Cory Clark on SoundBetter

I am lucky enough to work regularly with 50x platinum writer/producer Adam Watts in Broken City Studios helping produce artists, write, arrange, play multiple instruments, & vocals, etc. And here in my home studio with all my guitar gear and toys I can help you remotely with YOUR songs!

Hi there! Glad you found me. I do my best work when I’m collaborating with other artists, which leads me here!

Touring Guitarist/Touring Artist, Session Guitarist, Session Vocalist, Producing/Songwriting, Acoustic Solo Artist/Performer, Band Member Guy... I've helped with young Artist Development, signed with Record Labels and Management, backed up Major Label Artist & Indie Artists, been in a ton of bands ranging from Acoustic Pop to Metal... I've been blessed to have done a little bit of everything as a musician in the industry and it's taken me all over the country and a few different parts of the world.

I work regularly in a proper studio in Brea, California with 50x Platinum SongWriter/Producer Adam Watts, (Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Colton Dixon, etc) but here in my home studio I have many guitars, mics and sounds at my reach anytime.

I specialize in creating guitar parts, ambient textures & colors, leads, effects...and as a singer and songwriter myself, I love digging into collaborating on melodies, lyrics, or adding BGVs and harmonies to something.

Send me a message! I’d love to discuss your project and see if I can help.

Pop, Rock, Alternative, Singer/Songwritter, Americana, Blues, R&B, Metal, Hip Hop, Electronic, Funk, Instrumental...etc.

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

    Cory is an absolute pro with excellent instincts and work ethic. Cory and I are on different coasts and he was able to deliver amazing tracks and options to pull my project to completion in record time. I highly recommend him to anybody looking for a true professional to enhance any songs. I plan on working with Cory for all my projects!

    Cory’s tracks added tone, texture and grit to my demo. He absolutely took it to another level. I’m sure i’ll work with him again.

    Cory was great to work with. With very little direction, he quickly got the vibe I was looking for and delivered a series of layered tracks that gave me plenty of options to pick from. Great communication. Quick turnaround. Highly recommended. Will definitely work with him again.

    I've played with Cory over the years on church gigs and various live gigs. I've also done sessions with him here at my studio for one of his records. Cory is a very creative player. I love his tones and excellent musical choices. There is a good reason why Adam Watts calls him for so many sessions. If you need guitar, bass or vocals I highly recommend Cory!

    Cory is a great guitarist and producer! I've sent him sessions before with simple reference tracks and he's sent stems back that have fit perfectly with little to no editing. One of my favorite guitarists to work with!
