The record starts off with a soul-searching declaration of self on “You Can’t Take Me” before sliding into the multifaceted “Carolina (Bishop notes that “Carolina is a place, but Carolina is also a girl. It’s my on-off relationship with God, and my on-off relationship with my dreams.”) “Crown of Thorns” is a hung-over and guilt-ridden postmortem on a tempestuous relationship, too raw and real to not be raw and real. It segues into the break up song “Whenever You Are, Babe” – though, is that some light on the horizon? It all comes together on closer “Honey I Ain’t” where verses laced with complex imagery are balanced with choruses that couldn’t be simpler. For me, this is the Nashville skyline” says Bishop. “The same one that Dylan named his 1969 record after. The same record that brought my parents together in 1979. And here I am in Nashville writing about that skyline.” At the end of the day, it all balances out and boils down to a love song; and after all, isn’t that why we’re all here to begin with?


“Demonstrating an easy mastery of country and folk-rock, Bishop ambles down many of the highways and byways of musical history…with a soothing voice and addictive country grooves.” -Jeff Koch - WORLD Magazine

“Cory Bishop EP is an introspective, personal revelation featuring striking sentiment and imagery.” -Elmore Magazine

“...the more I listen to the five songs on this release, the more I find hints of things I like. Little melodies here and there, lyrics that are clever and concise, and then, the ultimate compliment, a song that reminds me of Josh Ritter, a man who I think has some of the best songcraft of modern times.” - Danielle Sills, No Mistake in Mixtape
