The Songs of Generations

by Kori Mallon

A potent vocal centric approach blends faith ballads with expressive imagery in order to paint an allegory of grace. One can hear a balance of influences gleaned from 70’s rock, pop, alternative, folk, and gospel which Kori is able to distill into something unique unto herself. Occasional supporting vocals from her husband, Tim, along with a mix of piano, violin, and guitar accompaniment accentuate her approach without competing for the spotlight. Allegory, faith, solid song craft and a distinct vocal presence crystallize into something recognizable, yet unique and pleasing to the ear. Kori manages to build, track by track, a lyrical narrative reflecting a basic theme of the infallibility of God’s grace despite our actions while avoiding the baggage and preconceived notions of a concept album. She reminds us that one can turn their back on God, but the converse can not be said. We reap just what we sow and we all fall short, but He never stops loving us or offering us hope no m

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A number of years ago, I was sitting in the dining room of my parents’ house listening to my mom play the guitar and sing the song “You Don’t Have to Cry”. Now, I have been listening my parents play and sing their music since I was old enough to begin formulating memories; hearing my mom sing and play the guitar was not anything new. But I didn’t remember this song, “You Don’t Have To Cry”. When she finished singing, I told her that I didn’t remember that song. She and I began discussing all of the songs that she and my dad had written over the years and how if we didn’t document these songs in some way, they would just disappear. She looked at me and said, “Maybe this is for you to do.”

That conversation stuck with me although we wouldn’t seriously pursue this endeavor for another few years.

Fast-forward to my first date with Tim Amos, which was under the guise of soliciting his advice about recording as I knew that he had some recording equipment. His cover for our first one on one meeting was to provide me with his expertise. I told him that my parents had written music that I wanted to record. I would be the lead singer, and we would need to give the music an updated sound while staying true to the vision of each song.

He took the bait.

For the next few years, Tim and I would spend countless hours in the studio putting this album together. Oh, and we also fell very deeply in love. It didn’t take long for me to realize that Tim was the missing piece of the puzzle. His abilities as a musician and as a producer gave life to the songs in a way that only he could’ve done.

When Tim and I got married and moved into our new home, we set up the studio in the basement and determined that we would finish what we had started. On December 31, 2011, we hit the “save” button on the computer and called “The Songs of Generations” complete.

To end my rambling, I want to make this point: God can do anything. God has directed and guided me. As a result, I feel full of purpose and love.

I hope you like the album, that it speaks to you, and that it fills your heart with God’s love.
