Australian Teen Sensation Cody Simpson To Meet Fans At HMV Square One Mall In Mississauga, Ontario, Monday, June 20, 2011, 5:00PM â€“ 6:00PM June 17 2011
For immediate release
This Monday, June 20, 2011, Atlantic Records artist Cody Simpson will meet fans and sign copies of his debut EP 4U at HMV Square One Mall, 100 City Centre Drive, Mississauga, Ontario. Cody will be at the store from 5:00pm â€“ 6:00pm. Fans are limited to one signed item each in order to get to as many people as possible. The first 200 people to purchase the 4U EP will be guaranteed front-of-the-line access.
At 14 years-old, Cody Simpson already has his first hit single, â€œiYiYiâ€ featuring Flo Rida and his fans rank in the millions as can be attested through the extraordinary number of views his videos have on Youtube and the growing legions joining his Facebook page daily. His four official music videos alone have garnered over 35 million combined views over the past 12 months.
As a kid growing up on Australiaâ€™s Gold Coast, Cody got his first guitar at the age of seven. Encouraged by his parents, he kept singing and practicing and by 12 years old he was posting YouTube videos of himself performing covers of songs by artists who inspired him such as Justin Timberlake, Jason Mraz and The Jacksons.
In 2009, Cody got a message through his YouTube Channel from songwriter and producer Shawn Campbell (Jay-Z, Missy Elliott, Ciara) expressing interest in meeting him. Cody and his father flew to the U.S. where the teenager wrote and recorded some tracks with Campbell. In April 2010, Cody Simpson signed to Atlantic Records. By the summer of 2010, the single â€œiYiYiâ€ was on radio all over North America and a sensation was launched.
Cody Simpson will be appearing on the MuchMusic Video Awards this Sunday, June 19. He is currently completing work on his first full length album to be released later this year.
