" To hear Corey play the blues is to step back into history to the formative days of the genre, when field hollers mixed with African rhythms, jazz, folklore and even a touch of vaudeville to create something distinctly American. The Panama City musician has his eye on the future. Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, Norman Blake and Doc Watson would be tapping their feet. "

"It’s always great to hear Corey whether he’s playing solo or with a band. His original blues tunes pay tribute to the great pioneers of the blues!"

"Corey Hall has been honing his chops for several years, which you might not believe from his youthful demeanor. But the true vine American folk roots run strong through his music, both in the original songs and his deft performances of the old treasures of the past century. His voice rings true, combined with a preternatural memory for lyrics. I've never seen him look a "cheat sheet" or even a song list once – something that used to be a given, although in this age of the clip-on tablet and short attention spans it's become a rarity. Hearing this songster is invigorating and an inspiration to lovers of this country's musical roots."

"One very talented musician who can play in a variety of genres ranging from mellow folk to hard rocking psychedelia and old-time Blues. "

With inspiration from blues legends Robert Johnson and Mississippi John Hurt as well as iconic songwriters like Bob Dylan, Corey released his debut single Orange Peel Hop in May 2022, produced by Corey Monsewicz at MZ Audio. Since releasing his first single, Hall has been touring the Gulf Coast region, appearing at Americana rama Music Festival, Will McClean Festival, Blues on Reid Fetival, appearing on WKGC 90.7 The Mix, Radio Cosmos Live, and The St. Andrews Jezebel Podcast. Corey Hall is a fresh face in the Florida Folk scene, but he brings the essence of Roots Music alive through charismatic storytelling and earthy fingerpicking. Through his dynamic performances, Corey pays tribute to an earlier time through his music that evokes a bygone era in the present.
Corey currently is performing 3–4-hour gigs in the Florida Panhandle of original songs and Old Time folk and blues classics and is always willing to travel. Please contact for details!

Corey was born and raised in Florida. Folk and Blues music was played around him from a very young age. It now resonates through him as an artist and a musician.
It's been a long road. He started performing folk songs under the name "Burnt Reynolds" 14 years ago. Living in a tourist town, its hard going for an original artist. Having expanded his song book to include old time folk, blues and country classics, he performs 3-4 hour sets regularly in the Panama City area. I am glad to say that he is FINALLY recording his story through sound! He also currently plays in a Psychedelic rock band "Elder Flovvers"
