With the release of a new song and video on his YouTube channel called “Wilderness” Cody Simpson using his amazing voice and guitar skills to bring awareness to the recent oil spills in Santa Barbara, CA. He has partnered with Surfrider to collect donations to help clean up the ocean. Here is what Cody wrote on the donation website:
Hello Everyone, it’s Cody Simpson here.
I was inspired to write a song to raise environmental awareness to the people and all my fans.
It’s one of the interludes on my first independent album Free coming out in July. Our initial plan for the video was to shoot a lot of nature scenes up the coast towards Big Sur but after we heard the news about the oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara we decided it that the only right thing to do was to use the song & video to raise money in favor of the cleanup efforts.
Surfrider has been doing such amazing work for so long and I want you to help them with whatever you can by making a small donation below. So they will continue their good work. Please join me today in kicking any money you have to keep their cause alive! For a better clean world.
Thank you so much,
We applaud Cody for using his music and artistic ways to shed light on an important but under-looked issue. If you are unable to donate, share the video with your friends and family to spread awareness.
We are highly anticipating the release of Free because of his new fresh, raw, acoustic vibe– it truly sounds like nothing else in the industry at the moment. “Thotful” and “Free“ are available for preview on Cody’s YouTube channel and the entire album can be preordered on iTunes now. If you’re looking for an album to jam out to by the pool or in your car this summer, we suggest you preorder asap!
