Singer-songwriter Cody Pennington to play last gig in town before heading back to Nashville
American singer-songwriter Cody Pennington will perform his last gig in Bury St Edmunds on Saturday before he heads home to Nashville.
Taking to the stage at the Theatre Royal, he will be joined by Nik Lowe and Cathedral & Cars.
Selected as ‘Best Male Solo Artist 2014’ by the NMG Awards, Cody is steadily raising the bar for local musicians and describes his sound as ‘acoustic driven folk pop’.
Since releasing his second EP, To Be Me, in August 2014, he has seen nothing but growth and has no plans of stopping soon.
Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, he began singing solos in school after accidentally joining a choir.
He taught himself to play guitar and also plays the drums.
Vulnerability and emotion are evident in his songs, which are a statement of individuality but include common themes like heartbreak and coming from a broken home.
He arrived in the UK in November 2013 and held his first gig at the Queeen’s Head, in Bury.
His musical influences include Mumford and Sons and John Mayer.
His last gig in Bury starts at 7pm.
