Eric Yang always knew he would be prolific while growing up in a small town in North Carolina. Learning various instruments such as guitar, piano, and drums growing up, Eric knew music was his passion. Shortly after, Kodoku was born. Having big dreams in a small town may be more ambitious than most, and Kodoku suffered consequences. He was an outcast during his high school years, but that only added fuel to the flame. When the time came to choose what to do after high school, Kodoku faced going to the military or college.
Instead, he decided to double down on his passion. In 2021, less than a month after graduating high school, Kodoku saw great promise when his song “Hennessy” gained attention on TikTok. Since then, it has received nearly 3 million views on TikTok and almost two million streams on Spotify. Kodoku proved to his skeptics that this wouldn’t be the only time, coming back with another TikTok sensation immediately after for his song “Rose Bath.” It has since received over 2 million views on TikTok and 2 million streams on Spotify.
Now Kodoku returns with “Toxins,” which has already achieved over 3 Million views on TikTok, proving to the artist that he is here to stay. Inspired by artists like Post Malone, Justin Bieber, and Sam Smith, Kodoku aspires to bring a versatile yet infectious sound. Without a doubt, 2022 is looking to be a momentous year for Kodoku.
Toxins is set to drop December 15th and is produced by his close friend Nick Nash alongside Theevoni.
