Jody Reynolds (born Ralph Joseph Reynolds on December 3, 1932, Denver, Colorado, died November 7, 2008 in Palm Desert, California, aged 75) was an American singer and guitarist. His biggest hit single was "Endless Sleep", which reached #5 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart on July 7, 1958. He wrote it in a single afternoon in 1956 in Yuma, Arizona. The song was later one of Hank Williams Jr.'s first singles, hitting #46 on the country charts in 1964.

Reynolds' follow-up song, "Fire of Love", managed only #66 on the charts in August 1958; it was Reynolds' last charting hit.

In 1999, a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs, California, Walk of Stars was dedicated to him.[1]

Reynolds grew up in Shady Grove, Oklahoma. He died on November 7, 2008 of liver cancer at 75.[2]
