Corey Adams started his musical career at school at the age of 11. It didn’t take long before his instructors recognized his talent and advanced his grade level. It was at age 17 that he discovered his most treasured gift – his voice. He made his discovery when he was asked to sing lead in the Mass Choir at church. He joined his Dad, Bucky, at age 16 singing and playing the alto saxophone.

One of Corey’s most outstanding and memorable performances was during a live taping of CBC Radio’s program, “Identifi es”. It was at that moment that Corey discovered his dynamic inner ability to dig down and produce a unique, rich deep and the smooth tone that could fi ll the largest hall. Corey and his father delivered a stunning performance, which was among the contributions that led to the CBC to win the Gabriel Award for Broadcasting Excellence. He has performed widely in jazz clubs, art galleries, private parties, weddings, and concerts. He sings the songs of the all time greats – Arthur Prysock, Billy Eckstine, Joe Williams, Nat King Cole, and Lou Rawls.

Among his other important credits is his duo recording with Canada’s renowned jazz pianist, Oliver Jones.

Corey Adams continues to delight audiences with his smooth, deep, rich voice and his engaging and exhilarating performances.
