‘Last Night I Dreamt Of You’, the first single from Corey Legge’s forthcoming new album, is released on Thursday April 2 and to celebrate this Corey has announced three very special live streaming online performances.
Last Night I Dreamt of You – Bedroom Sessions: Sunday April 5, Friday April 10, Wednesday April 15. (All performances are from 5-7pm). Check out his Facebook page for further details: Corey Legge
Corey Legge plays heartfelt alt-country, folk and rock, drawing influence from his wholesome upbringing amongst the fertile pastures surrounding Bega. Corey’s music is said to be reminiscent of James Taylor, Chris Stapleton and Passenger, with “mesmerising guitar work and smooth vocal ear-worms that will get stuck in your head for days”.
The recipient of a prestigious ‘Young Regional Artist Scholarship’ from the NSW government 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).
‘Driving out of Eden’ was released in February 2019, sparking considerable interest from a number of high profile radio stations and artists worldwide.
Corey’s debut single, also titled ‘Driving out of Eden’, was played numerous times on both Triple J and Double J national radio in Australia, and was named ‘Song of the Week’ in early March 2019 on ‘Blues and Roots Radio’ worldwide, achieving airplay in the UK, Ireland, Central Europe, Canada, USA, and Australia. The single was rated 4/5 stars by Triple J ‘Roots n All’ presenter Nkechi Anele on the day it was released, which is an impressive feat for a debut single.
Perhaps most notably, a video of Corey Legge performing was shared by legendary US singer-songwriter James Taylor to his millions of social media followers, along with the link to Corey’s debut music video ‘Driving out of Eden’. ‘Driving out of Eden’ was listed as one of the best records of 2019 by Henry Wagons (Double J).
Now based in the coastal steel city of Wollongong, Corey is set to release his highly anticipated second album Some Days in mid-2020.
For obvious reasons Corey has had to postpone his tour of Europe which included solo performances across the Netherlands and Germany. It is hoped that these can be rescheduled for later in the year. Similarly, Australian audiences can expect to see Corey kick it up a gear later in 2020, with a number of solo and 4-piece band performances across the country as soon as these can be safely performed.
