Erica-Cody is a singer-songwriter-producer solo artist from North Dublin. She has been performing since the age of 4, she has been writing songs since the age of 8. At the age of 15 she landed her first support gig for afro-beat artist WizKid for his headline show in Citywest, at the age of 16 she began producing after receiving an iPod touch from her parents for christmas it started off as just loops but then progressed as she got a macbook a few years later and has been producing ever since and trying to develop her sound.
Having grown up in a household with an American father and Irish mother she had been influenced by a very young age to many different genres from R&B - Country, but R&B being the one she gravitated and grew a passion for the most. She grew up listening to the likes of Stevie Wonder, Boys II Men, New Edition, Jodeci, Lauryn Hill, SWV and Aaliyah (just to name a few!), and has been inspired by her South Carolina roots by also listening to gospel music from a young age.
Now at the age of 20 she is currently studying vocals at BIMM Dublin, she would now describe her music as a fusion of old school R&B with new school R&B with a hint of pop. Since 2015/2016 she has been doing many gigs around Dublin including:
-Chandelier Sessions Attic Bar Swords (2015)
