about

In mid-2010, Corey's long time friend, drummer Terrance Ballard put Corey in touch with Cedric to work on a new album. It is a mix of upbeat songs such as "Dwelling" and "Not Tonight" as well as melodic pieces like the beautifully haunting "Afghan" and the slow title track "Sweet Release".

Corey's second opus was recorded in a very relaxing environment. After a short time with the music, Cedric laid down just the right bass lines for every song. Terrance was part of the project of course, back in full force on drums and percussion. To wrap up the album, violinist Sarah Husbands went into the studio to add what was completely unexpected and gave some of the songs a new perspective. The end result is an album with wonderful structure, vocal warmth, complex percussion, jazzy bass lines and sweet melodies.

This album comes in two moods; an energetic vibe with the full band playing the songs and a strip down version of B sides with Corey playing the songs acoustically alone for a very intimate feel.
