Hi there, my name is Corey Stewart and I am a Singer/Songwriter, Performing Musician, Multi-Instrumentalist, Producer, Engineer and Blogger.
Ever since I wrote my first song at the age of 13, I’ve written hundreds of songs, performed in countless bands, played in far too many gigs to remember and experienced all of the highs and lows of being a performing songwriter/musician in Australia.
As you might have guessed, I have a passion for songwriting and encouraging other songwriters to be the best that they can be. I’ve been able to do this by being heavily involved with global songwriting organisation SCALA (Songwriters, Composers and Lyricists Association) plus, blogging about songwriting, home recording and the music business in general.
Through SCALA I have judged many songwriting contests and band competitions. I have also taught guitar and bass, been a musical director for touring bands and worked in numerous recording studios as a session musician for hire.
My latest love affair has been with my home recording studio (SongMachine) and how the songwriting and the recording processes overlap each other. I certainly look at the recording studio the same way as the great Brian Eno does… As a stand alone instrument to be manipulated in infinite ways.
My goal is to write more songs, play more gigs, meet more like minded creatives and generally take every opportunity that comes my way with both hands and ride the wave that this new music business is producing.
I have no idea where I will end up but it’s sure going to be fun finding out and this website will be my document to that. I hope you can come with me for the ride.
