Corey Legge plays heartfelt alt-country and roots-rock, drawing influence from growing up amongst the fertile pastures surrounding Bega (NSW). Now based in Wollongong (NSW), Corey has released three albums in three years, resulting in high rotation on ABC Country and a slew of support slots for high profile artists including Fanny Lumsden, Amber Lawrence, Catherine Britt and Ash Grunwald. Corey’s debut single ‘Driving out of Eden’ was shared by the legendary James Taylor, adding to the already considerably large buzz around Corey’s music and live show. Corey’s storytelling and guitar prowess are not to be missed. Corey’s most popular single ‘I Don’t Know What I’ve Got Myself in For’ peaked at #2 on the Australian Country Radio Charts, while 7 film clips have been added to CMT on Foxtel. Corey’s recent singles ‘What Now?’ and ‘Love You & Leave You’ both cracked the CountryTown Hot 50 chart. In 2023, Corey has recorded with multi-award-winning producer Nash Chambers and toured throughout Europe, with shows in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.
