Throughout the past decade, eastern Kentucky native Kory Caudill has become a force to be reckoned with in the music industry, and has enjoyed success in music that spans all genres. While Kory’s “awe shucks” demeanor, boots, and ball cap can be deceiving, his musical background is polished as it is natural. Widely considered one of the world’s top virtuoso pianists, Caudill began cultivating a life in music when he was only four years old, and he attributes much of his success to his rural Appalachian background.
As Kory’s abilities grew, he maintained a strong grip on his roots, which led to the creation of a highly unique, genuine mixture of flavors in his original music. This innovative blend caught the attention of Naxos of America, the #1 independent classical music distributor in the U.S. and Canada. The forward-thinking organization was highly impressed by Kory, which led them to sign him as the flagship artist to their imprint, Suite 28 records. Since the release of his debut album, Tree of Life, the young artist has celebrated groundbreaking achievements as an instrumentalist, including debuting inside Billboard’s top ten Jazz and New Age categories. Behind the scenes, Caudill has spent much of his time in Nashville recording studios, where he has been on the creative side of numerous hit records. Most notably, Kory has toured with country music superstar, Justin Moore, since the multi-platinum artists’ signing to the Big Machine Label Group in 2008.
While recording an album during the fall of 2018, Caudill crossed paths with Toronto based writer/producer/publisher Marc Costanzo. The two immediately recognized each other’s abilities and began creating music that allowed their unique backgrounds to intersect seamlessly. After working amongst themselves for over a year, Caudill launched Inside Music Nashville, a partner company to Costanzo’s Inside Music Publishing. The new company operates as a writing/production house that combines the resources of Caudill and Constanzo, and has a vested interest in over 35 million records sold. As president of the company, Kory continues to form strategic partnerships throughout Nashville, New York, Los Angeles, and the U.K.
Caudill looks to draw from his past experiences and his ever evolving musical sound as he assumes the role of musical director/primary artist in a new global concert series titled the Concert for the Human Family. Operating in partnership with the Episcopal Church, the series will take place in some of the world’s most inspirational spaces, and aims to create musical experiences that highlight themes of community and racial reconciliation.
Whether in front of thousands of people under shining lights or in the intimate setting of a studio, or local church, Kory's kind, humble spirit is always present to compliment his amazing talent.
