Born in Illinois, Corey Stevens picked up the guitar at an early age with a little help from his grandfather. “He pawned some of his fishing gear for an old acoustic and I was on my way,” Stevens says. “To me, it always felt natural playing guitar.”

His early musical heroes were rock ‘n’ roll pioneers The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and The Allman Brothers.

Through them he discovered a whole new style of music — the blues. Stevens draws upon this rich blues and rock guitar influence in his playing.

The guitar sounds of T. Bone Walker, Freddie King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Otis Rush, Hubert Sumlin, Albert King and Buddy Guy as well as Clapton and The Allman Brothers can all be found in his blazing guitar playing.

About Blues-based rock singer Corey Stevens

Stevens tours with his band and as a solo acoustic performer. His music is played on XM Radio and some FM stations, and is available on iTunes, CD Baby, and in selected stores.

Born in the small town of Centralia, Illinois, Corey Stevens never just says he is from Illinois. After hearing, “Oh, from Chicago?” a few too many times, he has learned the succinct way to put it: “I’m from Southern Illinois – an hour east of St. Louis.” St. Louis is where he saw his first baseball game and where he saw the Rolling Stones twice on the same day. He says, “St. Louis is where I went to and saw the huge crowds and came home with big dreams.” But, Centralia was where he grew up, diligently honing his guitar playing and soaking up middle America.
