Nashville based, 24-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, 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.
After only a year of pursuing music at full go, Corey has become a prolific writer and has released an EP, and a full-length LP, with more music on the way. "August Blanket," Corey's most recent project and debut, is a reflection on heartbreak and longing, the ills of American society, and his spiritual discoveries via meditation.
