Cory Mon

Unlike some balladeers, Mon writes almost entirely from experience. “The more and more I write songs, the more and more honest it becomes,” Mon says. “I'm in a really good place these days. We need for happiness, hope and goodness in the world. This coming album is a bit giddy, for me at least.” The album’s raw energy is seasoned with experience, yet is youthfully experimental. This duality shows in his appearance, too. Wearing a tweed blazer and bushy beard, he could pose as a community-college sociology professor, but his eyes have the intensity of a brash, youthful rocker, like he was when he first started. Cory Mon has shared the stage with the likes of JJ Grey & Mofro, Patterson Hood, Todd Snider, Tim Reynolds, Galactic, Derek Trucks, Mavis Staples, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Matt Nathanson, Sean Hayes, etc.
