Before I get you to these boring videos, I have 2 things I want to share with you. First, the reason the videos are boring. Second, an opportunity for you to share your creative side with the world.
Boring Video Creation…
I read somewhere that getting your music on YouTube is a smart thing even if there is nothing more than an album cover to watch.
They say it is smart because YouTube is both the second largest search engine in the world (second only to its owner, Google) and YouTube is also one of the top places where people go to discover new music.
So rather than do nothing with the songs because I don’t have a ton of time to create epic videos, I figured I would get my ass in gear and just start creating and uploading some songs (even if they are boring to look at).
An Opportunity for You…
I figured I’d throw this out there for the hell of it. If you have an idea for a video for either of these songs, or any of my songs for that matter, feel free to download and use the song to tell your story. All I ask is that you show me when you are finished so that I can share your work with everyone.
Here’s some new music for you. I figured I would change it up a bit this month with something live. It was recorded at the L-Cove in Minnesota City a few years back by a friend of mine by the name of Jason Spartz (Mudstone Music).
It is just one of my former sidemen Doc Roc and I jamming away on a simple little song I made up called “Why Fight It?” Check it out.
Greetings from the small town of Mountian, WI where we are on a little family getaway. I am working a slow web connection so there is no video intro this month but here’s a little background for you.
The new music I have for you this month is actually not so new. It’s a song that I’ve had for a little over year now but never released outside of some immediate family and a few fans that where paying close attention for a 1-2 week stretch when I offered it up as a bonus for something I was offering at the time.
I figured it was a good time to release the song for good since it is bought and paid for. The recording budget is pretty slim these days and I’m trying to save up to put out some more full band songs for you guys (these recordings typically run from $400-$500.. not much when you are big time but until I find some more supporters, it will be spotty and I’ll have to be creative).
The song was created as a gift for my sister and brother-in-law.
The recording is also the first and only recording I’ve done with someone another than Tom and Annie at the RudeLab. A few years back I met a producer/musician Matt Olson from Ghost in My House Studio’s when opening for Nick Shattuck. He’s a good guy and I really liked what he did with Nick’s “Chorus and Verse” album so I thought it would be cool to work with him on something on.
Check it out and let me know what you think.

I had a hair up my butt today and decided to whip up a lyric video for my tune “Why Wait.
Press pay now to check it out.
Oh and be on the look out for lyric videos for some of my other tunes as well.
I read that YouTube is sort of like a radio station for a lot of people these days. Soooo, I’m thinking it would be smart of me to have as many videos on there as possible (by the way… feel free to make videos using any of my songs).
Folk Rock Singer Songwriter Corey Koehler (aka me) has released new music, kind of. Here is an update version of his song “Change The World.”
The previous version of “Change The World” was missing a few things; bass and a live drummer (due to budget constraints the earlier drums were computer generated… did you notice?) .
For the past few years it has bugged the hell out of me because I think the song needs to be “bigger.”
Sooo, rather than let it continue to eat at me I figured it was time I just went ahead and beefed it up with more acoustic guitar, some bass – compliments of Tom Moncrieff – and put a real player behind the drum set (Tom again). Check it out.
