Cory Simmons forged his life-changing relationship with guitar early on. After a transformative experience at Envision music festival in 2015, Cory understood that his connection with guitar and music as a whole would formulate the basis of his career. 


Cory’s music is melodic and soulful, inspired by his own life experiences including the hardships that he endured while growing up. Cory ties his lyrical insights together with a vast array of melodic sounds and meaningful rhythms that tug at the soul-strings of his audiences. 


Soon after Cory harnessed his musical abilities, he began to successfully record and perform. Some of his first recorded tracks include ‘Who Are You’ and ‘Mother Melody’. Cory has performed at venues and bars all over the midwest, playing at Shangri La, Harmony Park, Vibe High, Summer Stomp (Illinois), Share Fest (Colorado). Cory has also performed with esteemed artists such as Chase Makai, Lily Fangz, Georgia Rae, Danny Biggins, Antony Picardi, Johnny Jymeo and Paa Kow to name a few. 


In 2020, Cory started Astral Productions, a music event company that brings together artists, musicians, bands and other creatives (both local and out-of-state) to perform for the community. The inventiveness and hard work behind Astral Productions is credited to Cory’s own vision of high-quality and sincere music events. Astral Productions is hosting it’s premier event this June, where Little Feet will be the headline act. The concerts will also be featured on Astral Production’s official Youtube channel (*link*), where Cory hopes to create a global community of like-minded music lovers and creatives to share in his vision of art, connection and community.
