Corey El is an American singer, song-writer and music producer. As a self-professed introvert, his enigmatic presence in the world of music is one of wonder and elation for those who have discovered or heard one of the industry's best kept secrets. With a soulful wisdom far beyond his years and a finger on the pulse of his generation, Corey El lends a fresh perspective to a decades worth of musical styles inspired by the pioneering sounds of soul, funk and hip hop.
Born and raised in Virginia, the son of dexterous professional and multi-instrumentalist Carl Lester-El, young Corey inherently understood the power of music to change moods and points of view while connecting people’s hearts and minds on a global scale. With a natural ear for a multi-genre of melodies and grooves, he was able to express himself instantly through singing.
His father taught him how to track on a Casio keyboard, and as soon as he learned to write, he was making his own fully produced songs. As a teenager, Corey was already producing, writing and arranging for local artists and he eventually felt the pull to focus on creating his own original work as the featured voice in the studio.
With immense artistry he crafts songs with soulful melodies, hypnotic beats and lyrics on self-acceptance, love and living life on your own terms. As an entertainer and live performer, Corey moves to his own beat with his seasoned band The Fam.
Corey El constantly creates to discover new ways to grow and express himself – all while continuing to experiment with sound, emotion and heartfelt storytelling.
