Like many, with the childhood dream of becoming an Olympian one day, Cody had to balance swimming with education but his spare time was spent on another of his passions- music. Cody began to record songs in his bedroom and post them on YouTube and as his clips quickly escalated to millions of views, Atlantic Records offered him a deal which he signed in New York on his 13th birthday and a new chapter began.

With a hugely supportive family, the Simpsons emigrated to America to pursue Cody’s musical talent and almost a decade of what can only be described as ‘phenomenal’ followed. Packed with touring around the world, releasing albums, performing on Broadway, winning Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, an MTV Europe Music Award, a Young Hollywood Award and winning Masked Singer Australia, Cody lived a life most would only dream of but his childhood dream of being an Olympic swimmer was always a burning desire.

Fast forward just 2 short years from jumping back into the pool, Cody qualified to swim for Australia at the Commonwealth Games and will be making his International debut in Birmingham showcasing to us all that talent never disappears. An emerging story which certainly is nowhere near the end.
