I've been a professional musician/singer-songwriter for over a decade. I've been honored to be chosen as one of San Diego's Top Singer-Songwriters. I know my clients aren't looking just for talent for their special event, they want professionalism. From the first phone call to booking and any communications leading up to the day-of, I make sure you receive nothing but the utmost promptness of reply, attention to detail, friendliness, and engaged customer service. I want my clients to know they can trust me with their event. The day-of, they get a musician who is ready-to-go, on time, no muss no fuss, has all their gear and independently gets set up and makes sure their presence is no additional hassle on the part of the client. I work with my clients to make sure the songs they want to hear are played and use my talents as a pianist and singer to make them sound as unique to the day and enjoyable to the crowd as possible. Great for wedding ceremonies, cocktail parties, dinner parties or special events- I try and tailor my set list to your tastes and mood of the event. Covers can range from background music and soft rock such as Marvin Gaye, Billy Joel, Disney, Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone, Fiona Apple, Jewel, Adele, John Legend, Norah Jones, and classic ballads. I make sure my covers still sound like my work as an artist and offer a soulful, sensual pop-edge. I've played gigs as small as 20 person dinner parties, and as big as wedding ceremonies and cocktail hours, bar entertainment, and the restaurant and main stage at House of Blues San Diego. I'm comfortable in both small or large crowds. Gear-wise, I have a small Fender Passport for amplification, an 88 key Yamaha professional keyboard that sounds just like a piano, and my own mics and stands. If you need sound for a larger room, you may provide house PA through your venue or I can supply a quote to bring equipment that suits the needs for the larger space. I want to make sure your event is awesome!
In addition to playing as a soloist for your more intimate music needs, I have a 7 piece band that brings a big soulful sound and is foot stomping cross genre fun for your entertainment! Check out my band page for Cori & The Music or check the website at www.coricompany.com/music.
