Coming Up: Corey R-J & the Colony

Staff Reports • Jul 26, 2013 at 5:07 PM

Corey R-J & the Colony, his full electric band, will be performing at The Acoustic Coffeehouse on Sunday, Aug. 4 at 8 p.m.

Corey will be accompanied by George Carberry on bass guitar, Bryan Carrara on drums and Kara Miller on keyboards-vocals-percussion,

Upcoming musician, producer, and singer/songwriter, Corey R-J, originally of Rhode Island, has recently relocated to Boston in the hope of further establishing himself within the music industry.

Corey uses styles of rock, pop and jazz influenced from artists such as The Early November, Minus The Bear and The Rocket Summer to write, record and produce all instruments and material to create his own original sound.

Since 2004, Corey has been writing, recording and performing with various local artists across New England and has only in recent years begun as a solo musician.

Recently, Corey has re-recorded various vocals and entirely re-mixed the “Time and Travels” EP and will release the album this summer mastered by engineer Roger Seibel, who has worked with artists such as Death Cab for Cutie, Andrew Bird and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. Each song on the EP documents a life experience, struggle, change and growth that has ultimately determined life within the last 2.5 years of making the album.

“I have honestly never put so much effort into something than I have on this album,” Corey said in a news release. “For many people that have seen me at shows or met me in person have hopefully experienced the dedication, passion and love I have for music. Their support goes a long way as I push down the road and they are what makes it possible to be one step closer to pursuing my love for music as a career.”

The Acoustic Coffeehouse is located at 415 W. Walnut St. For more information about the artist, visit www.coreyrj.com. For more information about the show, call 434-9872 or visit www.acousticcoffeehouse.net.
