This is the NEW WAVE of New Wave as ‘Chris Corey’ unleashes the mighty ‘Wildfire’

Raised in a small city in Northern Ontario, Chris Corey now splits his time between Ontario and Western Canada where he’s currently working on completing an album of new material.

After taking a break from music for a few years to focus on other projects, Chris is happy to be writing and recording new music again.


“This album is really a mixed bag of everything.” He said when asked about the direction of his newer material. “I really tried to pull from a variety of influences on the newer tunes, I didn’t want to hold back thinking something wasn’t possible.”
And it shows.

Blending the best elements from pop, rock, folk, Britpop, blues, top 40, country and 80’s new wave, Chris doesn’t hold back in showing his inspiration and influence.

Equally comfortable behind a drum set or playing the guitar, Chris also lent his hand to most of the tunes on the album. “It’s a strange thing really, to write a song from scratch sitting in your bedroom one day to seeing it come to life in a studio.”

Chris’ newest single and music video for the song “Wildfire” is a lush blend of 80’s-inspired synth hooks mixed with punchy guitars and sweeping melodies. With 3 new songs out now and more on the way later in the year, Chris Corey plans on releasing his new album in early 2020.
