After noteworthy performances this summer at BottleRock, Sasquatch, and Bonnaroo, Corey brought his signature sound on the road this Fall, performing at festivals and opening for Niall Horan on select dates.
The 22-year-old has also managed to capture the attention of celebrities, fans, and the media alike – all without the machinery of a major label. Justin Bieber recently shared an Instagram post about his appreciation of Corey’s music, CLICK HERE to see Instagram post.
Harper has crafted his own distinct style from the influences of his childhood. His parents raised him on a steady diet of 60s/70s rock and soul music as well as some of the great new singer / songwriters. He cites artists such as John Mayer, Ben Howard, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bob Dylan, and B.B. King as major influences.
Corey studied music and literature history classes in Eugene, Oregon shortly before dropping out to pursue his career in music in Los Angeles, California. Settling in Venice Beach – an epicenter for artists, surfers and poets alike – Corey tapped into the inspiration around him not only to create his debut EP, On The Run, but also a collective called Winston House. In many ways, Winston House began as just a house. But over the past few years, talented people from all over the world have come through to hang out and create together. By creating and being an integral part of this community of dreamers and artists, Corey was able to hit the road with his music opening up for American soul musician Allen Stone as well as Bieber. The latter asked Corey to open for him on the Purpose Tour’s Pacific Northwest dates after seeing him play at Winston House in Venice, CA.
