Cody Angel started playing guitar at the ripe age of 11 while living in Kentucky. When he was 13 years old he met Lloyd Maines after moving to Texas. Maines urged him to pick up the steel guitar, which he eventually did at age 17 with a borrowed Sho Bud.
After high school, Cody went to South Plains College in Lubbock, Texas and earned his Associates degree from the Commercial Music program with a focus on guitar and steel. His last semester, he auditioned for the Kyle Park band and went to work with him after finishing his finals at South Plains. After playing with Kyle for a year, the opportunity to replace one of his favorite players, Roger Ray, with Jason Boland and The Stragglers became available, and Cody jumped at the chance.
Since beginning his music career, Cody has had the opportunity to play and record with such acts as Larry Joe Taylor, Midnight River Choir, Josh Abbott Band, Haley Cole, The Damn Quails, Copper Chief, Randy Rogers, Austin Gilliam, Wade Bowen, William Clark Green, Cody Canada and The Departed, Jeremy Plato, American Aquarium, and Jamie Lin Wilson.
