Hi Cory, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I have been fabulous; I hope you are as well!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Somebody’s Heart”?
I really love this song, I am so glad to finally get it out there.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
It is a song I wrote a few years ago. I saw a new cute girl at work, and she was shorter than me… that line in the song “You Make Me Feel Tall” was actually a laugh out loud moment for me because I am short in stature, and I loved that she was shorter than me.
Any plans to release any sort of video for the track?
Yes, it just released today here is the youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ST38F6sqfU
How was the recording and writing process?
The writing process was easy. Production was difficult, I had to go through a few producers until I found someone to embrace my vision, not theirs.
What role does NJ play in your music?
I think the fact that I am pretty direct, we all are in NJ lol, it helps keep me honest in my songwriting. Most of my songs are written from my own experiences, so living here is always the backdrop.
Having found success on Tik Tok – how does this influences your work and approach as a musician? Do you tend to take this platform in consideration while writing?
For my last release “Someone” I wrote that song based on my experience of being autistic. Getting on tiktok helped me discover myself more, it makes me truthful in my lyrics and not afraid to share who I am.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes, I am recording my next song in a few weeks.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
It should drop in September.
What else is happening next in Cory Singer’s world?
Well, I am also a theater actor, and I am opening a show (FINALLY) tomorrow night. I am in Sondheim’s “Side by Side”. It feels good to be doing one of the things I love most of all after the year and half we have all had.
