Cody Brooks Signs With Razor & Tie Music

Razor & Tie Music Publishing has signed singer-songwriter Cody Brooks.

Brooks first picked up the guitar as a teenager, and growing up near Nashville drew inspiration from legends like Tommy Dorsey, Robert Johnson, Hank Snow, and Jimmy Hendrix. He has toured across the U.S. and is prepping the release of his upcoming album, which was produced by Ken Coomer (Wilco / Uncle Tupelo). The project is set for release in early 2018.

“There’s no one like Cody anywhere,” says Brad Kennard, Vice President of Razor and Tie Publishing, “When he takes the stage, you can’t take your eyes off of him. His songwriting, musicianship, and stage performance are all enthralling…and perhaps a little frightening. He’s a damn star.”

“I’m a pit-bull wearing matador shoes just trying to dance in a cockfighting town,” said Brooks on joining Razor & Tie. “It became a motif for me to put on a muzzle and scare the chickens, but no one would take me home after the spectacle they paid for…not because of my nature, but because of my breed. That’s when Razor & Tie stepped in. I have felt nothing but support and understanding from everybody within the Razor & Tie family. And that makes me want to give them the best damn parts of me that I possess.”
