COREY LEGGE - 2021 BIO
Corey Legge plays heartfelt Alt-Country and Folk-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 four 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’ with award-winning producer Ben Edwards (Julia Jacklin, Marlon Williams). Corey returned to New Zealand in late 2019 to record his follow up album, ‘Some Days’, which was released on September 1st 2020. The album title track was a semi-finalist in the 2020 International Songwriting Competition.
Corey’s 2nd album ‘Some Days’ features the singles ‘Last Night I Dreamt of You’, ‘Fireball’, ‘Some Days’ and ‘I Don’t Know What I’ve Got Myself in For’, and has been warmly received by the media and fans alike. Corey is set to release his 3rd album in 2022, with extensive Australian and European album launch tours.
