SongVault Artist Profile
New York, United States
Alternative / Singer/Songwriter
Corey TuT has been writing, recording and playing his unique brand of Rock and Roll in and around New York City for well over a decade. Along the way he has worked with artists as diverse as Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz from the Beastie Boys, legendary New York producers Super Buddha (Blondie, Rufus Wainwright, Scissor Sisters) and techno/house music sensations Ultra Naté and The Ones. His songs have been used in several independent films and in network programs on The CW, NBC Sports and The NFL. TuT's voice can also be heard in commercials for Toyota, Diet Pepsi, Ford and many others. Citing influences ranging from Pink Floyd to Peaches and The Rolling Stones to Radiohead, Corey TuT's sound is as classic as it is modern with a love for timeless song craftsmanship, mountains of big guitars and soaring vocals.
On his latest self-produced album Chasing Down The Bedlam, TuT found himself pushing the boundaries of his sound by adding layers of synths and atmospheric effects to his punchy pop/rock songs. "Making this record was a hugely rewarding learning process for me. Producing and recording it myself in my home studio really allowed me the time to experiment sonically; To let the songs grow more organically and come together at their own pace. It was really exciting to be able to live with them and watch them evolve over the course of the recording and mixing process." The album runs the gamut from the straight-ahead power pop of "Matter of Time" and "Shine A Light", to the bluesy slow burn of “Tired of You” and the hypnotic and sprawlingly epic 9 1/2 minute title track. "I think that sonically, this record takes the listener on the same turning, twisting and ultimately rewarding journey I went through while creating it, and I am super excited for people to hear it."
