CORY PHILLIPS NEWS & UPDATES
4/9/2017 With the heaviest of hearts the whole CP camp is recoiling from the tragic loss of their musical soulsister, Lisa Donnelly. Many of you saw Lisa perform alongside Cory from 2003 to 2009 when they both supported each other's songwriting and voices in bands like FM and California (with Joe Sax, Cody Felder, and Pat Bradley), and each of Lisa's and Cory's solo projects around Los Angeles. She was a successful vocal powerhouse and beautiful talent shooting toward the stars, an inspiring friend, love, and ally... This is a low and heartbreaking time for the whole crew and for the thousands of hearts Lisa touched in 37 short years. We encourage you to embrace her soulful musical legacy with us at her artist website and her Facebook page.
5/6/2016 Back in the studio next week to continue sessions for the SEXTHIRSTYLOVEHUNGER album. We've been performing so much in and around Los Angeles that it will be good to switch gears and try to finish this record. Many new shows have been posted (see TOURDATES) in the Southern California area, and many others are being booked now. This will be a crazy musical summer! In August the soul train is moving to New York City, and I'll be aiming to share groovefunkdisco & blue-eyed soul with a whole new audience. We're booking solo performances there beginning in August. Starting to project-plan for the new album-cover/package-design too! Don't forget to check out the new songs we've put up here at sexthirstylovehunger.com (hear AUDIO)!
