This coming weekend, September 12-14, over 100 LGBTQ artists and performers will descend upon Austin, Texas for the inaugural Stargayzer Festival -- an epic 3-day queer music & arts mega-fest, previously unmatched in scale.
SSION's sound is sultry pop with a disco backbone, led by Cody's sincere, controlled vocals. It is easy to dance along with, and because the music tends towards encouraging, the dance is positive, bordering liberating.
This week I had the chance to catch up with the mastermind behind SSION, Cody Critcheloe. We talked about new videos, the trials of growing up queer in small towns, and what it means to "make it" in the music industry in this day and age.
