just wanted to say that I hope you’re doing okay. Your music continues to make me feel understood and less alone. Saw your insta post and wanted to offer encouragement. ❤️

Hey thanks pal. That was quite the melodramatic day, but a few weeks away from the interwebs and some intentional work with the shadow and depression has lightened up my mood a lot. Amazing that the tunes can help others to feel understood and less alone, yet so many days that is how I feel. The great human predicament I suppose. Thanks for dropping by, sure means a lot

Q

So I'm an amateur guitarist and have been playing for a couple of years, generally songs like your's and Ben Howard's, singer songwriter type stuff. I have been looking online for a while for a tab for the The Rhine, and haven't found one, I was wondering if there was a reason or one just hadn't been made yet. One of my favorite songs ever!
If you have any tablature for it, or sheet music as well?

Thanks Gavin! I don't have any tabs or sheet music unfortunately, maybe I have sheet music for the string parts but not sure.

If it helps, You'll want to tune down to Drop D and pretty play kind of a D Power chord at the 5th fret of the A string, but lift your finger to let the G string ring through. Same with the Bmin I use (leave the g open)

Hope that helps!

Well hello there :)
I'm listening to 'The Hollow in Retrospect' right now and it brought me to tears once again (don't worry i'm okay, kinda haha) and i was wondering what the song means to you? Like some lines just really get to me, because i can relate to them on a personal level..
Especially the Chorus &
'Dance to remind yourself that you're dying' & 'You're the darkness where I lost the light'

So yeah, what's your story behind these lyrics? :) I'm all ears.
Thank you for the amazing music you make by the way, i really adore you and your work.
Hope you'll come to Switzerland some dayyy!!!

All the love xx Lisa

Hey Lisa,

It's a love song, originally to a girl suffering from depression, then in retrospect a bit to myself and my depression. She was a dancer, and we both really struggled with that so the song sort of evolved over the years. Would love to make it to Switzerland some day!

It's ok to not be ok. :)

Thanks for asking! Hope that answer helps a bit, It's an old song so the meaning has really evolved. What does it mean to you?

Q

I didn't know this site existed, man I'm a long time fan :) postcard from Rome is like top three along with The Rhine and Mama's Tears. I'm kinda jealous of your words and skill to make music, but I'm glad you do because when I don't have words I listen to you and another artist (that I want you to work with haha, John Vincent III) anyways when are you coming to Boston or near Boston area, i will be there! Thanks for everything! :))

Hey thanks Emily!
There are many days when I come up empty, and songs I go to that put words and feeling to what I can't understand. Always thankful that my songs can provide that space for others.
Definitely hope to make it back to the NE sometime soon!
Cheers,

Corey

Q

Hi Corey, your 'She Is Blue Sky, I'm the Gray' album cover was attractive and I started listening your songs 5 days ago and I love them all!! Your music is so healing to me and my fav is 'Berlin' of course. Do you have plans for you come to Melbourne ??

Thanks so much for listening! That EP is super special to me. Available on vinyl by the way! :)

No current plans, hope to some day. Spread the tunes, maybe I'll be able to get a gig!

Cheers,
