Georgia born singer-songwriter and roots-rock artist Cody Marlowe found his inspiration at an early age in the soulful sounds of B.B. King, Merle Haggard, and the Allman Brothers. Marlowe’s songs explore the polarities of good and evil in an intriguing blend of lyrics featuring lost loves and hopeful musings.

His most recent album, “Silver and Gold,” is his third release since his first EP, “Where You Are,” released in 2010 and his first full length, “Eighty Nine,” released later that same year. For the new album, Marlowe teamed up with brothers, producer/drummer Kevin Sellors and bass player Ryan Sellors, to form his new back-up band the Dead Flowers. During the recording process, Marlowe recruited Joey Huffman on organ (Hank Jr., Matchbox 20) and Nathan Bedingfield on electric guitar (Aaron Shust).

“Silver and Gold” is a return to the roots of rock n roll, country, blues, and honest songwriting; reminiscent of Tom Petty and the Black Crowes but with a modern edge inspired by childhood in the 90’s. Expect this album to earn respect from the musicians
of the past while stretching the musical paradigm of a younger generation.

Captain Kudzu (solo)
Captain Kudzu, formerly a duo project of Jackson Gafford and a close friend, has now become Gafford’s stage name for his independent work as a producer, multi-instrumentalist, band leader, and singer-songwriter. An Opelika, AL native, Gafford just finished recording his first EP "The Shady Glenn EP" and released it in early October.

Recently Captain Kudzu has grown from a one man show to a full band, Gafford enlisting his friends for the live show. Going to a Captain Kudzu show you’ll see everything from swelling ambient loops, to folk music, to fuzzed out psyche rock in a relatively short time span.

Currently Captain Kudzu is in the process of setting up a studio and promoting a debut EP, building a website, and filming videos and live shows so there is much, much more to come from this group of weirdos from Alabama.
