Hey Everyone!

My name is Kory Wheeler and I am singer songwriter currently residing in Nashville, TN. I had the amazing opportunity earlier this year to be on the TV show American Idol. Not only was this an amazing experience, but it revitalized my love for music and my dream of it being the thing I do all of the time. I have been working on some new songs for a good bit of time now and this felt like the perfect opportunity to release them out into the wild. 

The support I have been shown throughout all of the years I have been a musician, and especially the support I was shown during and after American Idol has been nothing short of humbling. I am beyond excited to share these new songs with you. So, join me on this journey and lets see where it goes! 

I will be posting a lot of content during the life of this campaign as I want to be transparent with where I am in the writing and recording process. I am already in talks with some amazing people here in Nashville to be involved with the album and I can’t wait to share more as those decisions are made. 

Thanks for taking the time to check out this project and I look forward to seeing where this thing takes us!

Risks and challenges

Depending on how much money is raised will determine how many songs I record. The plan is to record at least 3, hopefully 5. Other issues will be coordinating a release event with everyone's busy schedules, but I am confident everything will come together as planned!
