Raw, honest, organic, indigenous. The Cody Blackbird Band sets themselves apart from many of the pop-rock Indie bands that are in the musical marketplace today. Indigenous (Dakota, Cherokee, Romani gypsy) brothers Cody and Caleb Blackbird set out to form a group that honors the sacred music of their ancestors, while infusing the revolution of rock and R&B into their unique style. Utilizing the haunting sound of the traditional Native American wooden flute and hide skin drum, Cody has become the Pied Piper for a new generation of listeners, while his brother Caleb keeps the heartbeat of the pow-wow inside all of their songs. The 60s psychedelic guitar sounds of Will Benjamin add a throwback texture that brings to mind the groups of the late 60s playing at the Fillmore Auditorium. World Piano Competition winner and NAMMY Award winning artist Connor Chee holds down bass and keys giving adding a truly unique sound to this already eclectic style
