has delved into his true alternative folk nature with the release of Made of Stone
. Corby really gives a true representation of his vocal capabilities with the use of his vocal range and overall ability; from the soulful, grovelly vocals to his beautiful falsetto.
He was first discovered as the runner up on reality television show Australian Idol
. Thankfully, Corby did not tie himself to the pop style so popular of musicians discovered on AI
and, instead, moved into his genuine folk flair. After a short period of time with unsuccessful folk releases down-under, Corby moved to the edges of the European continent. He was then signed by Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons) to Lovett's 'Communion' collective. Now, with his new EP, Corby has established a more alternative/assertive tone within the folk spectrum. Emotional, heartfelt, surprising voice -- you get the picture, but it's better heard than spoken.
