Corey Congilio

Since picking up the guitar at age thirteen, Corey Congilio has been steadily forming a solid musical foundation built upon honesty, integrity and respect for his art form. Born and raised in Phillipsburg New Jersey, Corey was exposed to music from his father, mother and guitar playing uncles. This exposure to music of all types at an early age, helped to lay a foundation of passion, versatility and appreciation of what music is, where it comes from, and what it should be.

Realizing at an early age that music and the guitar would be his life’s focus, Corey moved to Pittsburgh, PA to attend the Art Institute Of Pittsburgh. There, Corey studied audio engineering but, didn’t get into music production officially until a few years after graduation. In the late 1990’s Pittsburgh had a vibrant music scene rich with blues, RnB, and original Rock. Corey shot up through the ranks by hanging out with the city’s best players who helped in honing his skills and overall musical maturity.

Lindsay Ell

Starting on piano at six, guitar at eight and singing in her church youth group at 10, Lindsay was discovered at 13 by BTO and The Guess Who's Randy Bachman. "Randy learned guitar from master jazz guitarist Lenny Breau, so I dove head-first into this world of blues, jazz and rock guitar – learning all these different solos, switching radio stations and trying to get an idea of where all those techniques come from. I was listening to Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Clapton, Derek Trucks and all those incredible guitar players who are now my heroes."

Over a decade that included an opening slot with blues icon Buddy Guy, Ell worked with other producers, often in Los Angeles, but nothing connected. Her first songwriting trip to Nashville was the catalyst that brought her early affinity for country full-circle. "When I got here, it was like I was home," she says. "And I finally fell back into my roots. As a guitar player, I’m so thankful for Randy, because he’s given me a vocabulary I never would have had had I just stayed in country. But coming to Nashville brought me back to who I am and who I'm meant to be."

"I told myself that I never wanted to release something to radio until I was ready, the music was really me and I had the right team around me. And I feel like I've satisfied all of that, finally. Going out on a radio tour and having the chance to share my music and show people how ready I am is the most exciting step I've made yet."
