Singer-songwriter Corey Harper releases his new track “Best of Me,” an honest, soulful, and emotive track captures you immediately and refuses to let go. The track is off Corey’s upcoming EP, Barely Put Together, out August 2nd via AWAL Recordings.LISTEN HERE.
The Topanga-based troubadour uncovers an era-spanning style of his own at the crossroads of traditional folk songcraft, impressive guitarwork, bluesy gusto, and 21st century pop adventurousness. The singer and songwriter sifts through a lifetime of influences in order to assemble a vibrant, vivid, and vital vision.
This poignant, passionate and personal style resounds throughout the upcoming EP.
It’s a mixture of popular music that I respect and the classics I grew up on, because they will always be a part of who I am. I started out by making a lot of Americana folk rock, but I really wanted to explore new sounds. For the first time, the new music reflects everything-from what inspired me to be a musician and a guitar player in the first place such as Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Jackson Browne to artists I’ve just discovered in recent years like Ed Sheeran. There are those songwriter elements as well as the modern nuances.– Corey Harper
