Corey Hager began his homemade escapades back in 2009 by using social media to expand his fan base. The Ripley, West Virginia, musician describes his sound as “acoustic based—pop, rock, country [and] folk, all mixed together. [It’s] a little bit of everything.” Although Hager has only a handful of live bedroom recordings to his name so far, that situation is changing soon: This summer, he’s releasing his debut EP, I Like It That Way, which was produced by Kevin Gates (Never Shout Never, the Ready Set).
