“Corry Loveday is a songwriter with a voice that pulls at your gut, lyrics that capture your ear, and songs with an observant, honest charm you are unlikely to forget.” Corry grew up in a small town outside of Troy, New York. As a kid he would sit on his grandmother’s stairway to listen to her play works of Bach and Beethoven on her ever so slightly out of tune upright piano. At seven years old Corry stacked pillows on his neighbor’s piano bench to reach the keys for his weekly lessons. By seventeen he was writing songs, drawing influence from Sting and
John Mayer, Robert Frost and Norah Jones.
He began performing at Caffe Lena’s open mic in Saratoga Springs New York, and now has played at venues all along the east coast such as Madam’s Organ in D.C. and Silvana’s and Pianos of NYC. Corry graduated from SUNY Purchase’s Music Conservatory with his BFA in Music Composition and Songwriting.
His songs are about the quirky moments when we fall in
love, the imaginary stories of strangers on a train, or calls for action with a political voice. He fuses elements of pop, contemporary jazz, and Soul/R&B to create a deep, diverse repertoire.
“Corry’s rich, soulful music would be great for a long road
(Ted Piltzecker, jazz composer)
