Read about my good friend Korey in this month's edition of the magazine:

Korey is an exceptional talent deserving of such wide recognition--and look for more to come from this artist, he is about to begin work on his debut recording project to be produced by legendary singer/songwriter Jonathan Edwards.

Shows this week... 

On Thursday evening @ 9 PM it's the Nameless Trio at Stratford's Sitting Duck Tavern, and Saturday sees the Flagpole Radio Cafe return to the Edmond Town Hall theater in Newtown. Aztec Two Step join us a guest artist. Curtain is 7 PM. And on Sunday afternoon the Birdmen come to roost for a matinee show at Cafe 9 in New Haven. That's a 4 PM downbeat.

One Voice 

I also am honored to have played mandolin on the track "One Voice" produced by my friend Dean Falcone. It is from the soundtrack of the documentary "A Dog Named Gucci" and features the talents of a who's who of recording artists including Norah Jones, Aimee Mann, Neko Case, Susanna Hoffs, Brian May, among others. All proceeds are to be donated to several animal rights organizations.

I understand they planned to release a few different versions of the track, one featuring only the acoustic guitar and mandolin.

The official release on vinyl is Saturday, April 16 in celebration of Record Store Day. This link gets you to the Facebook Record Store Day page:

The track is also available for download at iTunes…/al…/one-voice-single/id1077025931
