Tinnitist TV | Episode 16: Corey McCormick

The veteran bassist talks Neil Young, Lukas Nelson, his own band Organa & more.


One thing leads to another. This might be especially true for Corey McCormick.

Back in 2010, the California bassist – who had previously played with Chris Cornell — joined Lukas Nelson and Promise Of The Real. That’s a pretty good gig on its own. But it was just a new beginning for McCormick, who soon found himself crossing paths with some major artists. He played with Lukas’s father Willie Nelson. He recorded and toured with Neil Young, who recruited Promise Of The Real for a series of albums and tours that kicked off with 2015’s The Monsanto Years. He and POTR also backed up Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in the 2018 remake of A Star Is Born. And if all that weren’t enough, McCormick is also working to get his own band Organa off the ground. The eclectic trio recently released their latest single Shine, which mixes funk and soul with southern-fried jam-rock, and they’re working towards a full-length album in the not-too-distant future. From a recent stop on Promise Of The Real‘s endless road, McCormick Zoomed in to talk about Organa, his different bosses and which other bands he’d like to join, since apparently he’s still not busy enough. Listen to Organa below, and get more info from Corey McCormick‘s website and Instagram.
