about

During the summer of 2011, a broken hard drive that carried nearly a decade of music I had been recording and learning had been fried, and my memory of riffs, lyrics and messages lackluster at best. From spoken word and experiments in sound to instrumentals and full songs, I assembled hours (and possibly days) of material that gave me a view into my early years, and how far I've evolved as an artist. I promised myself when I was 18 that I would finish an "album," or at least a collection of recordings I've made in the past ten years to show my family and friends, who have almost never heard me sing or play outside of muffled bits and pieces behind my locked door. Music has been my life ever since I was a child, from listening to classical music as a kid religiously to listening to my first album. From when my life felt like a complete failure to my proudest moments, I've created a soundtrack for everything in between. Diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome when I was 4, my first official release's title is a nod to something I've been trying to overcome for nearly my entire life. At its core, Twitch is less of a showcase of my ability and more of a soundtrack to an attempt to recover sounds I created in the past; songs, riffs and words that I have built and lost during my teenage and adult life.

about

Cody Nix Claremore, Oklahoma

For nearly a decade, I've been playing and recording music in my room. From experimental post-rock to singer/songwriter acoustic tracks, I once had a hard drive with hours of material, none of which any of my friends and family have heard. After losing all of my material stored on my hard drive, my debut project is an attempt to recover some of those sounds. ... more

Track Name: Board Shift (live)
I walk through the hallway
portraits of strangers glaring back at me
An empty stare returns my wondering eyes
I wonder what they'd think of me

This empty building
Sprinkled with water and light
Returns my wandering footsteps
As if someone's joining me

I think someone's joining me

As I enter the studio
The speakers blare my favorite song
And I wonder if someone's listening
feeling the same things I do

And as the song starts to fade
the on-air light starts to shine and dim
I call out the song and move along
hoping my words and feelings will one day reach them

Would you mind if I reached you?

I pack my bags and lock the door
the station's sound seems to fade away
and in due time the show is mine
but now it's just another empty airwave

Will I reach them anymore?
Was there anyone I was reaching anyway
I turn on my car radio and I hear my prerecorded message say
I hope you have a nice day.

And as the song starts to fade
the on-air light starts to shine and dim
I call out the song and move along
hoping my words and feelings will one day reach them

Would you mind if I reached you?
