Sophomore LP "Son in the Sun" Available Now
Nashville Five // Corey Leiter- Lockeland Springsteen
By Sean McHugh
Reverence towards the written word is an affinity that’s become increasingly absent within the matrimony of music and songwriting; one demands less of the other, and there’s rarely a balance with regard to form of function.But every so often, there are artists that emerge conceivably out of nowhere, reinvigorating the otherwise dwindling spirit between the two, a promising confluence between both the historically prosaic and aesthetic sides of music, all the while peppering in personal experience with the greatest of ease.Corey Leiter... has managed to extend such sensibilities on his debut LP, August Blanket, incorporating personal stories ranging from terminal disappointment to happy solitude, all with a smooth groove and crystalline tone.While August Blanket is only Leiter’s first full-length, his self-actualized personal narrative will undoubtedly serve the 24-year old well in each follow-up endeavor.
Everyone has someone they want to champion. Corey Leiter is on such person for us at Now/It’s. He’s a solid songwriter whose blazed a trail for himself through independence of both spirit and art. In maintaining his independence, Leiter has managed to release two LP’s, his debut ‘August Blanket’ in 2016, and the upcoming ‘Son in the Sun,’ set to release in accordance with the first solar eclipse in 38 years on August 21st. The record is forthright and literary in its lyrical content, as well as prodigious and technical in its composition. Now/It’s met up with Leiter to talk about ‘Son in the Sun,’ as well as the trials and tribulations of being a truly independent artist. So read on to familiarize yourself with one of the most centered artists in Nashville.
