Hello there, My name is Corey R-J. I am an musician, producer, and singer/songwriter, originally from small town Rhode Island, but have recently relocated to Boston, MA in hopes of further establishing myself within the music industry. Since 2004, I have been writing, recording, and performing with various local acts across New England. Using styles of rock, pop, and jazz influenced from artists such as, The Early November, Minus The Bear, and The Rocket Summer I am able to write, record and self-produce material to create my own original sound.
Beginning in 2010 I recorded and released my first electric EP entitled “Here I Am.” in February 2010, followed by an acoustic EP entitled “& The Acoustics” released as an [A Side] in March 2012. In support of “& The Acoustics” release I embarked on a short acoustic tour throughout the New England/Tri-State Area in March 2012. Additionally, in July 2012, I initially independently released the “Time and Travels” EP and it was supported by a full electric band tour throughout the north/southeast U.S.
Most recently, I have re-recorded various vocals and instruments and entirely re-mixed the “Time and Travels” EP. The album was re-released on July 30, 2013 mastered by engineer Roger Seibel, who has worked with artists such as Death Cab for Cutie, Andrew Bird, A Great Big Pile of Leaves and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. Each song on the EP documents a life experience, struggle, change, growth, etc that has ultimately determined my life within the last 2.5 years of producing the album. I have honestly never put so much effort into something than I have on this album. In support of the re-release, accompanied by George Carberry, Kara Miller and Brian Dlhopolsky as “Corey R-J & the Colony” we began touring throughout the east coast and mid-west U.S. throughout July-August 2013.
For many people that have seen me at shows or met me in person have hopefully experienced the dedication, passion and love I have for music. Their support goes a long way as I push down the road and they are what ultimately makes it possible to be one step closer to pursuing my love for music as a career.
