Code Caliber



Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I am Code Caliber
I write, produce, and make music of all genres
I’m a BMI songwriter/composer
I started out playing guitar, and writing folk/pop/rock music but have always loved to feel the rthymn of music. Now my quest is to put my passion for music out for everyone to listen and get lost in a world of I hear and see.
I create music that has its own soundtrack for every story.



How would you describe your style and genre?


I’m very ecletic with my style as well as my sound that I bring to the table. It has taken me a couple of years to realize how I want to be heard. I pull inspiration from all genres, whether it’s a guitar riff from a country song, mix with a synthesizer, and jazz drum and bass. I get lost in my process to provide music that tells a story even if there are no words. If you had to put my music in a genre, the words Digital Poetry come to mind. It’s a phrase I choose because I want to draw other artist to expand to break new ground and give a voice to people that really connect with music as a whole.




Who are your biggest idols ever? Dead or alive, musician or non-musician.


Well let’s get the famous ones out of the way. Music wise I really found these artist and musicians to be of great importance to why I enjoy some many different genres of music
Bob Marley, Earth Wind And Fire, The Doors, Third Eyed Blind, Ben Harper, Ed Sheeran, A Tribe Called Quest, Ludacris, Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Dub FX, Slightly Stupid, Sublime, Nirvana, Trap, Deadmaus5, Daft Punk, Taking Back Sunday, Hoobstank, Gorillaz, Stevie Vai,
Dwayne Allman, Jimi Hendrix, Sam Cooke, The Who, and Bone Thugs N Harmony
Non musician idols
My Father Willy who taught me to keep trying and always be true to yourself, and no one can tell you what you need but you. He has been my roadie for gig’s, and my camera man, plus one of biggest fans.
Leoando Da Vinci, Sir Issac Newton,
Plato, Socrates to name a few inspirations or insights that I have researched and found to speak to me.



What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?
love might website


The biggest tip for newcomers is just play your music for everyone. Make sure you listen to the people giving you advice, especially when those people are other artist, just make sure the advice your getting is worth taking it in. Not always but sometimes you will find people that will just not like the music or they are your competition. My biggest mistake was trying to please everyone with what they wanted to hear or what they thought was good music. I started making music to impress people instead of for myself. Find your message, your sound, your brand and once you do just believe in yourself and work hard towards your goal. Keep setting goals for yourself to achieve, because growth is what makes you….you. I lost sight of why I was doing music, writing, because I was too focused on the hype of what I was doing but not coming through. Make everything you do important and your best, because that’s all you can ask of yourself. The rest of the world will see that.



How do you get gigs? Can you share any tips?


I played open mics for about 4 years, played at house parties, and joined my fellow friends on gig’s helped them set up and tear down, cause sometimes when there is a break you can keep the party going but jumping in and doing a set of doing collabs together. I also worked on getting a resume together with music videos, platforms to listen to your music, places you played(videos as well). You have to be confident to sell yourself to a promoter, or owner to show them something they need and you can provide that. One of the biggest tips I can give you is Network, Network and did I say Network.

What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?

Myself. I get too much involved in my own head sometimes that it works against me rather for me. The way to overcome that is be honest with yourself. Once it’s established you can move past it and grow. Another challenge is knowing your audience and who your playing for writing for and how to reach them on a musical level. I’m constantly learning and always absorbing as much as I can, but know what will work for you may not work for others. In the end I always challenge myself so that I can adapt and survive in a world that challenge us daily. Stick to your plan and make moves.

How do you promote yourself? Do you have any specific promotion tips for other musicians?

Social media, and word of mouth. Connect with your fans. Don’t be fake because you’ll get called out in a second
Don’t pretend to be something your not just to get exposure, make a way for you to stand out above the rest, bring the attention to your craft, but make sure you can deliver what you promise.
