"On the 'Tube: Jordan Corey"

We kick off a new Cover Me series today with Jordan Corey. A U.C. Santa Barbara sociology major, Corey posts cover videos to YouTube just like thousands of other wannabe viral stars. Only one difference: she’s really good. A big-voiced belter, Corey straddles the line between old-school soul and American Idol. Some serious pipes for a skinny white girl.

Accompanied by an old theater buddy on guitar, Corey’s releasing a series of stripped-down home recordings. Her wails and whispers take center stage as she belts tunes from the worlds of pop (Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars), classic rock (Fleetwood Mac, the Beatles), and new soul (Adele, Amy Winehouse). We’ve got three of the best below, including the premiere of her cover of La Roux’s “Bulletproof.” She describes her version as “a little more rustic, a little more raw.” Often on YouTube that translates into “off-key karaoke filmed with a cell phone.” Corey’s a refreshing exception. -

"EXCLUSIVE Music Video: Jordan Corey - Truth"

Editors Pick: #2 on top ten (September 28th, 2010)

19-year-old Jordan Corey is preparing to release her debut EP entitled "Truth". Her incredible talent can be traced back to when she was 14-years old when she wrote her first song "Spinnin' Around". Now at 19-years old, Jordan is ready to show the world her musical talents with the debut release of "Truth", the single. So far she's already grabbed the attention of Leonard Brooks (SVP Urban A&R, Capitol Records) "We rarely work with independent artists, but we fell in love with Jordan’s unique voice and style". -

"Soul Searching: Jordan Corey"

When searching for the best in soul, we ran into the beautiful and talented Jordan Corey whose powerful voice will quickly hook you to her music. Her songs are original, but still carry a vibe that makes you think, “I could definitely hear these songs on the radio.” We admit we were a bit skeptical after listening to the track “Truth” for the first time. Corey’s voice has a tone quality similar to a lot of pop artists—sure, they sound great in the studio, but they really can’t hold their own live. So, we were happy to experience Jordan in one of her YouTube videos singing an acoustic version of the same song. It became clear that we’re dealing with an artist who is legitimately talented.

Not only is Jordan a great singer and songwriter, but she’s also building an excellent resume. Having sung in multiple music groups, she’s had the opportunity to perform along side some huge acts including, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Chromeo and Drake.

Choosen as a NEW "Artist to Watch" by iHeartRadio
In the small, dusty studio at Sonora Recorders in Los Angeles, vintage gear like Mellotron keyboards, Baldwin Fun Machines, Wurlizer organs and Space Echos fill the room. They wait patiently like sonic elder statesmen as saxophonist Lon Price (Patti LeBelle/Rolling Stones/Leonard Cohen/Elton John) clears his throat, and asks for another Coke Zero before blasting away on his first take on the new Jordan Corey track "Heart of Stone." The track oozes 60's and 70's Soul. The music is real. The vibe is authentic. The sound is analog – no digital studio tricks need apply.

"Jordan Corey's EP, Do Me Wrong has the character and essence of what classic records are made of..."

—Grammy Award-winning producer, Warren Riker (Aretha Franklin/Santana/Lauren Hill)

Gary Glitter style, big beat drums resonate on Corey's first single "Tonight." While gritty horns and lush string arrangements give tracks like "Do Me Wrong" and "Heart of Stone" an unexpected, sophisticated twist. The Agape Choir singers soulfully interwoven throughout the entire album allow Corey's new sound and style to emerge with the white-hot energy and funky cool of an early Spector record. This is music that'll make your Dad sit up and take notice of what's pumping from your laptop speakers. Beyond the platform shoes and sultry façade, Jordan Corey's groove-drenched music has an infectious quality that's simultaneously classic and fresh.

In 2009, Corey's first step into the recording studio was with hitmakers Stereotypes and Grammy Award-winning mix artist Jaycen Jackson. Working with such illustrious industry names was quite a coup for an unsigned artist. The resulting R&B-tinged six-song EP captured Corey's enigmatic vocals and became the lightening rod for a social media whirlwind. Despite the deluge of positive response from social media and subsequent music industry attention – Jordan felt strongly that the polished R&B sound and slick production of her first recordings, weren't the proper representation of her as an artist. "I wanted to start again with something more organic, real and personal," admits Corey. While this decision might seem antithetical, the outspoken Corey (who also dabbles in mixed martial arts fighting) is never one to shy away from a challenge.

In 2011 Jordan Corey teamed up with producer Jason Hollis to conceptualize and bring to life her vision of a new sound that captured a Stax Records vibe with an Indie twist. Fueled by an immediate creative synergy, the two began working on what would become Do Me Wrong. Joining forces with guitarist Dan Dixon (Dropsonic), Corey co-wrote all five of the EP's original tracks -- honing her songwriting chops on tracks like "Take It Back" – a brassy, no bullshit take on a tumultuous love affair. The creative team of Corey/Hollis/Dixon then enlisted friend and Grammy Award-winning mixer Matt Hyde to add the final touches to the EP.

"I wanted this album to be based on authenticity and wanted it to reflect what I was feeling and going through at that very moment in time," says Corey. "I'm not a studio creation. For me, real music with real instruments and real singing is what gets into your heart and soul. There's just something about raw vocals, live drums, horns and guitars that can never be recreated with studio tricks, effects or samples. But I also wanted there to be some cool production to this record that makes it sound fresh -- but it was important that what we created in the studio was a backdrop for the music, rather than the music being a backdrop for the production"
