Bio

After picking up his first guitar at thirteen, Cory Sellers began playing in his church’s youth group band as a backup rhythm guitar player. Soon thereafter, he stepped in front of a microphone and began leading music and performing on a regular basis throughout Alabama. Cory wrote his first batch of songs before graduating high school and while attending Auburn University, he continued to play, sing, and write music both as part of an acoustic group and as a solo artist. In August 2002, Cory recorded his debut acoustic album entitled "This Side of Ordinary." The first song Gotta Get Back appeared on an episode of ABC Familys Knock First.

In the summer of 2004, Cory moved to Atlanta, GA and continued to play live shows in and around the Atlanta area. He plays in venues of all types connecting with one crowd at a time, capturing them with his original blend of melodic pop country and southern soul.

Cory’s newest album will be released in October of this year, and features a backbone of soul, rock, and pop sounds that stem from his influences such as Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Jeff Buckley, and Van Morrison. However, there is a truly unique element to the record in that each song infuses unmistakably country elements; from the use of fiddles, banjos, mandolins, and steel guitars, to lyrics about waking up in a “Chattahoochee Sunrise.” When asked to describe it, Sellers refers to this distinctive sound as a sort of “county fried soul.” The result is a finely blended musical cocktail of several genres, with a twist of country that only those this side of the Mason-Dixon can appreciate. Every true southerner can attest that almost all things are just a little better country fried, and now Cory Sellers’ one of a kind sound certainly must be an item included on that list.
