As a founding member of Living Colour, Corey helped prove that not only could black guys kick out the jams, but that they could be embraced by a vast expanse of fans. Living Colour earned numerous industry awards including back-to-back Grammys for Best Hard Rock Performance of 1989 ("Cult of Personality")
After their four Billboard charted albums, Living Colour disbanded in 1995. Almost immediately Corey began laying the foundation for his debut solo album, Hymns. 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of this release.

With a stint as a VJ for VH-1, a TV series, Signs of Life, and another movie, Reunion, released in 2002, Corey miraculously still found the time to form a new band, Vice (with guitarist Michael Ciro), which enabled him to satisfy his appetite to write in other genres and impact a whole new set of followers.
With the revival of Living Colour, Corey found himself again singing to sold-out audiences around the world mesmerizing them with his captivating vocal performances. Corey was seen as Judas Iscariot opposite Ted Neeley in the national tour of Jesus Christ Superstar. Although this marked Corey's national tour debut, he has also been seen in productions of Godspell and Fallen Angel.
Living Colour released new bodies of works -- Collideoscope in 2003, The Chair in The Doorway in 2009, and Shade in 2017.
Corey has been quite busy lately. You can catch Corey touring with Living Colour in support of Shade, performing on various dates of the "Celebrating David Bowie" tribute tour, fronting his own band, and performing solo acoustic shows accompanied by Michael Ciro on guitar.
