Cody Summer has an incredible story to tell. In her 30 short years, she has been a cowboy, a dude wrangler, camp cook, elephant trainer, worked on an alpaca ranch, been a competitive cyclist, bicycle mechanic, EMT Firefighter, and has played and performed in California, Wyoming, Utah, Oregon, Nevada, Montana, Tennessee, and Arizona. With years of being a buckaroo under her belt, she would much more prefer singing than being bucked off of a hot blooded horse. Through her many years of riding, roping and branding in the rain, freezing in 60 below temperatures Night Calving, and gathering cows while choking on bug dust in Oregon, solitude became her place of solace.
“Music was always a part of who I was since an early age, and it was always bubbling beneath the surface no matter I was doing in life.”
So with a cattle book in hand, many times she would find herself jotting down lyric ideas, melodies, and musings about what life and music meant. And while taking in the natural beauty and grandeur she saw all around her, she discovered the mystery and the majesty of the presence of God breathing through the canyons and cathedrals in a way she never pictured.
“Since God created music, it should be the most beautiful, intense, and incredible music out there. My passion is to bring the grandeur and creative expanse of who He is into worship. It should be a reflection of the depth and character of what God can offer to every individual. I want to focus people on God and who He is, and I want my music to be a reflection of the nature of God, and the awesome power of his creation.”
