Birth Place

Cody Simpson was discovered by Shawn Campbell when he was in his pre-teens. Cody posted a couple of songs on YouTube and a few days later, he was called by Shawn Campbell who was blown over by the 12 year old kid’s ability to perform instinctively. Shawn was surprised that a kid so young had so much of talent, self-confidence and took to the camera so well. He contacted him immediately but his parents thought it was a hoax. Soon they figured out that Shawn was a real deal and that their son had hit the jackpot every aspiring musician dreams of! Cody went for his first audition when he was 12 and everyone was blown away with his talent and his mature behavior in the studio while recording. He left for Los Angeles with his family in June 2010, when he was just 13 years old, in order to focus on his music career.

The Meteoric Rise to Stardom

He rose to fame with the album ‘4U’ which had songs like ‘iYiYi’ featuring rapper Flo Rida, and ‘All Day.’ He has quite a versatile voice which used to be slightly high pitched but has now become deep and melodious. Besides, he is also good with the guitar as is evident in his repertoire of songs like ‘Summertime’ and ‘Pretty Brown Eyes’. These established him to be a force to reckon with in the world of pop music. His acoustic, ‘So Listen’ featuring rapper T-Pain also has him playing pretty decent guitar.

What Makes Cody Simpson So Special

His song ‘Thotful’ from the album ‘Free’ received some flak from the media since the word is a slang and a derogatory term for a sexually active woman. But Cody maintained that it was originally spelt as ‘thoughtful’. “My job as a storyteller is to start conversations”, he said. He went on to explain that the woman in the song ‘shares everything with everyone else and never thinks about me’.

Beyond Fame

In 2015, one of the pictures he posted of himself and his buddy Justin Beiber in snapchat caused controversy because of a yellow pipe on the table. Some speculated that this pipe is typically used to smoke crystal meth or weed. Since Beiber is famous for his trysts with drugs, it was supposed that the session had more than just jamming going on. But Cody was quick to defend himself by saying that it was just ‘another ol’ pipe’ and they wouldn’t do drugs’ as it won’t do anything for their careers. There was also a photo of eight cones of marijuana posted on his twitter handle that was automatically deleted, but not before fans quite disappointedly commented that he shouldn’t be using such stuff. Cody has a clean image but such glimpses do sow seeds of doubt.
