Wow I just discovered your music and I'm blown away. I'm always drawn to thoughtful lyricism. It usually helps me with my poem or short story ideas. Do you like poetry or creative writing? Do you have any favorite poems/poets? Hope to see you live in Georgia one day!

Where in Georgia!?

I LOVE poetry and creative writing. I'm an avid reader of both, though I struggle to organize my own creativity into things like that. Rereading Maggie Nelson's Bluets right now, and for fiction I just finished Let the great world spin for the second time. Those are both two of my all time favorites if you haven't read them

Where in Georgia? I play there all the time!

Does reality begin at perception or somewhere beyond?

Hey, Corey. Do you find that this hurt from an organized religion, that you refer to, has inspired you to write songs the way that you do? Also, where are you on your faith journey now?


Corey Kilgannon responded on 12/01/2017
A

Absolutely. I've written/spent a long time thinking about organized religion. The last few years have been beautifully, painfully deconstructive. I'm in a really good place, connecting deeply with myself, and seeing God in the small beauties in the world. Not really diving into a particular religious set of views yet, but getting close to where I will want to. Thanks for asking!

COREY! I've hit the jackpot!! I didn't know radiant phaedrus existed. So happy, incredible music. Why the pseudonym? Ps again thank you so much for sharing your music. So thankful

So glad you found it! There's a few key reasons for the moniker, but I suppose mainly I just wanted another outlet, and one in which I could be lyrically/musically a bit weirder. The name comes from a book called Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance, and it is referencing Plato's character the phaedrus. Has to do with duality/insanity in the mind etc. TONS of more RP stuff coming in the future. Stay tuned!

Not a question, I was introduced to your music while I was working for a church and having a pretty rough time with it. Your music has helped a lot in healing from it. Thank you.

Thats my back ground too pal (except as a minor leading worship). Its slow and painful to rebuild when an organized religion hurts you. Hope you find some peace and forgiveness in it

No question, just wanted to say thank you for your music and for sharing your talents with your listeners. Honestly, your lyrics have impacted my life in a pretty massive way specially now as college is throwing all types of new experiences and lessons at me. I usually listen to rap and old rock, and a large mixture of hispanic music, but you're on a whole different genre. You're incredible, and I hope you can come to Dallas,Texas soon!

Thanks so much Roberto,

Always love getting to come through Dallas. Thankful that you allowed my tunes into your life, though I admit I'm sure they are less cool than rap, rock and hispanic music. :) I've actually been on a huge kick of hispanic influenced music lately, if you have any recommendations please let me know!

Cheers see you next time,

Corey
