Kori moves between the worlds of achingly beautiful acoustic piano composition and lavish keyboard production with remarkable ease. The result is Trillium, a cohesive collection of compositions of stunning breadth and dynamic range, confidently held together by her singular musical voice...Will Ackerman.
Kori was born in Cedar City, Utah. She grew up in Minnesota listening to many varied artists ranging from Rock and Roll to Jazz. When she turned 8, she decided she wanted to learn to play the piano. Her parents encouraged her interest by having her take lessons. Many musical artists influenced Kori's music including: Yanni, Vangelis, Enya, Tangerine Dream, Mannheim Steamroller, Shadowfax, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, to name a few. In May of 2003, Kori's husband took her to see a Yanni concert in the hopes that it would fuel the desire to return to music writing after a 12 year period of off and on writing. It worked!! After a 12 year break, she is back to composing and is performing live locally.
