Cody Baxter

My name is Cody Baxter. I come from the small town of Salado, TX, about an hour north of Austin. I currently play drums for the melodic metalcore band Avanti, basedout of Cincinnati, OH. I picked up drums at age 12, and played in bands all through high school. In 2013, I enlisted in the US Air Force, and met a singer from Ohio. We bonded, and both ended up honorably discharging in early 2014.

I moved to the Cincinnati area and started the band Avanti in May of 2014. Since then, we've taken our music all over the midwest, east coast, and the south. We host an annual touring charity festival called Forward Fest, bringing together bands in communities from Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and beyond.

Avanti is all about moving forward, through adversity, through anything. I feel it's my mission and my responsibility to bring that mentality to my audiences, through my music. Sempre Avanti
