Album Notes
Cory Sipper Biography and Press

People always ask: What does your music sound like? Radio has classified it as "Triple A" (Adult Album Alternative.) In reviews, I have been compared to folk/pop/rock singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Shawn Colvin and Sarah McLaughlin. The description that works best for me is: a singer/songwriter who writes from her heart as best she can.

I started performing my own creations (accompanying myself on the piano) in Junior High School. I spent one year at The Berklee College of Music in Boston in1991. When I came home, at 19, I was playing an acoustic guitar. I started out as a solo artist and released my first album "Life Affirming" in my own bedroom with a group of local musician-friends. After that I organized a band called "Ladybug Garden." We released one album together. The best of those two albums are now on one CD called "The Bedroom Tapes."

In 1994 , as a solo artist, I signed a publishing contract with The Burt Bacharach Music Group/Windswept Pacific. I then recorded my second solo album "Swimology" and released it on my own independent label Drumdrum Records. The release of this album brought a frenzy of record label interest and I signed with an independent label called Nu Millenia. I went to Los Angeles to record an album for them with producer Richard Dashut (of Fleetwood Mac "Rumours" fame). Also involved in the project were Fleetwood Mac members Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood. Halfway into the making of my album, the company closed it's doors due to internal problems. Instead of fielding more interest from the record industry, I came home and recorded my third release "Orbiter" with longtime friend and collaborator Bruce Winter as producer.

Meanwhile, "Swimology" was released in Japan and when the single "Nervous" became a hit there, I toured overseas opening for rock legend Steve Lukathur (Toto). A strange mix indeed but it proved to be one of the most fun and exciting adventures I ever had. When I came back I released "Orbiter" and decided to tour the states with it. I was an opener for various nationally known artists including The Samples, Toad the Wet Sprocket and Dan Fogelberg. I also did a national college campus tour on my own. Several songs from "Orbiter" have appeared in Lifetime's television series "The Division" as well as several independent films. At the popular internet record store, "Orbiter" remains one of the top sellers. Through my own label, over 20,000 units of my albums have been sold to date.

I enjoy playing live concerts more and more with each and every show. I either play solo acoustic, in a duo with bassist Brad Cobb, or with a full band including band members: guitarist Jaime Kime (Jewel), drummer Tom Lackner, pianist Anna Abbey and pedal steel player Bill Flores. On January 31, 2002 my fourth album "Sincerely" was released. "Sincerely" was recorded in my home town of Santa Barbara, CA and produced by Bruce Winter.

Personal notes: my birthday is December 23, 1971. I live in a cozy little house with my two cats: Wally and Drumdrum and a dog named Raji. Writing songs is a deep, powerful and comfortable way for me to express myself in connection to this world. And after sharing all of this...I still say...the best way to learn about me and my music is to listen for yourself.


"Sincerely" (2002)

"Her best work yet, a warmly textured realization of smartly-penned new tunes and beautifully produced by Bruce Winter...Her art- as both singer and song-maker- reaching a higher level of frution than ever poses of irony or edginess here...Thankfully Sipper writes--as she explained from the stage--unapologetically 'from the heart.' Somebody's got to do it."
-Santa Barbara News Press

"{'Sincerely' is} a remarkable collection of inspired and well-crafted mini-movies....Sipper has confirmed her place as one of the most important singer-songwriters to emerge in recent years."
_Cletis Carr/ Rockrgrl Magazine


Sipper's chilling ballads, engaging rockers, and heavenly acoustic tapestries coalesce around themes of personal conviction and spiritual regeneration. High-caliber musicianship and production further elevate the independently produced release. Sipper has lofty aspirations and, thankfully, talent to match."

"On 'Orbiter' Cory Sipper proves she's nobody's satellite, she's her own planet." - Performing Songwriter

Orbiter' is a heavenly evolution." - Santa Barbara Independent

More praise for Cory:

"Cory Sipper is one of the most creative and talented singer/songwriters I have heard in a long time." - Mick Fleetwood

"I rarely endorse anyone but when I first heard Cory play live I was totally mesmerized. She is so authentic! I heard so many of my favorite styles of music in her, yet she made it all sound original."- Sean Kelly (The Samples)

Los Angeles Times - "Sipper's voice is as big as all outdoors."

Ussounds Magazine - "It only takes a few seconds of listening to Sipper's extraordinary voice to recognize the immense talent behind this singer/songwriter."

The Muses Muse - A Songwriters Resource "If music is a drug, this girl is dangerous; her songwriting is of a caliber rarely seen"

The Exponent (University of Alabama ,Huntsville campus paper) - "You might call her down- to-earth, unassuming and kind. You might call her fetching, stylish and lovable. Then again you could just say Cory Sipper is one of the coolest and most talented chicks around."

Jennifer Mcgee

More and More Complex
I bought three of Cory Sipper's CDs at once and am really impressed with the development I see in them. Orbiter has the same complexity of emotion and lyric as her earlier work, but the instrumentation has become deeper and more complex in this album, perfectly complimenting her beautiful voice.

Ed Brown

Saw Cory at Live Oak Festivle 2002. Her CD's are still my in my favorites pile
Was with my daughters when we saw Cory at Live Oak Festival 2002. Bought one CD, and now have purchased Orbiter. Interesting to see how she grew from one album to the next. This girl has wonderful spirit, and a voice that stays with you. My daughter (age 10) loves to sing along with her songs. Read Cory married last year, so we look forward to new songs from her. (please hurry Cory) I'm sure they'll offer new insight into relationships from the perspective of a woman who has found her true love.

Can you say "One of the Best" I knew you could.
Thank goodness you can't wear out CDs I've played this one more than any other that I've bought in the past 2 years. Great words,out standing arrangements, and the voice that you can't help but fall in love with. Thank you Ms. Sipper. You have a real fan!

Earl Shimabukuro

Affecting, truth-seeking...Miss Sipper's Orbiter conveys deep truths.
Orbiter is a cohesive collection of well-written songs
that at once wavers between the desire to dream and the
need to cut to the truth of reality. The lyrics are
superb, the music compliments without pretension, and
miss sipper's voice conveys so much heartfelt emotion that
you have no choice but to listen to the album whole at
each sitting. Remarkable.


orbiter is out of this world!
i first came across cory sipper as a fellow artist and was genuinely impressed, so i finally got round to buying the album the mp3s came from. she's got to be one of america's finest musical artists - and i don't usually say that sort of thing. for god's sake, by it - you won't regret it.

The Irish Rover

I can't take this CD out of my player
The best of all the female stars rapped up into one wonderful package. I really do have trouble not listening all moods are covered, tears to joy and everything in between. Just great!


Oh.... NOW I get it!
This is what you may say about your very important world after you listen to these tracks. Perspective, passion and trueness to self. It will take you away from the consuming details of everyday living. Filled with healthy realization and encouragement. Way to go, Cory!

John Land

Irresistably Romantic.
Cory's song "Marrow" is a masterpiece, a richly textured musing on life's regeneration (or so I interpret it), and that's just the first track...A true sonic delight awaits you on this cd. You should buy it right away.


Sweet music... cool beans.
Great voice... nice work.... cool beans.
