Having started cutting his teeth on the Houston music scene in 1999, Cody Kouba has had the luxury of surrounding himself with great musicians and friends. From July of ‘99 Cody and his band, Lost Cause, (which changed to Sexual Chocolate shortly after) made the local Honky-tonks, bringing back the lost tunes of Johnny Rodriguez, Merle Haggard, Charlie Rich, and many other country legends we know so well. In a club scene that was dominated by top 40 cover bands, the authentic sounds that were supposedly dead were catching the crowds now more than ever. It was at this time that Cody introduced his first album, “Long Road Ahead”, and had those same fans eating up his vivacious blend of Rocking Texas guitar and banjo, along with comical and sometimes extreme country lyrics. With this new innovative sound, Cody made his way across the air ways into the stereos of many fans across this great state of Texas. He was hand selected as one of Texas Most Wanted bands by the CBS-affiliate radio station 95.7 KIKK in Houston for “Long Road Ahead’s” single “Road Trip from Hell.” After three years of running his band, Lost Cause finally lost its luster within itself. Each of the guys went their separate ways, one now a grass tycoon, one's an orchestra teacher, and one still travels the Texas scene with the Jon Wolfe Band. This was a low point in Cody’s music career and little was seen for opportunity beyond the way of the horizon. However, in College Station Texas of ’03 at the famous North by Northgate Festival, a culmination of two different worlds collided. Cody met the boys from and the boys from met Cody. The blend of their unique songs, sound and Cody’s wicked guitar was the breed for utter success. Their second album, “Any Other Way,” was released in January of ’04. With the help of management from The Company artist management Cody with shared the stage with the Red Rocker, Sammy Hagar along with the likes of Toby Keith, Jerry Cantrell and many other incredible artists. The guys were burning up the highways and airways alike. It was Dallas one night, Austin the next, and then to Glenn Rose with Pat Green and Max Stalling, you couldn’t touch it . What's more the band also perked the ears of Warner Brothers Nashville Publishing Firm, Warner-Chappell, and was named in the top 3 of new Texas Country Bands by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (Grammy Awards). They also performed for a national TV show, Food Nation with Bobby Flay on the Food Network. This musical experience open a lot of avenues for Cody and gave him more stories to write about. This fueled his desires to go at it again, not just as a co-songwriter and guitar player, but as his own entity. had been put on hold with the birth of Wayne, Cody, and Thomas’ baby’s and understandingly career focus’ changed for some. This provoked the release of Cody’s second album “Days and nights”, which was highly anticipated by Cody Kouba fans and now fans alike. In the process of this breaking down there was a spawn in growth of ticket sales and record sales as well. “The Long Road Ahead” had finally come full circle. What was started years ago has found itself at a completion as well as new beginning. Cody continues making music with an edge along with help from all his friends and musicians. In Cody’s own “you can not stop the inevitable, Great Music..” Cody said, "I find myself looking at my family, my daughter, and back down the roads traveled. I realize more and more that each moment is special and has bearing on your soul and what lies ahead, so you had better take in all you love and let the rest of life’s garbage just pass you by: enjoy the ride“ (Just Pass you By 2005). Enjoy the album and thank you for listening in on piece of my history. We will see you in a honky-tonk down the road. Thanks
