    Corduroy is a musician who makes his home right here in central Illinois, where he was raised. Corduroy is a folk artist who combines acoustic guitar, crisp vocals, on-stage effects, and the occasional thunder of a bass drum to create a unique and unforgettable experience. Drawing his inspiration from folk rock, Americana, indie folk, and even familiar pop/rock artists, Corduroy has the ability to create a high energy musical experience without losing the eclectic and soulful feelings you would expect from any great folk performer.
