Corey Kilgannon has released the track “As Above, So Below” in anticipation of the upcoming August 23rd release of his album by the same name. Arguably the most politically charged album of his discography yet, Kilgannon unabashedly addresses a variety of human issues: depression, oppression, feminism, social justices, LGBQT, racism, and many other cultural topics. In “As Above, So Below” Kilgannon remarks on the tragedy of unnecessarily taking a human life: “My black friend got shot for running a stop sign, when he reached for his insurance the cop killed him outright. This clown we elected couldn’t call it a crime, should make every decent man cry.” This single showcases the brutally honest, raw, and emotionally evocative lyrics that Kilgannon displays throughout the entirety of the album. “As Above, So Below” is available for listening on all major platforms.
Featured among heavy-weights of the folk music scene in three of Spotify’s Acoustic playlists, Kilgannon boasts over 350,000 monthly listeners. The therapeutic process behind each song is clear as his rich, yet conversational voice soars over lyrics set against a backdrop of acoustic and atmospheric textures. Kilgannon’s gift for evocative melody and emotionally intuitive songwriting has led him to share stages with artists like JOHNNYSWIM, Jon Foreman, John Paul White , JOSEPH , Penny & Sparrow, David Ramirez, and the late Dr. Ralph Stanley, among others.The emerging indie-folk artist has built up a considerable fanbase in cities across the country becoming known for radically stripped down sets under bridges to room-quieting performances in packed out venues.
