WRECK ME, the Cody Bryan Band’s debut album, showcases Bryan’s considerable vocal and songwriting skills on ten strong tracks, most co-written during one marathon weekend in Nashville. Standouts include the first single, “If I’m Going Nowhere,” the love song, “When We Were Made,” and the title track “Wreck Me”. Helmed by producer and Blue October bassist Matt Noveskey, WRECK ME transcends geographic or stylistic boundaries while heralding the arrival of an important new talent. Cody is accompanied by Zach Lynch on lead guitar, Miles Barker on bass, Casey Conway on drums and Cole Gramling on keys to create the Cody Bryan Band! Cody has toured with many of Texas music legends and rising stars such as Roger Creager, Wade Bowen and Kyle Park the Hutto Summer Concert Series’ first ever artist.
