“Live from Buckhead” Available 5/15/20

Corey is excited to announce his upcoming album “Live from Buckhead”! Here is a note from Corey regarding this release…
“Back in December of 2018, we performed two shows at the Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta, GA. I had a feeling something special would happen on those chilly nights. The tickets were selling fast. My friends and family were driving into the city for the event. The band and I had been on a hot streak and were locked in like never before. The room itself had a special place in my heart because it was the old Roxy, where I played my breakout shows in ATL back in the day. The production was gonna be top notch. The place was gonna be jumping. You get the point. The stars were lining up, so I decided to capture both audio and video footage of each show.
I intended to release a live album of the shows shortly thereafter. However, I got sidetracked working on other material and navigating a busy touring schedule. I ended up putting the project on the back burner, as I often do. In retrospect, I’m glad I did.
If there was ever a great time to relive a wonderful memory of the live music experience, it is now (for obvious reasons). Working on the finishing touches of this project the past few weeks has been an overwhelming joy. Yes. It’s been emotional at times, forcing me to realize how deeply I miss the stage, my band and crew and the connection with the fans. However, it’s also filled me with a profound sense of gratitude that I’ve been able to make so many wonderful memories over the past 15 years or so. The roar of a crowd, the chemistry of a well-tuned band, the nervous energy, the thump of a kick drum, voices rising together in the air, the sound of limits being stretched: these are things I’ve been able to experience again through this project. They are things I once took for granted, but never will again.
I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get on stage with my band and perform for you all again, but until that evening comes, I hope Live from Buckhead will give you the type of satisfaction it has given me. Stay tuned and please mark your calendar. May 15 y’all.”
