American drummer/percussionist Cody Byassee has established himself as a unique and versatile contributor to the music scene in his adopted home of Taipei. His extensive live performance and recorded work is not limited to any one genre. One day he might play pop/rock songs for a stadium crowd and the next he could be improvising in a small jazz club. Whether crafting rhythms on a standard drum set or a custom-designed hand percussion setup, Cody brings a sense of enthusiasm and professionalism to any musical situation he finds himself in.

His most frequent musical collaborations are with singer-songwriter Paige Su , and he is featured on her recently-released album “We Are All Lonely Souls”. Some of the other artists he has performed and/or recorded for include Jolin Tsai, Tanya Chua, Cheer, Joanna Wang, Waa Wei, Wan Fang, Cosmos People, and Yoyo Sham.

In addition to work in the Mandarin Pop genre, Cody also performs regularly with jazz and creative music artists such as the award-winning Sizhukong, Interestring Quartet, Indian-fusion group Coromandel Express, and at top jazz clubs and festivals around Taiwan, such as Brown Sugar, the Taichung Jazz Festival, and the Taipei Summer Jazz Festival.

Cody holds a Master's degree in Percussion Performance from the world-renowned University of North Texas College of Music and a Bachelor's in Music Education (specializing in percussion) from Oklahoma State University.
