Kody Ternes on SoundBetter

Chasing the melodies that give you the feels and stir the deepest emotions. I bring a great performance with a unique warm tone that sounds authentic. I've often been compared to Brandon Flowers, Mikky Ekko, and several times even Bono. I will always deliver a great hook.

Great melodies and catchy hooks. I will deliver a genuine believable performance that is fully edited, pitched and produced. I write rather quickly as well.

I've released two EP's that were written and co-produced by myself. I now write and tour with my band Young in a Million (Middle of my reel). I've toplined for DJ's in Italy, Colombia, Brazil, Australia and the U.S. I have performed with artists such as Switchfoot, For King and Country, Coldplay, Maroon 5, and Shawn Mendes. The electronic world seems to really gravitate toward my voice, however I have done several rock and pop songs.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    I used Kody for lead and background vocals on one of my songs. He has an awesome voice with some really beautiful tones. He gave the track what it needed and taken the track to another level. Kody was also super easy to work with, very professional and timely. I can highly recommend him.

    5+ stars. Kody is a FANTASTIC personality who will do everything he can to make you satisfied with the outcome - very flexible and willing to go the extra mile. His voice is stellar (emotional and powerful!) and his vocal range is really very impressive. He delivers killer harmonies that give your song the extra magic touch you are looking far. I cannot recommend Kody enough and I will be back for sure!

    It was absolutely enjoyable working with Kody. He even improvised on some of the vocal melodies because I have written them a little too harsh. The end result is really astonishing and I am very satisfied with it. Will definitely work again with you, Kody!
