Last year, little-known singer/songwriter Corey Bost was going through a difficult time in his life, dealing with deep family issues and broken relationships. To cope, this lifelong Fort Lauderdale native penned five songs that eventually became his debut EP, Kingdom. With nonexistent promotion and no marketing arm, Bost's collection of melancholic and cathartic songs somehow landed on iTunes' new and noteworthy page.
It was a freak occurrence that brought this unsuspecting musician a bit of notoriety. "I was going through a shitty time in my life and wrote these songs and released them myself, not really expecting much," Bost told New Times while taking a break from his day job as community event organizer for local event and media company C&I Studios.
