A Personal Anecdote:

In the last 4 years, I've lost my confidence in people. The amount of effort I've taken to make friends with some people that I "thought" were my friends, which turned out to be a lesson for me. I've been crushed and melted by a few who had it in their head, to treat me poorly. I am so good natured, that sometimes I am way too nice to fight back. I finally had to put my foot down, and say.. ENOUGH! Its either them or me.. and I chose myself. To preserve who I am, to preserve the sanity I have left to be there for my family and friends that DO care about me. To also preserve what integrity I had left and talent I have inside to create the music that I do.

I walked away from some important people, that might have made a difference in my musical career.. but for my personal life, made it very difficult for me to have any kind of good feelings or thoughts towards them. I began treating my family and the friends that DO love me and care about me poorly. I decided that I can't work that way and I will not allow anyone to bring me down to their level. I sure as hell will not be a pawn for anyone to play with. It was a non negotiable situation. I wasn't about to stick around and argue about it. So I walked away, and began on the process of healing.

This road of healing, has opened doors to other people and new friends and old friends that have stood with me. It has opened up new opportunities which I will be announcing in the next month or so. My new album I am working on is also this very personal expression of this lesson that I have learned.

I will stand and create the music that is inside of me, MY way.. I will NOT give in to what I did a few years back. I will not give up my integrity to get ahead at the expense of others. THAT is not my M.O.

Get ready for some wonderful moments with me in my journey.. because its going to be super cool!!

FaceBook Changes...

I'm off to a great start for 2013.  After a year of contemplating whether or not to separate my Personal FB pages and my Music page... I've gone and done it.  Without any hubub, tadoo or any bruhaha... I've deactivated my "Kori L Carothers" account.

This isn't a goodbye or I'm leaving the internet... it means I need to separate my personal life from my musical life. I know some of you will be offended.... (not all of my friends are going to be on my private profile.)  Many of you have my email, have my blog info... all my other social networking stuffas.. AND phone number.. so you can text me, email me or even a phone call... woah.. really calling on the phone what a concept?! Besides... I like talking on the phone much better than texting or emailing back and forth.  The phone call is a better personal touch.. THAT way I can hear your voice.

For those of you that may be offended.. I am sorry. It was time to do this.  If you want to keep in touch with me...join me on my music page.  You can post photos, message me.. and keep in touch.  Hopefully FB will implement a few more personal touches for Music/Band pages.

I love all of you and am so thankful that you support me by visiting me here, and my website... etc.  Wishing you all the very best of 2013!

Peace in Music,



This past week has been very difficult for me to get through.  I've been sick.. so sick, I went to the ER on Monday the 14th.  Thankfully the ER staff gave us the choice to have me admitted to the hospital or go home and recover with some very heavy duty antibiotics. We opted for me to come home.

As I have been recovering, I've been planning the LiveStream broadcasts.  What would be something you would like to see, or have me talk about?  I will for sure perform music!

Thanks for your patience waiting for all of this to happen!!

More to come...

Piano SoundScapes Test Broadcast...

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!!!  I tried out something fairly daring for this girl today! I shot a live broadcast this morning on my iPhone using LiveStream. I am working on broadcasting live concerts from my music room!! Pretty cool eh?

Here is the broadcast for you to watch:  *disclaimer* I am in my work out gear, AND no make up whatsoever... Just a spur of the moment thing that I have been DYING to try.
