Corey Crowder: Gold And The Sand

Corey Crowder
Gold And The Sand
Tooth & Nail Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
You would be hard pressed to find another artist like Corey Crowder on the typically more punk label Tooth & Nail's roster because of his folk acoustic guitar that sometimes rides the thin line of being classified what we will just whisper as country. His southern roots have already made their way onto television as his music has been featured in One Tree Hill, The Real World and The Biggest Loser. His lyrical outlook is positive and songs on Gold And The Sand cover love, life hopes and simple reality making this record instantly identifiable and an enjoyable listen for all who partake. Oh yeah - he has a pretty good voice too!

Key Track: "Leaving You"

Band With Similar Fire: Joe Purdy
