Cody Simpson & the Tide Follow "Wave One"

Cody Simpson & the Tide look to capture the carefree summer lifestyle of Venice, California, with their blues, surf rock, and psychedelia-inspired music. The vibrations of Southern California are in full focus on the band's recently released EP, Wave One.
Born in Australia, Simpson has already had an impressive career that includes touring with Justin Bieber and collaborating with Ziggy Marley and Asher Roth. He released an autobiography, Welcome To Paradise: My Journey, back in 2013, and has continued to create music ever since. On Wave One, the artist moves away from the synth pop sounds that initially brought him into the spotlight, and finds himself creating the kind of beach-themed tunes that fit his current, more-message-oriented-but-still-laidback state of mind.
ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann caught up with Cody Simpson to discuss the band's new album, the influence of Venice Beach, and the moments that ground him.
