Twangville Review

The latest album was recently reviewed by Twangville and they had great things to say:

“By dint of comparison, the debut album from Austin musician Cody Jasper opens with Black Cadillac, an old blues cotton-field style chant updated with some tasty steel and electric guitar accompaniment.  Instead of getting up and dancing, you sit mesmerized in your chair, swaying back and forth to the beat.  At that point though, the album picks you by the scruff of the neck and shakes you.  From here on, it’s southern blues and rock & roll in the style of the Vaughn brothers or maybe J.J. Grey.  There’s lots of guitar and some feedback and even a little vocal homage to Robert Plant in his youth.”

A Day In The Life

A Day in the Life of a Music Junkie took time to review the debut album and we loved the review, our favorite parts:

“I’m not gonna lie: when I read the name Cody Jasper, I thought of the pop music genre – thank you, Cody Simpson.  I didn’t do any background research or anything and simply listened to the album raw, and to my surprise, Jasper’s got a rock and soul thing going on.”

“The album shows two caricatures of Jasper.  On one hand he can be the raunchy lustful lover, talking about drugs and sex, but on the other, he can be a sweet and heartfelt lover, yearning for your touch.”

6. Cody Jasper, February 20 at Continental Club

Cody Jasper’s Texas roots run deep. He was born and raised in Amarillo. His great-grandfather played guitar with king of Texas swing Bob Wills. And his forthcoming debut album, the release of which he’ll fête on February 20th at the Continental Club, was recorded in Dripping Springs. But Jasper’s sound pulls from all over the South: sumptuous Stax-style horns, scorching slide guitar solos à la Stevie Ray Vaughan and a splash of outlaw country that’s surely a nod to good friend Shooter Jennings. “If it wasn’t for Shooter,” Jasper says in recent press materials, “I would still be trying to decide if I was country or rock ‘n’ roll.” Thank the Lord he decided to embrace them both. ”
