Cory Clark on SoundBetter

Great songs deserve great production and great sonic textures. If you have a song that you believe in, I’d love to help! Electric & Acoustic guitars, BGVS/Harmony/Lead Vocals, Bass, Production, whatever the song needs!

Plenty of people out there can play the guitar, and some better than me! But what I strive for is making creative and melodic parts that elevate the song. And the sound and tone of those parts is equally important. And sometimes the guitar shouldn't even SOUND like a guitar! One of my favorite things to do is turn it into a different instrument like a synth and use effects to come up with textures and ambient sounds.

I love collaborating with other musicians. We truly are greater than the sum of our parts when we collaborate. I've been lucky enough to work with some INCREDIBLY talented people in my musical journey so far. And I've learned a lot. In the studio, on the road, with my own music, with other artist's music, producing, engineering, working on music for films and commercials... it's all music to me and I'll be doing it until I can't do it no more.
Send me a message! I’d love to discuss your project and see if I can help.

    Cory's creative guitar tracks for my song were beyond what I could have expected. His pro level work and efforts on my song were amazing. An absolute pleasure to work with and looking forward to connecting with him again. Highly recommended!!

    Wow. I don't even know what to say. Only that I wish I'd known Cory long ago so that we could've been making some amazing tunes together all this time. I can't say enough positive things about my experiences working with Cory. It's not just his playing ability, which is superb, but it's really more about what he hears. He has real talent for digging deep and pulling out something more from what you send him. 5 stars hardly feels like enough!

    I loved the electric guitars that Cory did on my track so much that I ended up also reaching out to him to do the bass as well. Cory nailed the part and tone - it AGAIN fit perfectly in my mix with just minor static fader adjustment. Normally I do the bass parts for my tracks but Cory’s tone sensibility and locked-in playing added so much to my song... my Fender Mustang bass might be seeing less action in the future...

    5/5, will work with Cory again on future projects.

    Just finished a project in record time with Cory. He nailed it from the get go - and although he indicated he’d handle any revisions, none were needed. He followed the brief perfectly and came up with guitar parts and tones that fit effortlessly in the mix (seriously. I only needed to use static panning and static volume adjustments and they sat perfectly).

    For future projects, I’ll absolutely be keeping Cory in the loop!!

    Back in the summer I gambled by choosing Cory from among the many high rated guitar players on here. Well... since then it's been my joy to bring him in on literally most of what I do. The guy is a legend. Beyond a pleasure to work with, a genius at perfectly tasteful tone and parts, and delivers stems that are a breeze for playing with in final prod. Truly, I cannot possibly recommend him enough. Might as well stop scrolling. :P
