FAME Presents: Jordan Corey

Debut EP “Truth” by upcoming, independent R&B and pop artist Jordan Corey is out now.
The five- song EP contains “Truth,” “Breaking All The Rules,” “Back to Life,” “Exit,” and “In Love,” produced by Los Angeles-based Brandon Howard, Steve Morales, Stacy Barthe, and Corey Chorus.

“Truth” addresses complex relationships and real-life hardships such as heartbreak, triumph, and true love.
The songs convey authentic-ity and originality, often appealing to generation X and Y females.

Some of Corey’s musical influences include Alicia Keys, Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, and Adele. “I admire artists with a strong presence.

I hope to be recognized as an artist with a distinct identity,” says Corey. In addition to R&B and soul, she considers the genres Motown, classic rock, and funk as heavy influences.

On May 15, 2010 Corey performed for a crowd of over 10,000 at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) Extravaganza music festival headlined by Drake and Chromeo. Corey performed as a lead singer for funk reggae soul band SoulMinded.

In 2007 she per- formed with theJOEband and won Clear Channel’s KFOX-FM’s Last Band Standing competition in San Jose, CA.

With theJOEband Corey performed classic rock songs such as “Come Together” and “Ohio” by The Beatles and Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, respectively.

“Truth” EP is exclusively promoted through social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

“Emerging musicians gain credibility primarily through approval from friends on social networking sites,” says Corey. “I plan to connect and engage with the empowered social networking community.”

Her YouTube chan- nel includes acoustic versions of “Truth” and “Breaking All The Rules” followed by covers of Lady Gaga, Adele, and Amy Winehouse songs.
