Amy Corey

“I’m very honest with everything I have been through, self-harm, addiction, eating disorders, depression, loss, adoption, you name it i've been through it.. And so I want to be there for everyone who has been through that and give them that hope, that it is possible to get through it, and that you can always turn a negative situation into something positive.. I have the privilege to be able to put my life and stories into my music and share it and that’s by far the biggest honor I can ever have in this industry and in life…”- Amy Corey
