Chris Corkery / Bio

Born from the endless silo towns of the rural Midwest and its fertile music scene including Backyard Tire Fire and Chicago Farmer comes singer/songwriter Chris Corkery. Armed with a sound that is influenced by the beautiful heartbreak of singer songwriter Townes Van Zandt mixed with the roots based rock of Alejandro Escovedo and Chuck Prophet, Chris has been playing backwoods honky tonks and barrooms all around Illinois from Chicago to St Louis for the last 10 years. His songs could be called 'dusty roots pop' in some cases, but above all the vibe and sounscape he creates through the lyrical stories and melodies of his songs is something all his own. From cutting his teeth as frontman of the Bloomington Il heartland rock group The Dirty Hands Band, Chris has forged ahead in his solo outings to create something as heartfelt and unique that stands out from his peers in the Midwest music scene.
