Code Girl is the latest project of guitarist and composer Mary Halvorson, and her first project for which she has composed both lyrics and music. The band has been described as “...a bold experiment in song form” by The New York Times. Deftly interpreted by Amirtha Kidambi (vocals), María Grand (saxophone, vocals), Adam O’Farrill (trumpet), Michael Formanek (bass) and Tomas Fujiwara (drums), the music synthesizes influences of jazz, folk and improvisation to create an original take on songwriting. Code Girl’s debut album was a top ten record in the annual NPR Jazz Critic’s Poll of 2018.

Halvorson's music has always had the capacity to surprise, but Code Girl amounts to the most startling move in her solo career.”

-Nate Chinen, NPR

“With strong compositions delivered by an excellent ensemble, the album's puzzles remain a treat to continually almost crack.”

-Justin Cober-Lake, PopMatters

“(Code Girl) is an album that touches upon various musical traditions in oblique fashion, but it’s most recognizable as yet another major step in Halvorson’s meteoric ascent.”

-Peter Margasak, bandcamp daily
