The Guitar Soul of Corey Harper

I'm not one of those folks who will make the argument that any one form of music is better than the other. Electronic music is just as legitimate as "real" instruments and I don't want to wander down that ouroboros of musical snobbery and in-fighting. But I will say that an honest to god melody and emotional pathos will always be more interesting than a lazily repeated hook and detached cynicism every day of the week. And on his stirring, soulful cover of Allen Stone's "The Bed I Made," Oregon native Corey Harper shows how much emotion you can deliver with just a guitar and your voice.

We have the exclusive premiere of a live performance of Harper's spin on that track, and it is beautiful. We've been Allen Stone fans here in the office for a long time, and it's great to see his work tackled in fresh and invigorating ways. Corey Harper is currently working on his debut EP, and as we wait to hear more of his own music, this video should hold us over just fine.
