Space Discovery: Corey El
Welcome to Space guys!!
For today’s Space Discovery, we’re going to introduce an incredible band with some real straight-up groove! Following up we’re going to share a nice chat we had with this great musician.
The main vocalist Corey El (also the name of the project) is a young and talented lad from Richmond, Virginia. Together with his father, who is a multi-instrumentalist, and other members of the band, they recorded their latest album called Good Soul, formed of 10 stunning tracks.
The album is a mix of funk, soul, and r&b in the 1970/90’s key, featuring groovy drums, slappy basses, funky guitars, and energetic vocal lines! But also have some more intimate and soft tracks which we enjoyed a lot, giving the album a sort of balance and making it very smooth and pleasant to listen to.
Our favorite was definitely Try It, we loved the remarkable guitars and the extremely confident vocals that got stuck in our head!
This is some incredible stuff that you really can’t miss out on, We’ll wait for some new releases in the meanwhile!
Welcome Corey El!
Congratulations on your new album release! Briefly present yourself to our Space Travellers!
Space Travellers, what’s up! I’m Corey El, an artist/producer based in Virginia, and I just released my latest project “Gold Soul”
What’s the story behind your album?
My dad always played me music from when he was growing up. He mainly played Cameo, Earth Wind & Fire, and The Jackson 5. Prior to this album I primarily wrote R&B and hip hop, but was inspired to produce an old school, funk album after listening to “Off the Wall” with my dad and Alvin Spratley.
What are your plans for the future?
To continue to make music that moves me and can connect with other people.
If you had a time machine, in which era would you travel and which kind of music would you bring with you in the past?
I’d probably travel to the 70s and bring “To Pimp a Butterfly” with me. I think the funk/jazz guys of that time would appreciate it.
