Prepare to meet Cory Lee, a bold and beautiful new force who's about to shake up the world of music. A talented new artist with attention grabbing vocals, irresistable song writing and killer dance moves, this eur-asian canadian born singer/songwriter is ready to heat things up.

Biography

She possesses a distinctive Eurasian beauty that disarms the most cynical of people, with piercing eyes that flash seductive hints of her inner mystery. A blessing of Chinese and German parents, Cory Lee is a dangerous multi-threat actress, singer, songwriter, dancer and model. Initially her music caught fire in the clubs across Canada; radio soon followed with her first single “The Naughty Song.” nominated for a Juno Award.

Her sophomore album Sinful Innocence was released through WIDEawake/Universal in Canada and Village Again in Japan. Featuring production from multi-platinum and 3-time Juno Award winner Perry Alexander (Keshia Chante, Shawn Desman) and KUYA (Nelly, Ginuwine, MASE), Sinful Innocence enthusiastically explores society’s “good girl/bad girl” double-standard from Cory’s own independent liberal perspective.

So, who is Cory Lee?

Born and raised in Vancouver B.C., she grew up immersed in a musical environment. At age 15, Cory turned down an offer from Sony Hong Kong to join an all-girls group called Ris-K. Ris-K did not sustain, but Cory persevered. Eager to explore her Chinese roots and to see the world, in 2002, Cory joined another group called NRG performing in Hong Kong. Things went well until the unfortunate SARS outbreak hit Asia and Cory returned home to focus on a solo career.

Cory aligned with Vancouver-based Hipjoint Productions, and achieved “indy-cred” with her debut album What a Difference a Day Makes. Its flagship single “The Naughty Song” was initially released through the club scene where it caught fire within a week, which in addition to the Juno nomination scored nominations for a 2006 Indie Music Award for Pop Artist of The Year and 2 Canadian Radio Music Awards.

In conjunction with “The Naughty Song”, her second video and single “Goodbye” put her on the Top-10 list of DJ’s and radio stations nationwide. This huge club and radio buzz were instrumental in “The Naughty Song” appearing on the Showtime hit The L Word, with “The Naughty Song” selected for the show’s album soundtrack. The songs’ mass appeal prompted an invitation to perform at the soundtrack’s launch in Los Angeles.

From the start of Sinful Innocence, Cory’s sensuous vocals seduce you. Her ballad “Cold December” reveals warm romantic regrets. Her first single “No Shoes No Shirt” takes a playful stab at the gold-digger in everybody while “Sex Me Slow” is a whisper-in-the-ear slow jam to the fellas, right down to what she needs him to do.

“Ovaload” showcases Cory Lee in the club and on the prowl. “Part of the reason I named the album Sinful Innocence is because everyone asks “ Is Cory Lee a good girl or is she a bad girl?” she explains, “Because I write so much stuff that’s so sexual, I don’t think in this day and age that young girls have to be either. People are complex, and just because you’re a freak, it doesn’t mean you’re cheap and just because you’re emotional, doesn’t mean you’re weak.”

Acting and music are Cory’s current mediums of choice. The first single “No Shoes No Shirt” is taking radio by storm with the video shot by award-winning director R.T! At the same time, she joined the cast of teen drama series Instant Star, produced by Degrassi producers Epitome Pictures, to air in 2007, playing the role of Karma, the newly crowned Instant Star. The show, which airs in 120-plus countries, including CTV in Canada the “N” Channel in the US, can be accessed by over 45 million digital cable viewers. One might wonder how such a highly sexually charged artist as Cory Lee could also be perfect for one of Canada’s top teen shows. Cory’s answer is no person is any one thing; we all have many facets to who we are.

Who says one can’t be sinfully innocent? Maybe Cory Lee will just keep us guessing.

VERSE1
Your pockets are swell it looks like you’re doing well
