Cody Melville is an American guitarist, songwriter, and producer. A prolific songwriter, he has recorded ten albums. His tenth record, Bonds Eye, will be released in November of this year. It follows 2015’s Fireworks on 14th Street. As with the majority of his albums, he plays most of the instruments himself but for a few notable exceptions: Steve Holley (Ian Hunter, Wings) contributed drums, Keith Lentin (Link Wray) – acoustic guitar and bass, and Jeff Levine (Joe Cocker) – Hammond organ, and piano. John Melville drums, Joel B. Cannon slide guitar (both from The Everyothers) and Dina Regine lends her voice on the duet “Remember Ah Remember.”

Cody is a rock n’ roll artist and this is a rock n’ roll album that strays a little with a soul ballad and a lush cover of the Mick Ronson song “The Empty Bed“, recorded as a tribute to Ronson who produced some of Cody’s earliest recordings.

Bonds Eye Album -- Cody Melville
1. I don’t Want to Go – An anthem for those who can never commit to any kind of relationship.
2. Rock n’ Roll Prayer – Faith delivered in a three-minute song addressing the possibility of falling for some beautiful stranger. This is the soundtrack.
3. I Envy Her So – The follow up to Rock n’ Roll Prayer. The specifics of the beautiful stranger.
4. Dance in the Mirror – The death of cool as the singer knows it, but soldiers on writing songs, playing gigs. It Welcomes the listener to blast the records by themselves, with a drink in hand, and maybe a body in motion.
5. Marie – The perfect girl that got away – living in Little Italy, near Chinatown, near Bowie.
6. Damaged Goods – For the kids who get messed with.
7. Joey’s A Saint – A tale of a New York Artist taken out by the changing times.
8. The Empty Bed – A cover, as a tribute to Mick Ronson. A hero, a mentor.
9. Remember Ah Remember – Calling out a fascist leader – featuring Dina Regine.
10. My Girl is in the Show – a personal therapy session
