Today we’d like to introduce you to Kodē Frenzy.
Kodē, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My first memory of music is getting a toy guitar for Christmas when I was seven. I remember learning every song in it and performing every chance that I got, from then on for the rest of her life. I never realized that I was actually fighting to be an artist. So I took every play, talent show, church choir, or opportunity to sing seriously from that point on. At 12 I started recording and writing for myself and I then recognized my ability to create songs for myself. Though I never had many supporters, I continued to create and teach myself as much as I could about music.
I became Kodē Frenzy at 19 years old during my sophomore year at Howard University. After years of denying myself, I finally switched my major from nursing (something I never truly loved) to audio production and began chasing my dreams out loud. A year later, I returned home to LA and never stopped.
Has it been a smooth road?
The road for me, while chasing my dream of being an award-winning artist, has been far from smooth. I had to really conquer an extreme amount of self- doubt and resistance to choose the easy road. Especially with my mom being a nurse, there were plenty of times where I felt like completely giving up and following my mom’s footsteps as a nurse. But with those struggles came resilience, and I realized that there is no one stronger than those who are willing to put all shame aside and put their happiness first. Yeah, my road is difficult, and even narrow. But the reward is much more valuable than choosing the easy road.
Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I am a musician, which includes songwriting and singing. I am teaching myself to play the guitar right now so that I am able to widen my range and be able to create melodies using the sound of the strings. I want to be able to change lives of women and men by pushing positivity through my music. That is my main goal. I am so proud that I have allowed Jesus to use me as his light, in order to change the lives and minds of others. I will continue to push His truth and mine as well through my music, and if I can turn on the light and open the eyes of ONE person, then my job is done.
Where do you see your industry going over the next 5-10 years? Any big shifts, changes, trends, etc?
Over the next 5-10 years, I plan on positively moving forward on my journey with music. I want to have such a wide reach and audience of people who believe in me, and who are truly being healed by my music. I want to be in a position where I can not only comfortably support myself completely, but also support my family and anyone else who is in need. I also want to be in a position where I can help young girls with whatever they need, whether it’s hygiene, education, or just a shoulder to lean on. I will never be distant from my fans.
