A compelling hybrid of west-coast-pop-energy and east-coast-jam-band-spirit fuel the songs written by singer-songwriter Cory Allen Staats. A native of the central coast of California, he has spent the last four years playing on stages all around Boston while finishing two degrees at Berklee College of Music. Cory is not just a skilled singer and guitar player, he has often surprised audiences by pulling out his saxophone during the set and jamming along with the band. A storyteller at heart, Cory is always searching for a new perspective: “To take a typical situation and be able to tell a story you’ve never heard, that is the goal I start with before writing every song.” Whether an acoustic show, or with the band, Cory Allen Staats is one of New England's newest must-see acts!
Message from Cory:
I’ve found that I’ve spent most of my life immersed in just about every aspect of music; writing, performing, teaching, recording, running live sound... Simply put, music is in my bones. When I first enrolled at Berklee College of Music in Boston, I was determined to become a recording engineer. But after a lot of growing up and soul searching, I found my true passion. Songwriting. I had feelings and ideas that I wanted to communicate, and really, I wanted to connect with people – must be the oxytocin. Songs have a way of bringing people together. Sharing ideas and emotions that are universal, but that everyone experiences differently.
Hope you enjoy the music!
