Bio:

Greg Cornell’s music courses through that muddy river of bluegrass, country, old-time music, and blues. His work conjures the plaintive and unvarnished beauty of contemporary and classic roots artists such as Ralph Stanley, Blind Lemon Jefferson, John Prine, Gram Parsons, Levon Helm, Garcia and Grisman, and Neil Young. Currently, Cornell has a two-album body of work, Deep Ocean Blues and Come On Home. Cornell’s debut, Deep Ocean Blues, is a spiritual journey of making that brave trek into an emotional and introspective abyss.  It’s follow-up, Come On Home, is produced by fiddler Adam Moss (The Defibulators, Anna Egge, and the Brother Brothers), and engineered by Justin Guip who won three Grammys recording Levon Helms' final albums. This release thematically weaves its title through the album’s tracks. 

 

Cornell has built a robust profile through a diverse calendar of shows. Over the past few years his band, The Cornell Brothers, has appeared at folk conferences and the Sundance Film Festival in Park City UT, toured New England and upstate NY, played festivals throughout the Tristate area, and gigged at the finest listening rooms in NYC.  Cornell’s sincerity, uplifting introspection, and singular approach to making emotionally resonant music from timeless art forms has earned him praise from Americana fans and critics. The popular music discovery and critical outlet Mind Equals Blown says: "Cornell visits the deep, looming sense of longing that's often tied to bluegrass or folksy tracks...and steers clear of any clichés.”
