Kori's saga is filled with a love affair for music. From the time she heard the Beatles as a child, she knew she wanted to create music. Kori's parents thought it wise to have her take piano lessons. Her favorite musicians were a mix of Jazz, Rock and Classical sounds which included,Herb Alpert, Led Zepplin, Jethro Tull, Beethoven, Mozart, Shadowfax, Mannheim Steamroller, John Williams, Tangerine Dream and Will Ackerman. Kori chose to create instrumental music that infuses electronic and acoustic sounds. Her main instrument, the piano speaks with clarity, and she also can move effortlessly to the keyboards as well as Native American flute. When Words Are Not Enough, listen to Kori's music and you can feel what she is saying.
"Kori Carothers is, without question a brilliant pianist and composer. What sets her apart, however, is the broad range of styles she utilizes so gracefully. Kori moves between the worlds of achingly beautiful acoustic piano composition and lavish keyboard production with remarkable ease. The result 'Trillium', a cohesive collection of compositions of stunning breadth and dynamic range, confidently held together by her singular musical voice."
