COREY LEGGE - 2022 BIO
Corey Legge plays heartfelt alt-country and rock, drawing influence from his wholesome upbringing amongst the fertile pastures surrounding Bega (NSW). Corey has released two albums in two years, ‘Driving out of Eden’ (2019) and ‘Some Days’ (2020), landing him high rotation on ABC Country, and regular airplay on KIX Country, Double J and Triple J. Corey’s most popular single to date ‘I Don’t Know What I’ve Got Myself in For’ landed at #2 on the Australian Country Radio charts, which led to six film clips being added to CMT on Foxtel. Corey’s music has also been shared by the legendary James Taylor.
The recipient of a prestigious ‘Young Regional Artist Scholarship’ from Create NSW in 2018, Corey subsequently flew to New Zealand to record his debut solo album ‘Driving out of Eden’ and 2nd album ‘Some Days’ with award-winning producer Ben Edwards (Julia Jacklin, Marlon Williams). The ‘Some Days’ album title track was a semi-finalist in the 2020 International Songwriting Competition.
After having received funding from Create NSW for his 3rd studio album, Corey recently recorded with award-winning country producer Matt Fell at Love Hz Studios in Sydney, with the album set to be released in March 2022. The 1st single ‘Cemetery Kids’ was released in late August 2021 along with a nostalgic 90’s style home video film clip, while 2nd single ‘Love You & Leave You’ was released on Friday 12th November 2021 and was premiered by Australian country icon Beccy Cole on ABC Country. The single has since been added to high rotation on ABC Country and the film clip has been added to rotation on CMT on Foxtel.
‘’A national treasure in the making.’’
