Greetings and Love. I'm Cody ChesnuTT.
I'm releasing a new album. The title of this album is Landing On A Hundred.
Landing on a hundred. What does that mean?
Landing on something truthful. Landing on something purposeful...something meaningful.
This body of work is extremely meaningful to me because it represents the journey I have been on since I last released an album. To give you a little history about this record, it was recorded in Memphis, TN at Al Green's old studio, Royal Studios. It was also recorded in Cologne, Germany at a studio by the name of SuPow which is owned and run by a great friend of mine, the co- producer of the album, Patrice Bart-Williams.
Words cannot describe or express how excited I am about this music and I am doing this Kickstarter project so that you can participate in getting the music to you - getting the music out to the people.
In exchange for joining me on this journey, I would like to share with you some exclusive personalized items.

Additional Package Info:
***PLEASE NOTE: All Landing On A Hundred vinyl LP packages also come with a digital download of the album.***
***All $50 pledges and above have the choice between the Landing On A Hundred vinyl LP package or CD.***
Black Skin No Value EP: Black Skin No Value is a bridge body of work that speaks to an issue that is still very prevalent in our society - the value that is placed on black life.
Custom Eco-Friendly T-Shirt: Sustainability is important to me - sustainability of people and the sustainability of communities. When we speak about being eco-friendly, we are addressing the preservation of life itself. T-shirt design will be inspired from the Landing On A Hundred song, "I've Been Life."
Cody's Collection of Three Favorite Records and Books - Miles Davis Albums, Sketches Of Spain and Kind Of Blue, and National Bestseller The Warmth Of Other Suns Book by Isabel Wilkerson (Winner of The Pulitzer Prize): Kind Of Blue was my initiation to jazz. All of the songs on both albums put me in a "place" - they are very cinematic. The Warmth Of Other Suns is a thorough depiction of the African American experience, specifically addressing the great migration of this community across the United States. It provided immeasurable insight about a determined people and their claim of upward mobility.
