My name is Corey Stewart and I am a songwriter, musician, producer and blogger from Australia.
“But what does all that mean?” I hear you ask…
Since writing my first song at the age of 13, I have been totally addicted to writing songs. For me, songwriting is a craft, an art-form, a process, an emotional outlet and (most importantly) a way of life.
I have written songs and composed music for my own live music/songwriting projects as well as for other people. I have also collaborated with many songwriters and lyricists from around the world and have participated in songwriting challenges like FAWM, 5090 and RPM to keep my songwriting skills sharpened.
As well as finding opportunities to perform my songs live and getting them published, I am currently focussing on building an aural portfolio of music to be considered for inclusion in music libraries and sync licensing company rosters.
All my life I was able to sing but my journey as a musician first started by learning to play clarinet in High School whilst at the same time teaching myself guitar and then bass.
In 2012 I released my first CD “Seeing Stars”
Over the past five years I have been seriously teaching myself piano so I can further broaden my palette of sounds and instruments to enhance my songwriting process.
As a seasoned live performer with hundreds (maybe just over 1000) of gigs under his belt, I’m available for live shows either performing my own music and/or covers either as a soloist or in a band as well as studio session opportunities.

In 2012, after spending much time and money recording my first CD “Seeing Stars” (not that I’m complaining, it certainly was money well spent) I decided that it would be a good idea to finally start learning how to record my own music.
Fast forward to today and I have a very handy songwriting studio at my disposal called SongMachine which allows me (in theory) to put down any songwriting idea at any time of the day or night.
Having a songwriting studio also makes it easy to collaborate with other musicians too.
You can listen to my music either in completed or demo form (including my many collaborations) on either SoundCloud or BandCamp.
I started my first tentative steps online in 2000 when I got my first computer and from there I quickly discovered the world of blogging and immediately realised how beneficial it was for musicians and businesses alike.
Being a geek at heart, I took to the internet and web design as a duck would take to water. From this love of all things online, I started a web design company ZenWeb Systems.
At the end of the day, I am passionate about writing whether it be songs or blogs and Corey Stewart Online as an online extension of my personality allows me to speak my mind and air my thoughts through the written word.
