"Folk-rocker Corey Harper has already gained acclaim from both fans and media alike, all without having released his debut EP." - Billboard
"...Harper deliver a soft, John Mayer-inspired ballad complete with some understated electric guitar towards the end." - American Songwriter "With vocals that suggest Harper as John Mayer's breezier fraternal twin, his tunes are a mix of Seventies country-rock touched by Mississippi blues." - Rolling Stone "...Oregon native Corey Harper shows how much emotion you can deliver with just a guitar and your voice." - Baeble Music "While the heroic influences are obvious, the sound remains uniquely Harper's own" - Artist Direct
April 13, 2017 - Hailing from Portland, 21-year-old American singer/songwriter Corey Harperpremieres his new track "Favorite Part of Loving You" today. PRESS HERE to listen. Harper has crafted his own distinct style from the influences of his childhood. His parents raised him on a steady diet of 60s/70s rock and soul music as well as some of the great new singer / songwriters. He cites artists such as John Mayer, Ben Howard, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bob Dylan, and B.B. King as major influences.
In my mind, i think this song is a way of being able to grasp the idea of moving on without a bitter taste in my mouth, and heal the wounds that were left, ironically with the flashbacks of reciprocal feelings that person gave you during the lovely moments. The song re-paints the darker canvas of an era in my life with brighter colors to look back on, and carry through into a new one. - Corey Harper Corey studied music and literature history classes in Eugene, Oregon shortly before dropping out to pursue his career in music in Los Angeles, California. Settling in Venice Beach - an epicenter for artists, surfers and poets alike - Corey tapped into the inspiration around him to not only create his upcoming debut EP but also a collective called Winston House. In many ways, Winston House began as just a house. But over the past few years, talented people from all over the world have come through to hang out and create together. By creating and being an integral part of this community of dreamers and artists, Corey was able to hit the road with his music opening up forAmerican soul musician Allen Stone as well as Justin Bieber. The latter asked Corey to open for him on the Purpose Tour's Pacific Northwest dates after seeing him play at Winston House in Venice, CA.
