Cody ChestnuTT released his edgy, lo-fi solo debut The Headphone Masterpiece, to critical acclaim in 2002. The public also took notice when a track from the album was retooled by The Roots and released as "The Seed (2.0)", with ChestnuTT on vocals. (The song was nominated for two Moonman statuettes at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards.) ChestnuTT's subsequent nomination for the prestigious Shortlist Music Prize and later appearance in Dave Chappelle's Block Party added to his growing cult-fame status. But then he dropped out of sight for a while, as he took time for a period of family-man retreat and reflection.

Thankfully for fans, last year saw him return in earnest to the music scene, with the release of Landing on a Hundred, made at the same studio in Memphis, Tennessee where the likes of Al Green, Buddy Guy and Ike & Tina Turner recorded many of their most career-defining works. The new album, whose title is slang for telling the whole truth, has been described by various critics as "a long overdue, welcome comeback",  "easy-going vintage soul that rolls magnificently on the ear" and "a stunning, socially conscious soul album reminiscent of early 1970s classics like What's Going On."

Cody ChestnuTT's recent live shows in Europe and the US in support of the album have also been lauded:

"Cody’s pure love for the show and the art of the song truly comes from his heart, bursting at the seams with passion and care". - Spinningplatters.com

"To see a man so humble, grateful and at ease with himself is a beautiful thing. Backed by a tight-as-hell band, he had the crowd in the palm of his hand. If you love Marvin, Al, Stevie and Curtis, you'd have loved this." - Bearded Magazine.

Don't miss your chance to catch this neo-soul legend on a rare NZ visit this October.
