Its been a year?

I can hardly believe a year has passed us by since I went to work at Imaginary Road Studios to record "Fire in the Rainstorm". Your generosity made that happen.  I know I would have had to wait to record.. and I am grateful every day that you were there.. and still are!  We are NOT done by a long shot.  Marketing and promotion is coming up in June.  The global release of the album is May 15th.  There are some things than need to be done before June 1. Here are some pictures from when I was taking a break from a grueling morning.  They are of me attempting to chop wood.  The photos were taken by Tom Eaton

Kori Carothers

Kori Linae Carothers, 27758 Santa Margarita Parkway #407 , Mission Viejo, CA 92691

A musician's path to her/his muse is sometimes an easy one. Other times, it is filled with potential pitfalls or unexpected obstacles. Kori Linae Carothers faced just that when, during a kindergarten health screening at the age of 5, it was discovered she was deaf in her left ear. Her young peers found out and the teasing began. In addition, throughout elementary and high school, Kori was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she kept learning and practicing, never surrendering her dream. Despite these discouragements, Carothers was passionate about her calling and now, years later, she is an acclaimed pianist and keyboard player with four albums to her credit. Clearly, she is an example of a person following her muse with courage, humor, and determination. - Bill Binkelman
