Catching Up With Cody

February 2, 2013

If you don’t know Cody Simpson, then you’re really missing out. Most notably, the 16-year-old Aussie singer sold out his “Welcome To Paradise” Tour, released an album last fall called “Paradise,” and also opened up for Justin Bieber on the Believe Tour. You could say 2012 was a busy year for the singer. He also released a mixtape, “Angels and Gentlemen,” and toured with Big Time Rush.

We wanted to know what touring with Justin Bieber was like so Cody told us. “Touring with Justin has been an incredible experience and a chance to get in front of so many of his fans every night. Justin has been really supportive.” Cody will be touring Europe with Justin until the Paris show on March 19th.

Meanwhile, Cody has a few weeks off until the Believe Tour resumes overseas but he won’t be sitting too still. He plans to be in the studio every day (except Super Bowl Sunday) trying to finish material for his sophomore album.  “We’re currently working on my second full length album and all going well we should have it out some time in the spring/summer. I will be stoked to get some more music out there.” He’s also working on some new choreography for the European tour, and shooting a few music videos. Also, he’ll be hitting up the movie première screening for “Escape from Planet Earth” which features one of his songs. If all of that wasn’t enough, Cody reminded me of one more thing, “How could I forget, keeping up with my schoolwork!”

If you didn’t know, every week Cody releases an episode from his YouTube series “Paradise.” They are hoping to release a new episode every week for a year. They come out each Tuesday. He explained, “these episodes are always fun to do and a great way for my fans to get a pretty candid glimpse of what happens behind the scenes. We don’t really plan each episode as there is always something crazy happening on the road that i know my fans would appreciate being a part of.” In last week’s episode, a fan hosted the episode from one of Cody’s meet and greets.

If you’re looking to see Cody in the immediate future, he will be on the February 4th episode of “The Biggest Loser” where he will be joining teen ambassador Lindsay in giving an anti-bullying speech to their peers. Cody has been very active in the anti-bullying movement. He is apart of Defeat the Label, an anti-bullying movement with a mission to end social labeling. He encourages everyone to take the pledge to stand up against bullying.
