Cody Lee – Live At Love Music Festival – 2022 – Recorded June 19, 2022 – NHK-FM, Tokyo –
Heading across the Pacific tonight for a concert from the 2022 Love Music Festival in Japan featuring Cody Lee who were one of the headliners on the second day of the festival.
Roughly described as a sort of Tokyo Shoegaze ensemble, Cody Lee have been around only since 2018, have signed with a major label (Sony) and are working on releasing their second album.
The band has been performing live in Tokyo and has been slowly gaining attention through word of mouth from rock fans, and appeared at their first music festival in 2019.
In 2020, Rino Ozaki, who is also active as a solo singer-songwriter, officially joined the band. And, they launched the independent label “sakuramachi records”. In December, their first nationally distributed album “Seikatsu no News” was selected as “TOWER RECORDS Recommendation” and won the Tohoku block prize at the CD SHOP AWARDS（in Japan）.The music video for the lead track “Wo Ai Ni” received more than 2 million views in just 4 months after its release on SNS, and was highly acclaimed around the world.
In 2021, as the band’s momentum was growing, they entered the top 10 of the Spotify viral charts in Japan, and their 1st live tour was inundated with ticket applications, far exceeding the number of tickets required. At the tour finale, it was announced that Kei Nishima, who had been supporting the band as a support bassist, had officially joined the band.
