Blues / Rock / Indie / Soul-Folk
Corey Medina is a Blues-Rock artist from Shiprock, NM on the Navajo Tribal Nation. He moved to Northern Minnesota in 2012 to be closer to his girlfriend, now wife and mother to their two beautiful children. After a couple years of community work and getting to know the music scene, Corey was able to debut his first album in 2015 with a local producers’ collaboration called Incepticons. Corey now plays, writes and produces full time with his band known as “The Brothers,” hence Corey Medina & Brothers. Corey refers to the Brothers as a representation of the relationship he likes to keep with his fellow bandmates. Currently the Brothers band consists of Eric Sundeen of Bemidji on drums and Gary Broste, also from Bemidji, on upright bass. After 3 years of talking about a full length studio album, in 2019 Corey and The Brothers released their debut full length album, “Better Days”. At the end of July they will be recording their studio sophomore album in Minneapolis. They set out to spread light in the dark with their raw, soulful, intimate music and stage presence. Major sponsors are Enbridge, R.D. Offutt Farms and TruStar Federal Credit Union. Band sponsor August 12 is the Park Rapids Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau.
