Who is Cody Simpson?
One of the most famous Australian pop music artists, Cody Simpson is a singer/songwriter and swimmer from the Gold Coast. Quite close to a fairytale story, Cody’s rise to fame inspires many people to reach for their dreams. His music ranges from teen pop to groovy beach tunes, and has evolved over the course of a decade from beat-heavy dance pop to guitar-driven ballads. In addition to releasing three hit albums, he has also performed in a Broadway show and starred in a movie. Some of his famous songs include iYiYi, Wish You Were Here and All Day.
Cody Simpson was born to Brad and Angie Simpson on 11th January 1997. The singer has two younger siblings: Alli and Tom. He attended All Saints Anglican School and trained at the Miami Swimming Club under the guidance of coach Ken Nixon. His mother was a volunteer at the club. Simpson has also won two gold medals at the Queensland Swimming Championships.
Cody Simpson started uploading videos of his own music in 2008, when he was 11 years old on Youtube. Using an acoustic guitar, the teen sang songs by other singers, including pop stars Jason Mraz and Justin Timberlake, as well as songs he had written himself. A year later, Shawn Campbell discovered Simpson’s YouTube page and invited him to the U.S., triggering a series of collaborative sessions and studio jams that led to his 2010 deal with Atlantic Records. He then released his debut single later that year, “iYiYi,” which entered the Top 20 in Australia due in large part to a cameo by Flo Rida. In December 2010, the song appeared on Simpson’s debut EP – 4 U.
In 2011, Simpson released the song “On My Mind” that May and went on a brief US tour in support of his EP ‘Coast to Coast’. He was also regularly featured on Australian television in 2011. A summer EP ‘Preview to Paradise’ was released prior to the October 2012 release of Simpson’s full-length debut, ‘Paradise’. The album was at number 2 in Australia and went all the way to number one in Canada. In the United States, it peaked at #27.
Soon after ‘Paradise’, Simpson released his next album: ‘Surfer’s Paradise’ in July 2013. Simpson’s second album received gold certification in the U.S. and reached #10, which was an all-time high for him. Cisco Adler produced the third studio album he released in 2015 called ‘Free’.
Simpson’s style kept evolving into acoustic-guitar based pop tunes. After forming Cody Simpson & the Tide with Adrian Cota and Shareef “Reef” Addo in 2017, he released an unplugged holiday single called “White Christmas”. He released his first EP for Entertainment One Music, the five-track ‘Wave One’ with the Tide. 2018 saw the release of his singles “Pirates Dream” and “Underwater.” The band split in 2019. On 18 October, Simpson released the single Golden Thing, marking his return to solo music. Golden Thing was a song he wrote about Miley Cyrus, whom he was seeing at the time. Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson dated from 2019 to 2020. Gigi Hadid was Cody Simpson’s girlfriend from 2013 to 2015. The Australian singer is now in a relationship with Marloes Stevens since September of 2020.
A song from Simpson’s upcoming 4th studio album, ‘Nice To Meet You’, was released on 25 January 2022, his first single in more than two years. The album would be released sometime in 2022.
Cody Simpson posted on Instagram in December 2020, that he had qualified for the Australian Olympic trials in the 100-metre butterfly, but fell just short of qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics as he got the 8th place in the trials in Adelaide, 2021. Currently, he is preparing to get into the 2024 Paris Olympics.
