American Drummer, Producer, Songwriter and Engineer based in Orange County, CA.
Born December, 1974 (Harrisburg, PA)
Corey has been sitting behind a drum kit ever since he was only 2 years old. He developed a genuine passion for music throughout his life and in 2000, along with other Orlando natives, Corey helped form a band called Big Mother Thruster. The band took form & would gain momentum catching the attention of the WWE (World Wrestling Federation), DreamWorks Records & MTV resulting in four songs being aired on MTV’s Tough Enough reality show and their song “Dogtooth Violet” being featured on the DreamWorks Records release of the Tough Enough soundtrack. Pro-wrestler & Big Mother Thruster fan Maven, used the bands song “Tattoo” as his introduction to the ring throughout his career in the WWE.
The group inked a record deal with Maverick Records later in 2001, and with a few member changes, eventually changed its name to “Mercy Drive” before embarking on extensive touring alongside major acts Disturbed, Drowning Pool, Adema, American Hi-Fi, Seven Mary Three, Staind & Jane’s Addiction.
In 2004, Mercy Drive again teamed up with the WWE to write the theme music entitled “Burn In My Light” for WWE Champion, Randy Orton. The song was featured on the WWE soundtrack entitled "Wreckless Intent" released in 2006 on Columbia Records.
Corey was also brought on board as the drummer for the top-charting Christian Rock group and Wind-Up recording artist “Big Dismal”. The group was invited to write two new songs for the movie soundtrack “The Passion Of The Christ | Songs Inspired By”. The band’s first single off of the soundtrack “Rainy Day” quickly climbed the Christian Rock charts.
Currently, Corey is co-writing and co-producing new material with the groups Mercy Drive (Independent) THR3E 6IX FOUR, signed to Rhythm Heavy Records out of Nashville and also co-writing with other songwriters around the country to produce musical tracks for television and film.
Corey can not only provide help in performing, songwriting and arrangement, he can also help artists by curating other aspects of their projects, including producing, professional recording, editing, mixing and mastering at his personal studio “Gravity Well”.
