The music business is a tough industry. It is even harder when you try to navigate it alone. The smartest thing to do is make connections and find others that have similar goals and work together to achieve them. Finding someone with more experience that believes in your sound can provide that push over the hump from mediocrity to stardom. We recently came across Elese Corson who seems to be riding this path.
The singer-songwriter hails from Wake Forest, North Carolina. Elese Corson began singing at a young age but really hit her stride while performing musical theater. Here she was able to hide in the character but let her voice truly shine. As some shyness fades Elese found that she had a talent for writing songs as well. Her guitar playing father helped her learn the basics of playing and she was off. Music started to flow.
Elese Corson started getting out there and performing throughout the area, hitting all the local college towns that are always eager to hear new music. Around this time she was introduced to Craig Brandwynne of Center Sound Records. He quickly saw the maturity and talent in Elese Corson and began collaborating with her to further develop her sound. Things moved fast and now the EP Who I Am is ready to be released today August 16th on Center Sound Records.
The lead single “Gravity” is a great introduction to Elese Corson’s music. The melodic tones open the door but the true highlight is her powerful and wide ranged vocals. There is emotion poured into the lyrics that provide that relatable aspect for anyone listening. Once you are drawn in, there is no escape as Elese takes you on a full ride with her passion towards the song.
