"Annie Zaleski"

"The chameleonic singing of Corey Saathoff creaks like a well-adjusted version of Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis in some places and twangs like a grizzled alt-country troubadour in others. Worth checking out? Most definitely."
- Riverfront Times

"Laura Hamlet"

"Corey Saathoff's one of our town's undersung talents, to be sure. The music's not flashy or hip, but rather honest, true." - Playback STL magazine

"KDHX 88.1 FM"

"One of St. Louis's more underrated songwriters, Corey Saathoff combines front porch twang and thoughtful, prescient lyrics, sung with plainspoken honesty." -


Still working on that hot first release.



A fixture on the St. Louis music scene for over a decade, Corey Saathoff delivers a unique brand of country, folk and rock songsmanship with passion and precision.

His first band, Jerkwater Junction (1997-2000), performed a number of times in and around the Gateway City, with the pleasure of sharing the stage with such notable acts as Slobberbone, Split Lip Rayfield, The Mary Janes and Lullaby for the Working Class. Jerkwater Junction also played the first-ever Lot Festival in St. Louis.

Following a solo stint in which he issued two self-released EPs (Fresh, Troubling Times), Saathoff formed the indie-rock outfit Brain Regiment in 2003. This band put out two critically acclaimed EPs (Ancient Spaceman, Dissolution) before disbanding in 2007. Brain Regiment opened up for national acts Brian Jonestown Massacre, Marah, Visqueen, The Waxwings and Head of Femur, among others.

Brain Regiment's final album is available on iTunes.

In addition to these highlights, Saathoff has opened as solo act for the Bottle Rockets, Drag the River and Bobby Bare Jr., among others. He also performed at the first-ever PLAY:stl Fest in 2007; the first annual Southern Illinois Songwriters Festival in June 2008 and as part of Twangfest 13 in 2009.
