As a teenager, Corey embraced the street culture, party life, and Houston’s “chopped and screwed” music scene. Eventually, he realized that even if he gained all of it, it wouldn’t change the pain, poverty or hopelessness that his family and neighborhood dealt with on a daily basis. It was at this moment Corey decided to trust God and in 2010 he started “Frontline Media Group”, a record label that creates and promotes music with a message of hope, positivity and a belief in something greater than the struggle Corey Paul’s first album, Grace Love Mercy, was released on July 30, 2013, with Frontline Movement.
