Why do we like this?
Cody Chestnutt has the makings of a modern-day myth. He was part of a band called The Crosswalk that had a record deal in the 90s, but never materialized into a commercially released album. Then, years later, he barricaded himself in his bedroom and created the double album The Headphone Masterpiece, which propelled him into the spotlight.

The Roots covered one of his songs and he seemed to have all the makings of a truly gifted cross-over musician. Then he disappeared from the public eye. He moved to Florida and raised his family in the country. His outlook on life took on a much more spiritual depth than the man that presented us the self-produced double CD.

Since then, he has done little press and released scant amounts of music. He even had a project titled The Live Release a few years ago that was a collection of new songs released through a series of select live performances. A true artist unconcerned with many material attachments that our culture associates with artistry, Cody has chosen to create and release music at his own pace.

Late last year, Cody quietly released Black Skin No Value, an EP of short, direct songs with a strong message. The song we're streaming here, "Everybody's Brother," speaks on an individual who has lived a life of sin but has come upon a spiritual path that completely alters his life. Delivered with the Sunday morning sweetness that few today posses, even if you don't quite care for a message in your music, only a cold heart would not feel Cody ChesnuTT's soul.
