Born on the coast of Oregon, Denver-based artist Cory Kendrix moved to Texas at a young age and emerged with a unique and versatile sound which crosses the line between pop songwriting and trap production. The Austin Chronicle called him "soul machine Cory Kendrix" while the Denver Westword described his live set as "absolutely lit". Cory has performed at festivals such as SXSW, Pop Montreal, A3C, Fun Fun Fun Fest & NXNE as well as numerous tours such as the LRG Homegrown Tour, The Hip-Hop Gods Tour, Yelawolf Texas Tour, Big Sean College Tour, Sneaker Pimps Tour, The Return of Screw York City Tour, The Cool Kids Southwest Tour and the Lz In The Sky Texas Tour. In 2016, he opened for Tinashe, Tory Lanez, Freddie Gibbs, Ugly God, Soulja Boy, Lil Wayne & Wiz Khalifa. Cory Kendrix is currently working on multiple projects for upcoming release in 2017 which will cater to both trap fans and R&B audiences.
