Corey Dargel

coreyCorey Dargel (b. 1977), composer/lyricist of Fables on Global Warming, is a Texas-born composer and singer-songwriter whom the New York Times calls “one of the more original and consistently provocative artists pushing at the margins of modern classical music and adventurous pop” and whom Minnesota Public Radio describes as “a wonderfully difficult artist to define.” Dargel has shared the stage with artists ranging from Owen Pallett and Joanna Newsom to the Brooklyn Philharmonic, the string quartet ETHEL and the electric guitar quartet Dither. His latest commercial album is Someone Will Take Care of Me (2010, New Amsterdam Records). He’s on twitter @dargel and on the web at
