Cody Simpson Bio

Three years ago Cody Simpson used to be a regular Australian kid who liked making music in his room, until his videos on ,YouTube blew up and he got his own record contract! Find out more about this dreamy Aussie’s incredible story!

In My Room

Fourteen year old Cody Simpson is from Gold Coast Queensland, Australia, and never dreamed that he would be one day touring across the world and living in L.A. Back in 2009 Cody started recording songs by other artists and putting his version on YouTube. Cody did covers of Jason Mraz’s song “I’m Yours” and Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River” and “Senorita” and many more. Eventually Cody started posting his own songs as well, like “One,” and people quickly caught on to this talented cutie’s potential.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered

Cody was discovered on the internet by star producer Shawn Campbell (who has produced for artists like Jay-Z), who signed him as soon as possible to Atlantic Records, and flew the Aussie kid out to America to perform and make music professionally. By the end of May 2010, Cody had released his first official single “iYiYi” featuring rapper Flo Rida! The only catch to getting signed—Cody had to leave Australia for L.A. and start his life as a pop star.

Cody Wants Candy

Cody released his EP 4 U in December of last year, and is working on his full length album right now. He is recording a version of the song “I Want Candy” as the theme for the animated movie Hop, which will be out this April!

Life on The Road

Cody immediately started touring, in the Summer of 2010 Cody went on the Camplified Tour across North America, followed by a tour of middle schools in the Fall, and guess what, he’s about to tour again! This time with another cutie you might be familiar with, Greyson Chance! Cody said,"the upcoming tour with Greyson Chance is going to be a blast! I'm so hyped to travel around the US and visit different cities... I can't wait 4 U to see it, and can't wait to see everybody!" I guess the rock star life is suiting him! Check out this video!


Did You Know...

Before Cody became famous for his amazing vocal skills and songs, he was a champion swimmer, and won two Gold Medals at the Queensland Swimming Championships!

They just wear the uniform. When there's a no uniform day, it's basically a rainbow. Not a nice one, but an ugly one. CAN'T YOU BE A KID FOR ONCE?

Honestly I commented on this post a while back saying I liked ATLA but I feel like The Legend of Korra had more depth to it and was definitely meant for older teens, which is why I feel like a lot of you like it better. But the finale put me at a tie. I love both the shows equally.
