Cody ChestnuTT – That’s Still Mama
Cody ChestnuTT came by the Shazam studio to give us an exclusive performance of ‘That’s Still Mama’. Cody is a soul troubadour who first tasted mainstream success back in 2002 when Hip Hop super-group ‘The Roots’ covered his track ‘The Seed 2.0′. His debut album ‘The Headphone Masterpiece’ received universal critical acclaim with his unique edgy take on modern soul.
‘Landing On A Hundred’ is Cody’s first full length release in 10 years and was recorded with a ten piece band in Memphis-based Royal Studios (the previous home to soul legends Al Green, Ike & Tina Turner). “The original tracks were cut on two inch tape,” Cody explains. “My hands were tingling because I got to sing on the actual microphone that Al Green recorded with”.
The album certainly channels the spirit and retro vibe of Curtis/Marvin era soul but Cody’s unique individuality, strong songwriting and charming delivery giving a fresh slant to this classic genre.
