Kody West

Releases: Green (2017), Higher Ground – EP (2016)
Years at MusicFest: MusicFest 2018 Debut Artist

Kody started playing music just three short years ago. He began by playing acoustic gigs and songwriter competitions throughout the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. He then started opening for bands including popular Texas Country and Red Dirt acts like Dalton Domino and the Front Porch Family Band. Each show grew his following. He became a tour manager at the beginning of 2015 and hit the road full time, working and playing music across the state of Texas alongside the band. Kody recorded his first full production EP later that year in Stephenville, Texas with producers Ben Hussey and Josh Serrato (of the band Six Market Blvd). The EP titled Higher Ground released January of 2016 with “Playing Cards” as a single. Shortly after the release he formed a band and they continue to travel around Texas together to play his tunes. Kody’s music is a mix of Texas country and bluegrass with some good-for-the-soul grooves. Catch this rising star from the start at MusicFest!
