At a young age, Cody Ray's stepdad taught him the guitar and kung fu. He grew up loving both, but did not decide to pursue either talent professionally. Instead, Cody Ray decided to join the military and was stationed at the North Pole. After spending time in isolation, Cody Ray felt the need to take his life in another direction. He decided to move to Seattle and began to pursue music, starting a band called Cody Ray & the New Favorites. They can be found performing at many venues across the city.
