Cody Votolato (born May 19, 1982) is a musician from Redmond, Washington, best known for being the guitarist in the post-hardcore band The Blood Brothers.[1] He grew up in the eastside suburbs of Seattle' making burritos at Taco del Mar where he invented the legendary "Project Quesadilla" (intentionally mispronounced) with friend and collaborator Corey Alfano. Cody attended Redmond High School with his bandmates in the late 1990s when the band originally formed, graduating Spring of 2000. His accomplished thrashy and discordant style, exhibited in early Blood Brothers albums and in Head Wound City, has evolved into a more melodic and experimental sound in recent years [1]. Votolato's older brother Rocky Votolato is a folk musician and solo artist who played in the band Waxwing[2] with his brother, as well as with Rudy Gajadhar, the older brother of The Blood Brothers' drummer Mark Gajadhar. Votolato also contributed artwork to The Blood Brothers' album ...Burn, Piano Island, Burn. On September 4 2012, it was announced that Cody has joined Cold Cave as touring guitarist.
