Bio

Corey sings from the pages of her personal diary, performs with a neo soul band, lives The Gospel and serves inspirational songs to a crowd of music lovers from every nation.

So what do you get when a higher power joins believers, “half” believers and unbelievers together in ONE BAND? A Supernatural Musical Experience of the Power of Love that leads to Respect & Transformation. An extraordinary and beautiful front row view of how music brings people together on and off stage. Darkness turns into light, doubt into trust and division into unity. This highly talented band is no slave to the music but masters the music to work according to what it’s purposed for: A dialog of LOVE, UNITY, HOPE & POWER! Not being the typical gospel band, we’ve found that the result of this unusual formation is an amazing experience where faith meets reality and by Grace produces miracles, signs and wonders for all involved. Not only does this take place among us, but Love touches the heart of every crowd we cater to.

Together with John Keys, the musical director of The Soulminded Band, we aim to release a cd and live dvd of the new testament of Corey’s new life before the end of the year. This cd/dvd combi will be a visual treat for the eyes to see and the ears to hear. A personal and up close invitation to step into her world. At the moment we’re either on stage or in the studio working on some powerful tracks preparing for the BIG BANG. We have a world wide view and are ready to take the world by storm. If there are any labels interested to join us in our quest, major or independent, of course feel free to contact us because we aim for a world wide release. (See contact info)

How did Corey start out?
In the mid 1970s a Jamaican woman and a Dutch diplomat fall in love and they have a child they name Corey. Young Corey grows up in a number of countries and is influenced by different cultures, something which put a mark on who she is and the way she goes through life as an adult. After settling in the Netherlands Corey is still unaware of her musical talents, but when she reaches the age of ten, she starts singing. Corey soon realizes that she may have found her calling.

Things start to develop
After her teenage years Corey starts singing professionally and after surviving AMATURE NIGHT AT THE APOLLO HARLEM NY!! She sings her way to the top of the Dutch Soul and R&B scene This is rewarded with:
* Award for Best Dutch Female R&B Singer in 1997 and 1998.
* Being part of the “No Sweat” compilation album and tour (1998)
* A deal with Skillz Records (1997)
* A first single feat. Rapper Sadat X (Brand Nubian): “Everything but Love” (1997)
* Opening for artists like KC & JoJo, Adina Howard and others.

The Restart
Late 2001 a fertile collaboration with soulful hip-hop producer Jay.Soul is born. They record the 4-song demo The Rebirth EP which ends up being a huge success in after sales and Corey & Jay decide to release it independently.
The Rebirth EP also leads to nrolment in the biggest annual music contest of the Netherlands, De Grote Prijs van Nederland (Dutch Grand Prix). In December 2002, she ends up going home as the winner!
In the period that follows, Corey performs all over Holland, records and releases a 6-song CD-Single Deluxe It Ain’t Me (2003), and appears in various radio/tv shows and in the press (incl. Cosmopolitan, Viva, Marie-Claire, Volkskrant, Parool, Raymann is Laat, Goedemorgen Nederland, AT5, RTVNH, Radio 3FM).
Release Movin’on Album (2006)

2007 Recharged
A new diary of songs accompanied by The Soulminded Band she tours around the world to present her autobiographic songs of Hope, Love and Salvation to anyone who is willing to listen. From concert arena’s to prison halls their work has succeeded to be a voice in the wilderness, a shining light in the midst of darkness.

Gifted enough to touch any crowd, Corey rocks the stage from club Asylum Kingston Jamaica to North Sea Jazz Holland.

More then good music, More then a good message, A life changing experience!
