by Kaitlin Milligan - Feb 20, 2020

Cory Becker's debut album, One, came to life in a one-room studio in the dirt floored basement of his Echo Park rental, which he built from ground up. The album embraces the authenticity and experimentation of analog recording - engineering and producing the album himself, he experimented with a variety of techniques and performed nearly every aspect of the album himself, aside from select musical guests he invited to play on select tracks. Despite being Becker's first try at recording and producing everything on his own, he was able to create a unique sonic footprint that encompasses modern indie rock and folk, and the values and traditions of the canon of American roots music. One is out tomorrow, February 21st.

Stream all three singles now ahead of the release and check Cory Becker live in LA this February. Cory Becker's debut album One is out 2/21.
