Seattle, WA – Kory Caudill + Wordsmith: The Concert for the Human Family
March 4 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Kory Caudill: www.KoryCaudill.com
“A rising star whose music marries folk, Americana and more.” Keyboard Magazine
Performer, producer and industry executive are just some of the roles that multi-faceted musician Kory Caudill inhabits on a daily basis. From his past touring work with famed country artist Justin Moore, to his own chart-topping solo releases and acclaimed live shows, the Nashville-based keyboardist and entrepreneur is charing a compelling course that’s all his own. And his singular sound and string of successes can be traced straight back to his Appalachian roots.
“I was born and raised in rural Kentucky,” Caudill says. “And while both of my grandparents were career coal miners, musical roots run deep through my family. My grandmother and great grandfather were well-known Gospel musicians in their communities. They lived in a region that was isolated from just about all modern conveniences, but that helped to preserve its culture. In fact, I still regularly use a cymbal on recording sessions that my great-grandfather fashioned by hand to use in church services. Also, my mom is a retired music teacher and my dad is a great keyboardist and he helped bring modern music technology to rural Kentucky. I’m sure that my ability to wear a variety of musical hats comes from my family.”

IN 2009 HE OPENED HIS INDEPENDENT LABEL NU REVOLUTION ENTERTAINMENT AND SINCE ITS INCEPTION; DISTRIBUTION AND LICENSING DEALS WITH INGROOVES, UNITED MASTERS, REDEYE, AND APM MUSIC HELPED THE COMPANY FLOURISH!

“What movement could begin, what conversation could take the stage, if everything else got out of the way?
This Concert for the Human Family event is an inspiring collaborative between award-winning musicians and church leaders who believe in the power of music and storytelling to foster Beloved Community. Experience genre-bending original music that bridges jazz, hip-hop and bluegrass, performed by a multicultural team led by Nashville pianist and composer Kory Caudill. All woven with sacred stories to launch conversation around reconciliation, healing and justice in the communities we call home.
It’s the power of music, for the sake of love.”
