US Artist Corey Jon To Release UK Debut EP 'Crazy Loud'
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Brooklyn urban/pop newcomer Corey Jon is set to release his debut EP 'Crazy Loud' this spring, coinciding with his first ever UK live show at London's Queen of Hoxton on April 7th.

Performing since he was a child, Corey Jon's creative passions have seen him delve into every artistic foray, including a role in the Tony award-winning Broadway musical 'Fela!' It was here he got to work with the likes of Jay Z and Will & Jada Smith, which gave Corey the inspiration to start making his own music.

'Fela changed the trajectory of my life,' says Corey. 'Fela's music allowed me to have a new perspective of social political commentary. And performing for people like Madonna, Prince, Janet Jackson, Sting,President Obama and Oprah, I was able to meet and talk to everyone I admired in the entertainment industry. Being in the company of great artists helped confirm my own plan.'

'Crazy Loud', his debut EP is a confident mix of R&B and pop, encompassing the vocals of The Weekndwith an anthemic backing that recalls the likes ofLenny Kravitz. Flying straight into the opening title track, Corey flaunts powerfully sung lines over the high-tempo electro style beginnings of 'Crazy Loud,' one of his most personal songs on the EP, 'It's like ripping a page out of my journal, listening to that song is like therapy for me' says Corey.

With 'Got To Have You', echoes of Usher are shining through as the New York artist swoons over a modernised rework of 80's inspired keys. 'Crazy Glue' and 'Long Stroke' delve into more epic territory with a domineering backdrop of guitars, pianos and rolling drumwork, but it's the smooth R&B of 'Matters' where Corey really finds his stride and shows his most romantic, heartfelt side, floating an infectious hook of sultry vocals over hazed strings.
