You could call Cody Tyler & Gypsy Convoy “red dirt country,” but the rocky soil in coal country and the rust belt, where Cody’s family has been rooted for centuries, is a few shades darker. The songs on the band's upcoming debut album are the product of Cody's musings while hunting deep in the Pennsylvania wilderness. At just 27 years old, his musical journey has barely begun, but his yearning to travel the open road with his songs written from his tree stand have already taken him across the United States as a solo artist. Drawing heavy influence from the likes of Waylon Jennings, Cody Jinks, The Allman Brothers Band, Jamey Johnson, Merle Haggard, The Steel Woods, Tyler Childers, and Chris Stapleton, Cody's voice and guitar sport a road-tested sound along with the seasoned musicians that make up Gypsy Convoy.
In 2020, the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall of Fame nominated Cody for two Central Pennsylvania Music Awards for Best Male Vocalist and Best Country Act, and the band was nominated for Best Country Band in 2021 by the CPMHOF. He was also a Top 150 vocalist for Season 14 of NBC’s The Voice, reaching the executive producer callback auditions in Los Angeles. In 2019, he was the runner-up in the Tumbleweed Country Music Festival Rising Star Talent Search, which featured over 300 country music artists from the US and Canada. He was also a top-3 finalist at the 2018 I-105 WIOV Showdown in the Park in New Holland, PA.
Nick & Joel at KVOK Radio in Oklahoma had this to say about the band’s song “Eagle Tattoo,” an ode to Cody’s ancestors and his brother, who have and are currently serving in the US military: “It sure is nice when a song is actually about something. We give it a 9/10. It has a great message and Cody‘s lyrics paint the picture really well through the whole song.”
The band’s forthcoming debut album, due out in May, was recorded at Think Loud Studios in York, PA. Cody describes its sound as “dusty like the coal mines and rusty like the steel mills. It’s soulful and bluesy country for Appalachian folks that want to kick up their boots.”
