About Kori Carothers:
Kori Linae Carothers is a composer and musician from Mission Viejo, California. Her influences are wide ranging and include bands like the Beatles and Led Zepplin to Beethoven, Mozart and Mannheim Steamroller. Her main instrument is piano and her music infuses electronic and acoustic sounds.
Kori and I spent quite a lot of time brainstorming pre-production ideas for this EP. The M.O. was to “explore,” so the door was WIDE open for creating a new sound for her songs. It was great teamwork to say the least. The goal was to also bring about a higher energy than she had ever had in her previous projects.
It was an inspired journey with awesome positive energy attached throughout (which I genuinely feel translated to the music). I do thank Kori for all her trust in letting me have the freedom to “paint” the initial picture for each song. We worked brilliantly together throughout this project and hooked up remotely via for a lot of the post mix / mastering tweaks.
“Tangled Up” initially had a version without the lead guitar. Kori called me one day and said something was bothering her on that song and that the “hook” line wasn’t defined enough. After talking it out, lead guitar seemed to be the best option.
I immediately strapped on my guitar, hooked Kori up via “Virtual Studio Networks” (VPN) and began doing overdubs in real time, with me in Nashville and Kori in her home studio in California. We rocked it!! You can read more about “Tangled Up” in the Before & After section on this site.
