Corey Hales Wants The Sun To “Cool It Down” Because Of His Vocals



Wasting no time following his MajorStage presented co-headlining concert with Marcus Rodriguez at DROM in NYC last month and an impressive 300 Ent. Unplugged series appearance, Massachusett made musician Corey Hales delivers the official music video to his Carter Sanders-produced track “Cool It Down.” Capturing the bearded Bostonian performing the record poolside with a band while accompanied by an assortment of beautiful women, the visual comes after the release of singles “Falling Down,” “Major Leagues,” and “Cherry Tree.” 

In a press statement about what inspired the song, Corey states:

“I bought a mustang and was living on my own for the first time in Charleston, but on a cruise home from my Monday gig I was left thinking about this girl I had just met at the show. I think we all have those moments in our head where we map out everything we wish we said to someone and that’s exactly when the record was born. It’s also the first song I had written as a newly single person after a 5 year relationship, so it’s my personal favorite because all of my memories associated with the song are still super fun and positive.” 

Mentored by Mark Baxterr, renowned vocal coach to Aerosmith‘s lead vocalist Steven Tyler, the Beantown native’s Soulful-Pop brand of music has allowed him to travel to Europe, San Francisco, Atlanta, NOLA, Nashville, and NY as well as perform live solo sets at clubs in Harlem, the famed BlueBird Cafe in Nashville, and Kylemore’s Neo-Gothic Church of Ireland. Sighting his mother as his major source of inspiration in life as a whole, musically Stevie Wonder and Ed Sheeran influence his adult contemporary sonics. With only 4 commercial releases to his name, Hales has managed to garner 1M+ streams collectively between the songs and their matching visuals.
