Discovered via YouTube in 2009 at the age of 12, Cody Simpson had some whirlwind teenage years. Exploding onto the music scene (particularly in the US) - a US Top 10 album, collaborations with Justin Bieber and a rampant group of fans are just some of the things he's experienced at a young age.
Now, coming up to his 21st birthday, he's got a new band Cody Simpson & The Tide and a new EP Wave One - which captures both his Australian and Californian laid-back surf influences and also weaves in his feelings about the environmental challenges which the parts of the world he loves the most faces.
