This Is What Happens When You’re True To Yourself

I was asked the other day if I had missed doing cover gigs since making my decision to stop doing them by the end of 2015, and my short answer was a big “NO!”

No, I don’t miss doing cover gigs at all. In fact by the end of 2015 I wasn’t missing doing any gigs because by then I was a bit tired, jaded, burnt out and needing a little time out from everything.

Let me tell you though, it’s amazing what happens when you start being true to yourself. Since I’ve stopped playing covers I performed my first originals only show (with the wonderful Darren Zaza) at the Hotel Metro on January 27th.

As first gigs go it went off very well as you can see from the below video…

I’ve also managed to secure another three gigs at the newly established Mischief & Mayhem Wine Lounge Art Space for the 2016 Adelaide Fringe plus, I’m doing a 1 hour SCALA spot at the German Club all because word had got around my network that I’m now only concentrating on writing, recording and performing my own music.

All of this has happened and I haven’t even started seriously re-engaging with the Adelaide music scene as yet which further reinforces the feeling that my decision to stop playing covers was definitely the right one to make.

Below are my upcoming gigs for February and March 2016 so far…

Corey 🙂
