the world of rock music and he decided to revive a band that he and high school friend Dan Clermont had started.
With the help of Clermont they had some great ideas to bring the band back to life but they saw the need for extra hands and got 2 other passionate rock artists – Austin Kerr and Zack DeWall to join their team. The four reunited for the revival of the band Set It Off and during the same period, Cody Carson went further to create a YouTube channel for the band which called itself RockManiac89. They gradually started to get attention and coupled with the fact that Cody had played in a number of places, it was easy for his fans to start loving his new band.
Set It Off dropped their debut EP on October 31, 2008 titled “Baby, You Don’t Tripajaharda” and the following year they released “Calm Before the Storm” on May 12, 2009. It was during this time that Cody Carson dropped out of college. They also found a few other songs in 2010 like Hush Hush, Together Forever and ‘@Rhness’ before finally securing a deal with Equal Vision Records in 2011. This paved the way for them to release their debut album titled ‘Horrible Kids ‘ which was a major breakthrough as the album was named to iTunes’ list of 100 Alternative Albums.
Other EPs released by Cody and his band include ‘Cinematics’ which came out in 2012, ‘Duality: Stories Unplugged’ in 2014 – which earned a spot in the Billboard chart top 100 and the album ‘Upside Down’ which was released in 2016. The band then signed a deal with Fearless Records in 2018 and they released a few songs with the label and even went on a world tour with them which further established their name in the industry.

Cody tried to travel to Florida where his father was being treated but before get there, James Cody had passed away.
