Closer To You - EP


Feeling a bit camera shy



Corey Franklin decided to pursue music when he asked his parents for his first guitar when he was in the 10th grade. Soon after he began songwriting and he’s been making music a priority ever since.

Originally from Seaford, Delaware, Corey joined his high school choir his junior year and became interested in vocal training and gained an appreciation for vocal and music theory. He enjoyed much success with the choir and received several high honors (such as winning the national chorale men’s choir division at Virginia Beach in 1995). It was through this experience that Corey learned to appreciate the live performance aspect of music. Shortly thereafter Corey started booking and playing live shows with his original music around his hometown where he garnered a substantial following.

Right out of high school Corey married and welcomed their first child. It was during this time that Corey committed his life to God and began attending church. At the encouragement of his sister-in-law, Corey began to lead worship at their small bible study group. It was there that Corey’s passion for worship was birthed and resulted in meeting the people that would later form Corey’s first band “Salt Treated”.

After a year of attending a local church, Bay Shore Community, Corey was asked to sing special music, which as a result opened the door for more invitations to sing. He was later asked to be the full-time worship leader and youth pastor. With a newfound sense of purpose, he realized how much he could positively affect people through music pertaining to the Gospel.

Amazed at watching how worship transforms and prepares hearts, Corey’s passion led him to write songs that exclusively glorified God. After a couple years at the church and playing out extensively with “Salt Treated”, having developed a solid local following, and at the encouragement of family and friends, Corey decided to take his music to the next level to pursue his calling.

With the help of his brother-in-law, he contacted record producer Chris Estes of Bestes Music Productions in Nashville. The two immediately began collaborating on what would be Corey’s first debut effort entitled, “Closer to You.”

Currently, Corey is busy promoting his new album. Since the album’s September 1st release, it has already garnered considerable major label attention as well as selling 1,500 copies locally. The first single, ‘Lord You Are Holy,’ is gaining spins on several Christian stations across the country.
