Born Turner Van Pelt Kniffin, December 22 1980. Grew up in Boston. Moved to New York City in 1999 at the age of 18 and has lived there on and off ever since.
Turner Cody lives in Brooklyn, NY and plays bass in Herman Düne, but not only… He is also a very interesting singer/songwriter who is following the paths of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan or Daniel Johnston.
Cody appeared on the 2002 compilation, Antifolk Vol. 1 released by Rough Trade, alongside The Moldy Peaches, Jeffrey Lewis, Diane Cluck, and others.
Since he left his hometown Boston for New York in 1999 at the age of 18 he recorded not less than 8 albums.
Tuner Cody began his career as the fabled Sidewalk Cafe. He has toured Europe with Ish Marquez and as the opener/bass player for Herman Dune, with whom he has worked closely since 2003. You can see Cody most recently in the guise of the folk icon of the time in Jeffrey Lewis’ Williamsburg Will Oldham Horrour music video. When he is not writing and recording, Cody dances to klezmer music at Williamsburg’s Hassid meets Hipster, which he helped found in 2004, and spins records with Adam Green in East Village.
Turner Cody joins Herman Düne on their current european dates and supports their shows with his very own songs.
