ABC Music Welcomes Corey Colum

 

ABC Music are excited to formally announce the signing of Corey Colum to ABC Music.


Like so many great Australian songwriters, Corey Colum is as real as it gets. He had a traditional family upbringing in Bunbury, Western Australian, living with mum, dad and his brother & sister and was brought up on core values and hard work.


As well as being a recording artist and songwriter, Colum is a plumber by trade. Over the years he has also dabbled in hard labor activities like carpentry, concreting, fencing, welding and often spends time in “Shutdown”, where he uses all these skills to help maintain and repair big work spaces and production plants.


Now based in the mining town of Karratha Western Australia, with a young family of his own, Corey Colum is ready to fulfill his musical dreams.


Corey Colum first picked up a guitar at the age of ten. He wrote his first song at 15 and honed his craft playing local gigs in Bunbury before winning a local Telstra Road to Tamworth heat and heading to the Tamworth Country Music festival.


Corey Colum caught the eye of ABC Music when performing at the Telstra Road To Tamworth Grand Final in early 2009. On that night, the Grand Final audience voted him the event’s “People’s Choice Award” winner.


On the same night, the judging panel awarded Colum the Telstra Road To Tamworth Songwriters Award. This gave him the opportunity to perform at the CMA Music Festival and write with Universal Music Publishing’s gun songwriters in Nashville and shortly after the event, Colum was offered a recording contract with ABC Music and he gone on to record his first album with the label.


Corey Colum got together with premier Australian songwriters including Colin Buchanan, Matt Scullion, James Gillard and the producer of his debut album, the multi award winning and acclaimed Australian producer, Garth Porter.


Corey Colum’s self-titled debut album will be released in January 2012 through ABC Music/Universal Music Australia.
