A couple weeks ago, Portland singer-songwriter Corey Harper
released his new single, "No Good Alone," and the catchy tune is an instant classic. With Harper on guitar and vocals, Marshall Vore on drums, Patrick Taylor on bass, and James Wolf on guitar, the track draws inspiration from all over the place, most notably from artists like John Mayer
. On this new single, you can really hear the way Harper blends various genres and inspirations to create timeless pop jams, taking elements of folk, blues, 60s/70s rock and soul, and newer inspirations like John Mayer and Ben Howard
Growing up with a passion for playing guitar and his parents' taste for 60s and 70s music, Corey Harper is a singer-songwriter who tries to avoid the restraints of genre. Since moving to L.A. at the age of 20, Harper has started to make a name for himself in the Los Angeles music scene, has opened for Justin Bieber
shows, and has upcoming plans to open for select Niall Horan
Everything about "No Good Alone" is breezy and easy-going. From Harper's warm vocals to the funky guitars to the upbeat rhythms, the comparisons to John Mayer make a lot of sense. The mixture of catchy, upbeat, and chilled-out in "No Good Alone" is Corey Harper's take on John Mayer's classic sound.
