Artist Interview: Corey Layzell

How do you handle music requests?

I often put a pin in them..

What do you do when equipment goes on strike?

Fold my hands and wallow in self pity haha!

What are your musical influences from childhood?

I listened to a lot of pop music, but it was all on cassette tapes in the good old nineties too, I was pretty limited as to what I could get a hold of.

Is it even possible to argue about musical tastes?

No! some people’s fav colour is blue, other’s red. Its the same with music, neither is better..

Which track would run when you moved into your boxing match?

Live Through Death – Enemy

What was the worst job you ever had?

I was a tyre fitter, absolutely hated it.

Describes your sound to someone who has never heard it before.

Piano and choir driven contemporary pop.

Do you have any good tour stories from clubs or festivals?

I once threw an apple pie from a festival stage into a large crowd..

What would you do if you weren’t a musician?

I’d probably die a horrific death

What is the most important musical equipment invention of all time – and why? The string. All the good instruments are made with strings.

What would you advise to become a professional?

Get an online fan base, no one signs people who don’t have one these days, also gigging isn’t as helpful as it used to be fifteen years ago.
