Nashville based, 25-year-old singer-songwriter Corey Leiter is fascinated by the power of a song. Especially the feeling of raw emotion behind a guitar lick or melody, or the way a lyric can make you rethink. Corey recognizes this and is constantly exploring its possibilities. Corey has always been known for his laid-back demeanor, his ability to listen and to soak in his surroundings, which has always made him someone to confide in. His music is a reflection of his personality, in that it’s characterized by smooth and melodic instrumentation, a diverse range of influences, and thoughtful lyrics that aim to soothe the troubled soul. Corey is greatly inspired by the moving songwriting of John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Jeff Buckley, Van Morrison, Jim James. Writers that push the boundaries of a song and turn it into something much more meaningful. He hopes that his music can someday become a tool to better understand the true meaning of love and the complex human condition, and to just make people feel good.
Since dedicating his life to music in 2015, Corey has become a prolific writer and has managed to release two EPs and two full-length LPs. "Son in the Sun," Corey's most recent project, was released on August 21st, 2017, to coincide with the Great American Solar Eclipse. It is an artistic statement that refuses to fall under one specific genre. It ebbs and flows between folk-rock, blue-eyed soul, and psychedelic, but is always centered around his acoustic guitar and his emotionally raw and poetic lyrics.
