Corinna Rose ------> Corey Gulkin

Corinna Rose and I have had a sweet run, but I've been pushing my music forward and it's time to do the same with my name.

It was always a little strange to have a semi-pseudonym - Corinna Rose being my first and middle names that no one had really called me since birth. It gave me the space and courage to own the stage, to belt it out, and to do it anyway, even when I didn't know how. Yet, the name has also been splitting me in two - the stage/ business version of myself, vs. my 'real life' self. While this used to be a comfort, I've been feeling that the name puts distance between myself and my music, both present and future.

The new album is inching ever closer to being finished; it's more intricate, weird and personal than anything I have made to date, and it is undeniably close to me. It is something I can only truly connect to as Corey Gulkin.

I know it will take a moment to settle in to it, but it will be worth it.

Stay tuned, new video and tour dates coming soon. <3
