Chris Corey – Storms We Face

Christopher Steven Draper was raised in a small city in Northern Ontario, Canada. Classic acts like Oasis, Billy Idol, The Police, The Smiths, Bruce Springsteen and The Rolling Stones are amongst his main influences. But he also names more contemporary artists, like Sam Fender, Maggie Rogers, and even Carly Rae Jepsen. Draper started making music himself in the summer of 2018, using the moniker Chris Corey. Not only does he sing and write lyrics, he also plays the guitar and the drums. His first single Wildfire came out in 2019 and got a bit of airplay on some Canadian and US college radio stations.

Currently recording his debut album in Vancouver, he just released his sophomore single Storms We Face. This self-written track is about providing shelter for someone when they’ve reached a rough patch and need a helping hand. To me, it sounds like itโ€™s got the potential to become his break-through. The song opens like a slightly slower version of Frank Blackโ€™s Hang On To Your Ego. That comparison only holds for a few seconds though. Fans of the aforementioned Sam Fender are sure to love this song.

Coreyโ€™s debut album will drop in early 2022. He calls the record โ€˜a mixed bag of everythingโ€™. โ€œI really tried to pull from a variety of influences on the newer tunes, I didnโ€™t want to hold back thinking something wasnโ€™tย possible.โ€ย Drawing influences from a variety of genres including rock, pop, blues, country, folk and new wave, his new album promises to be a treat for listeners with wide musical palettes.
