Cory Bishop grew up in Southern California, leaving home for college in Nashville to study music and religion. He ping-ponged between both subjects, even spending a semester in Seminary after college, before dropping out for good to pursue music. His music draws from his Bible background here and there, but mostly reflects his spiritual interests through the overwhelming positivity in the music. "I see it now," Bishop asserts, "as my job and my duty to craft songs that can help people catch a glimpse of hope; catch a glimpse of love and redemption." This is the central message woven into his new five-song EP, released 10/7/14. Hope, love, and redemption aren't new themes to any songwriter, but Bishop manages to deal with these themes carefully, tastefully, and without cliché.

The self-titled release touts the talents of Bishop's Nashville contemporaries: producer Dan Fernandez (Great Peacock), Matt Scibilia (Cory Chisel, Brendan Benson), Amos Heller (Taylor Swift), and Grammy-award winner Andy Hunt (Buddy Guy, Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors).
