For some artists creativity is in the blood; Corey Rae White has music running through his veins.
A proud member of the Ho-Chunk Nation, Corey Rae White grew up in Black River Falls, WI. Immersing himself from a young age in all things musical, White absorbed rock, blues, country, funk and a lot of seventies soft rock hits. As soon as he could he joined bands and played shows of all kinds; over the years he’s performed on stages across the country with blues bands, country bands, rock bands, and show bands, rocking the six string for all of them. Now he’s ready to take center stage and head out solo with new material of his own.
As White begins a journey all of his own, he does so with significant achievements backing him up. He’s a multiple award winner as a songwriter, scooping National Native-E Music awards as well as recently having been nominated for “Best Independent Recording by New Artist” by the Native American Music Awards 2020 for his original song ‘Dimmer’.
This is a singer-songwriter with caliber, experience and a wealth of ideas to share. As a former ‘Guitar Player of the Year’ nominee (Minnesota Music Association) he sure can play, too. Corey Rae White is fast building a reputation for his beautiful song writing and electric live shows; full of fun, warmth and a special connection with the audience, White can hold a crowd like few others. The full package; melody, complexity, experience and warmth, cut through with great humor and whit. Top up your glasses, Corey Rae White is taking the stage.
