Love your music in its simplicity and realism. Also how you really open yourself up to your music and let the deepness of your soul out into the lyrics. I play a little guitar, but seeing as I have only started a few months ago I'm stuck with basics. I would very much like to learn to play in a style similar to yours some day. If you were to describe the genre of music you play, what would most closely fit?

Thank you so much! I learned to play guitar by just learning a ton of covers and stuff over the years....started with mayday parade and all time low and now I learn Beatles and oldies stuff. Fingerpicking just came slowly over the years, but the bottom line is you have to spend a looooong time playing :) I've been playing guitar for like 15 years, and I love it more and more and more. There's lots of stuff to learn keep it up! Genre I normally say "singersongwriter" but I fit in indie or folk or something too.

Hey Corey! Love your music and that seems to just ooze out of all your songs haha
Was wondering if you remember the chords to Without Consequence???

I think I use a capo somewhere but the chord shapes are

G C G
G C G
Amin Adim
Amin Adim
for the verses and the chorus is

C C#1/2dim
G G7
C C#1/2dim
G G7
Amin Adim

Its kind of weird shapes and I'm bad with naming chords so hopefully that helps :)

Hey! Today I heard your songs for the first time, and I really liked the depth and meaningfull characteristic that they have. It is difficult to find musics that actually lesves you thinking. I was just reading some of your responses and when you mentioned that you were hurt by the religious organization while you were a Christian. Recently, I tried entering the worship team on my church, but they started questioning me and pracrically rejected me. It was a very painful moment because I really like music and fell like it is ibe of the best ways someone can connect with God. I feel that in some way we were both hurt by the organization. What have you done to heal? After parting with Gid for some time, I realized that the separation was not worth it just because people from church hurt me, what do you think about that?

Hey! Glad you found the tunes. I was a worship leader for several years, and after a few intense traumas and things just didn't find much meaning at the church anymore. there was a lot of other personal hurts and thing. Now a days, I experience "God" through reading/walking/meditating/writing music and having conversations with people about it, but I can't really be a part of anything too organized. I think structure can be beautiful, but I've yet to find one I fit into. I think its total BS that you HAVE to be at a church to be living a spiritual life, so I would encourage you to just give it time and pursue God in whichever way makes sense to you. :) I'm sorry that happened, I spend a lot of time trying to forgive and work through the bitterness. We're all just people trying to figure it out ya know.

Cheers!

Q

hey I'm in need of a senior quote this year for the yearbook. Thought maybe I wanted to quote my favorite singer and a seriously cool individual on this planet. Anything on your mind that would fit haha? It could be serious or not. Thanks


Corey Kilgannon responded on 07/22/2018

Haha niiiice. I think mine was a little serious and I regretted it.

If I were to have a second go at it would probably say "Drink water" or "Slim Margins, Man"

Best of luck congrats on graduating. :)
