Therapy Thursdays : Kill Paris with Illenium & Manic Focus

Corey Baker, better known as Kill Paris, was born in a small town in Indiana, USA. His musical journey outside of touring has taken him from Indiana, to Florida, Nashville, Los Angeles, and now currently Colorado.

Starting out playing guitar at age 15, Corey’s musical background has always revolved around instruments. From guitar, Corey began learning piano, bass, and drums through his teen years. After college in Tampa, Florida, Corey set off to Nashville where he would experience an entirely different genre, Country. Corey played bass in several different singer/songwriter country artist bands. At the same time, Corey began devoting more time to “Kill Paris”. He started to play dj and live sets around town.

“I used to take a bass, guitar, keyboard, foot pedal, laptop, and drum pad down to this Bosnian cafe in Nashville. I’d play for a good 3 hours, just jamming, and there would be like 2 people in the restaurant.”

Feeling unfulfilled, Corey packed everything up and moved to Sarasota, Florida. He moved in with fellow artist Jake Dubber aka “Shock to the System”. In Florida, Corey came to really get his feet wet djing.

“Jake and I would pack up all our stuff and drive to whatever bar would let us play. It’s, a small city, so there’s not that many people around. We had so much fun though!”

After living there for a year, Corey decided to go back to Indiana. He got a 9 to 5 job working at a music store. At that time, he also became an Ableton Certified Trainer. While working at the music store, he taught 1 on 1 production lessons and held seminars.

After teaching regularly and becoming burnt out on the 9 to 5, Corey decided to pack it all up again, this time to move to LA.

His touring career ignited in late 2012 after his first free releases that coined his now undeniable Kill Paris signature sound, a combination of melodic bass melodies fused with funk and glitch elements. When you hear Kill Paris you know it’s him.

In 2013; he signed his first publishing agreement, released his first EP “To A New Earth” on OWSLA, toured with Zedd, performed in India, Sweden, Germany, & France, performed at Ultra Music Festival Miami & America’s very first Tomorrowworld, surpassed 100k fans on Facebook and garnished 8 million Soundcloud plays.

In 2014; he performed at Coachella, released his second EP on OWSLA titled “Foreplay”, toured with Bassnectar as direct support on the “Noise vs Beauty” U.S. Tour, surpassed 200k fans on Facebook & 17 million Soundcloud plays.

In 2015; he released his debut album, “Galaxies Between Us”, for free download on Sexy Electric, his own independent record label. The album release was followed up and supported with a 2 month long headline tour across the United States and Canada.
