Q

Hello, how are you? I caught your show Tuesday at Eddie's Attic in Decatur, GA. and enjoyed hearing you for the first time. Your lyrics are deep, some of them too profound to understand unless I read them a few times! Anyway, there's one song I really liked, something about (I paraphrase) "every hand that you embrace you eventually have to surrender"? That is so true - what song was that? I couldn't find it on your site. P.S. Thanks.

Hey Cathy,

Thanks so much for coming out to the show! We had a great time. I believe the song you are referring to is called Rosanna. It was on my latest ep "I'll Be Here When the Moon is Tired" and there is a rewritten version on my audiotree! Enjoy.

Q

I am obsessed with "The Hollow in Retrospect", it is so beautiful. I am really interested in learning to play it on piano. Is there a way to obtain sheet music for it?

Hi Serena! I'm not sure that there is sheet music for it, I just sort of improvised the parts and I don't play to sheet music so I'm not positive I'd even be able to write some up for you :O Sorry about that!

Q

Hey Corey, is there anywhere one can find chords to your songs? I really wanna be able to play along but I'm not a talented enough musician to discern the chords by ear.

Just wondering, if not, no worries!

Hey Devin,

I'm not really sure there's anywhere online that has them. Is there a song in particular? I'd try to help if I can!

Hi Corey, I just discovered you and your music this past week. Your voice/writing transcend the masses! I have an odd question, I guess, to ask of you? I'll preface this by telling you that I'm a graduate of a creative writing program-- from U.of WA. Late in life, I've learned how much I love lyric-writing. I've been studying the w/songwriters in Nashville.However, my lyrics aren't of that.ilk, & there's a hole in this process. Question: Are you possibly open to taking on a student,of sorts? I'm looking for someone to give me feedback on a lyric or two/ month. I could pay you what I pay now; which is $25/month. I know you're a busy guy-- so I realize you're limited in free time already. I know how to write-- but I'm struggling to make the shift from the world of poetry to lyrics. This is what I really need some help with. I'm very serious about this dream. Thank you for bringing amazing music to this world! I wish you all the best in your newest endeavors, as well! All the best, Lisa

Hey Lisa,

I'm 22 years old and dropped out of songwriting school, and certainly am not qualified to be paid to teach songwriting. However, I would be honored to be some kind of part in your lyric process! I've also been drawn to the other sphere of writing, so perhaps our arrangement could be that I'll gladly assist with lyrics and the craft of shaping songs any time I can, if you'll help me every once in a while with writing stories and poems? I'm not all that busy :) Taking a break from touring to try and just enjoy recording and have a stable routine. Its a good place to write from. Let's shift this over to email if you are interested, and if not I'll happily accept an undeserved 25 a month and help however you see most fit!

Cheers,

Corey

Q

Were you raised Catholic?
Do you practice now?
Who's your greatest musical inspiration?

NOT A QUESTION: I'm loving your discography on Spotify right now.

I wasn't raised Catholic I was actually a worship leader in a modern christian mega church but I am recovering from that now.
I don't practice Catholicism, but I do believe in God and good. Still piecing together my beliefs after they suffered a handful of substantial blows over the last few years. I am very drawn to theology/ritual/sacrament etc. so when I do come back around to joining the sunday morning organized religion routine, I plan to try out a catholic or episcopal church first. I think the calmness really helps my soul.
That is a TREMENDOUSLY Hard question but here is a short list of the people I'm inspired by right now: (Kanye West, Chance the rapper, Kendrick, Penny and Sparrow, Aliza Carter Band, Leonard Cohen (RIP), Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, Guy Clark etc).

I listen to a wide variety of genres. :)

What are you listening to rn?

Thanks for the questions, feel free to keep the discussion open. Would love to hear about what you make of faith and all that. Cheers!

Q

Where are you from? and why is your song Köln called Köln not cologne?


Corey Kilgannon responded on 11/15/2016
A

I hail from Jacksonville Florida and reside here currently. I wrote that song, and that EP, as a result of spending a month traveling in Germany. That song is named after the city Köln as it is an imaginative tale of falling in love in such a beautiful place.

Thanks for listening
