Looking to experience SXSW for the first time in his career, our next ATX Challenge finalist is Philadelphia’s own Corey Lee.

Making waves in the industry for the last couple of years, Corey is striving to make 2017 his best one yet. Back in January, he released a catchy new track “Corey Album Coming” part 2, which both served as a new music release, as well as an announcement that his debut album was on the way. Picked up by major publications including HipHopDX, Revolt and more, the track was produced by the talented KilConfirmed and set the tone for what’s soon to come.

Keeping the buzz high, this past week on Valentine’s Day, Corey unleashed “Remember” — the first single from his upcoming debut album A Shot In The Dark set to drop on March 10th. The 808 Trel-produced cut set the tone for a meaningful Valentine’s Day and further built anticipation for Corey’s debut album.

Having passion for your craft is a necessity if you’re ever going to become a superstar, and for Corey, succeeding in this industry and displaying his art is all that matters to him. “I put everything into my music,” Corey tells us. “Besides my family, this is all that I have.”
