The R.O.D. Project
The R.O.D. Project
THE R.O.D PROJECT...... Roderick Cudjo better known as "R.O.D" is the hottest R&B/Soul artist coming out the Bay Area in 2006. Following in the foot steps of artist like Keyshia Cole, Goapele, and Tone Tony Toni. R.O.D is poised to put the Bay Area back on the map for R&B/Soul. Using his talents for singing which were instilled by his father and from participating in the church's choir as a youth, R.O.D has been able to create his own unique sound. If one was forced to draw comparisons, R.O.D's sound is a cross between the smooth expressive essence of modern R&B sensation DWELE and the rich gospel flavor of soul legend Stevie Wonder. R.O.D is the element the music industry has been lacking and is conquering the Bay Area by storm and soon the World. R.O.D. landed a #` hit on KMEL in 2010 with the single "Can't Stand You" produced by EVENODDS artist/producer Money Alwayz, which landed him a single deal with E1 Records (fka Koch Records) and the video aired as "New Joint of the Day" on BET's 106 and Park!
