"An Open Letter to the Public" - by CORE

Traditional "biographies" are for those who can explain themselves, their created art, and their motives inside the safety of predetermined boundaries with modern descriptors.

And for those who choose these traditional methods of bio-graphing, shall by all means, proceed doing so.

Core, however, chooses not to.

Respectfully, shouldn't works of art or music be able to speak for themselves?

You see, like a high-class job interview or mortgage application, heavy embellishment of facts are not only encouraged, but expected in order to achieve the desired outcome. That outcome, of course, being approval.

But if an approval or resounding acknowledgement is founded on falsehoods, of what use is the success that may follow?

By acknowledging and removing the useless pressure of attaining an approval based on lies, we can supply you with a few pertinent facts free of exaggeration about our band, Core.

So... Here are 8 facts about Core.
(Cue Letterman's countdown drum-roll)

Fact #1. - Core is comprised of Shawn Wells (Drums), Jerry Hatfield II (Bass), and Christopher Bailey (Vocals/Guitars).

Fact #2. - Core is located in a small town in southern West Virginia.

Fact #3. - Core takes considerable issue with labeling themselves as belonging to any genre, due to the definitions of specific genres seemingly changing weekly.

Fact #4. - Core deeply cares about the world surrounding them. The politics, the injustices, the beauty, the natural sexuality, the double-standards, the hate, the love, and the truth of it all.

Fact #5. - Core will gratefully perform for any crowd.

Fact #6. - Core wants to touch the world, two ears at a time if need be.

Fact #7. - Core is built upon love. If you're able to maintain sanity and spread peace in a world so utterly twisted, we have much love for you. Though it may not be immediately apparent, know that love is the driving inspiration behind Core.

Fact #8. - Core can catch Blue-Cats like you've never seen. Join us on a humid summer night on the New River and see for yourself.

We sincerely appreciate your visit.
Much Love.

Be sound.
