About Corey Glover:
Corey Glover is the voice of Living Colour. As a founding member of Living Colour, Corey helped prove that not only could black guys kick out the jams, but that they could be embraced by a vast expanse of fans. Living Colour earned numerous industry awards including back-to-back Grammys for Best Hard Rock Performance of 1989 (“Cult of Personality”) and 1990 (Time’s Up) and emerged as one of the most influential rock acts of all time, regularly selling out arenas and selling millions of albums.
After their four Billboard charted albums, Living Colour disbanded in 1995. Almost immediately Corey began laying the foundation for his debut solo album, Hymns. 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of this release.
With a stint as a VJ for VH-1, a TV series, Signs of Life, and a movie, Reunion, released in 2002, Corey miraculously still found the time to form a new band, Vice (with guitarist Michael Ciro), which enabled him to satisfy his appetite to write in other genres and managed to impact a whole new set of followers.
Then, with the revival of Living Colour once again, Corey found himself once again singing to sold-out audiences around the world mesmerizing them with his captivating vocal performances.
Living Colour released new bodies of works — Collideoscope in 2003, The Chair in The Doorway in 2009, and Shade in 2017.
Corey has been quite busy lately, touring with Living Colour in support of Shade, performing on various dates of the sold out “Celebrating David Bowie” tribute tour, fronting his own band, and performing solo acoustic shows accompanied by Michael Ciro on guitar.
