Album Notes
"Sincerely" RELEASED JANUARY 31 2002

" [Sincerely is] Her best work yet, a warmly textured realization of smartly-penned new tunes and beautifully produced by Bruce Winter...Her art- as both singer and song-maker- reaching a higher level of frution than ever poses of irony or edginess here...Thankfully Sipper writes--as she explained from the stage--unapologetically 'from the heart.' Somebody's got to do it." -SANTA BARBARA NEWS-PRESS

"{'Sincerely' is} a remarkable collection of inspired and well-crafted mini-movies....Sipper has confirmed her place as one of the most important singer-songwriters to emerge in recent years." -Cletis Carr/ ROCKRGRL MAGAZINE

People always ask: What does your music sound like? Radio has classified it as "Triple A" (Adult Album Alternative.) In reviews, I have been compared to folk/pop/rock singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Shawn Colvin and Sarah McLaughlin. The description that works best for me is: a singer/songwriter who writes from her heart as best she can.

I started performing my own creations (accompanying myself on the piano) in Junior High School. I spent one year at The Berklee College of Music in Boston in1991. When I came home, at 19, I was playing an acoustic guitar. I started out as a solo artist and released my first album "Life Affirming" in my own bedroom with a group of local musician-friends. After that I organized a band called "Ladybug Garden." We released one album together. The best of those two albums are now on one CD called "The Bedroom Tapes."

In 1994 , as a solo artist, I signed a publishing contract with The Burt Bacharach Music Group/Windswept Pacific. I then recorded my second solo album "Swimology" and released it on my own independent label Drumdrum Records. The release of this album brought a frenzy of record label interest and I signed with an independent label called Nu Millenia. I went to Los Angeles to record an album for them with producer Richard Dashut (of Fleetwood Mac "Rumours" fame).

Also involved in the project were Fleetwood Mac members Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood. Halfway into the making of my album, the company closed it's doors due to internal problems. Instead of fielding more interest from the record industry, I came home and recorded my third release "Orbiter" with longtime friend and collaborator Bruce Winter as producer.

Meanwhile, "Swimology" was released in Japan and when the single "Nervous" became a hit there, I toured overseas opening for rock legend Steve Lukathur (Toto). A strange mix indeed but it proved to be one of the most fun and exciting adventures I ever had. When I came back I released "Orbiter" and decided to tour the states with it.

I was an opener for various nationally known artists including The Samples, Toad the Wet Sprocket and Dan Fogelberg. I also did a national college campus tour on my own. Several songs from "Orbiter" have appeared in Lifetime's television series "The Division" as well as several independent films. At the popular internet record store, "Orbiter" remains one of the top sellers. Through my own label, over 20,000 units of my albums have been sold to date.

I enjoy playing live concerts more and more with each and every show. I either play solo acoustic, in a duo with bassist Brad Cobb, or with a full band including band members: guitarist Jaime Kime (Jewel), drummer Tom Lackner, pianist Anna Abbey and pedal steel player Bill Flores. On January 31, 2002 my fourth album "Sincerely" was released. "Sincerely" was recorded in my home town of Santa Barbara, CA and produced by Bruce Winter.

Personal notes: my birthday is December 23, 1971. I live in a cozy little house with my two cats: Wally and Drumdrum and a dog named Raji. Writing songs is a deep, powerful and comfortable way for me to express myself in connection to this world. And after sharing all of this...I still say...the best way to learn about me and my music is to listen for yourself.


Sipper's chilling ballads, engaging rockers, and heavenly acoustic tapestries coalesce around themes of personal conviction and spiritual regeneration. High-caliber musicianship and production further elevate the independently produced release. Sipper has lofty aspirations and, thankfully, talent to match."

"On 'Orbiter' Cory Sipper proves she's nobody's satellite, she's her own planet." - Performing Songwriter

Orbiter' is a heavenly evolution." - Santa Barbara Independent

More praise for Cory:
"Cory Sipper is one of the most creative and talented singer/songwriters I have heard in a long time." - Mick Fleetwood

"I rarely endorse anyone but when I first heard Cory play live I was totally mesmerized. She is so authentic! I heard so many of my favorite styles of music in her, yet she made it all sound original."- Sean Kelly (The Samples)

Los Angeles Times - "Sipper's voice is as big as all outdoors."

Ussounds Magazine - "It only takes a few seconds of listening to Sipper's extraordinary voice to recognize the immense talent behind this singer/songwriter."

The Muses Muse - A Songwriters Resource "If music is a drug, this girl is dangerous; her songwriting is of a caliber rarely seen"

The Exponent (University of Alabama ,Huntsville campus paper) - "You might call her down- to-earth, unassuming and kind. You might call her fetching, stylish and lovable. Then again you could just say Cory Sipper is one of the coolest and most talented chicks around."

CD Baby

Pop, folk and rock all thread together with with heart, honesty and inspiration to create the rich and beautifully produced tapestry that is this artist's 4th album. A collection of mini-movies that will undoubtedly pull you in. From jumpy, to delicate, this CD is best compared to Sarah McLachlan, and Shawn Colvin with a twinge of Joni Mitchell.


This music leaves you goosebumped!
I was petrified on my sofa after listening to the CD for the first time. I didn´t want to move so I wouldn´t lose the feeling that the music had left in me. And this voice - sometimes hoarse but always sweet - is just perfect to tell you all the stories. I am really glad that I decided to get this CD - it´s a keeper!

repeat customer

I originally discovered this amazing artist right here on CDBaby, and I recently returned again to buy a few more copies for people I knew had to hear this CD. What can I say, but Cory has one of the most beautiful voices you'll ever hear....

Good looking nightingale strikes again!
A few years ago I first heard of Cory Sipper. In fairness I couldn’t imagine that this good looking “nightingale” could also make a CD of the same quality. I was wrong! Since then, her CD “Orbiter” has been one of my all time favorite (independent) albums. And when I first listened to “Sincerely”, her latest release, I was taken by surprise. This CD is even better than “Orbiter”! Cory still sings her roussing self-composed songs with a warm, beautiful (sensual) voice but she's improved her songwriting skills. She really stands out from the herd as she delivers honest emotion in each and every one of these tracks. For me “Sincerely” proves once more that Cory is an (yet) undiscovered star. Hey, you guys in the record industry: Wake up!!!!!!


The Infamous CJ!

Sincerely eclipse the stellar Orbitter!
I must say I fell in love with Cory Sipper's music when I heard "This Veil" on DMX Music on my digital cable. It was just absolutely beautious. I got Orbitter and was touched by the romanticism and the subtleties which contributed to the atmosphere. I got Sincerely because I really loved Orbitter. I was very surprised to find that this was even better than Orbitter! The film strip on the cover was a good representation of what the songs are, a collection of mini films as Cory matured over the period of time between recordings. Just subtely atmospheric and more emotionally powerful than the last. My favorite song would be "Practice," a haunting song of self-reflection. I feel that I haven't given Cory her justice with this review. She is just one of my favorite artists ever, I hope she is enjoying her time off and that she comes by Chicago when she is touring again.


This CD and Cory's previous CD, "Orbiter", are in my top twenty favorite albums of all time. Amazing songwriting, lyricism, performances by Santa Barbara's best studio musicians, and genius production (and co-arranging?) by Bruce Winter. This music grows on you like a forbidden it!!
