Corey Harper Releases Music Video for "Don't Hate Me"
Singer-songwriter Corey Harper has released the video for his new track "Don't Hate Me" today. Directed by Collin Duddy, the video follows a conflicted Corey as he struggles to come to grips with the fate of his relationship and the aftermath of a breakup. The colorful visual highlights the song's heartfelt lyrics, bluesy guitar riff, and Corey's emotional vocals.
“I wanted something simpler this time around, but Collin made something simple look so much better than I could have imagined. We had a lot of fun on the shoot and just laughed our way through the day. I find it hard to take myself seriously at times, but the guys made me get out of my comfort zone and get into it. Also, Collin is so hot right now!” - Corey Harper
Corey is also wrapping up a string of West Coast dates opening for Julia Michaels. Click HERE to purchase tickets.
The Topanga-based troubadour uncovers an era-spanning style of his own at the crossroads of traditional folk songcraft, impressive guitarwork, bluesy gusto, and 21stcentury pop adventurousness. The singer and songwriter sifts through a lifetime of influences in order to assemble a vibrant, vivid, and vital vision.
Since his emergence in 2015, he has quietly set the stage for such an evolution. At 19-years-old, Corey dropped out of college in Eugene, Oregon, grabbed his guitar, and relocated to an eternal haven for creatives of all kinds: Venice Beach, CA.
Just blocks away from the Pacific Ocean, he spearheads the genesis of an arts collective and hangout known as Winston House. After reposting clips of Corey on guitar, Cody Simpson tapped him to handle six-string duties on a national tour. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber caught a Winston House performance and invited Corey to open up a run of Pacific Northwest dates on the sold-out Purpose Tour in 2016.
Teaming up with producer Andrew Wells [Meghan Trainor], he unveiled the On The RunEP following his appearance on the historic tour. Its title track racked up 7 million-plus streams as he garnered widespread acclaim from Rolling Stone, Billboard, American Songwriter, Teen Vogue, Baeble Music, and more. Along the way, he toured with the likes of Niall Horan, Noah Kahan, Julia Michaels and has also performed at Bonnaroo, BottleRock, Sasquatch, Ohana Festival and more.
