Corey "Cobalt" Williams
He was born February 24, 1981, an only child to his mother in Pensacola Florida. He spent his early childhood years in Bradenton, Florida. As an only child, he had lots of time to day dream, think, imagine, and create. His life of performing and expressing words started with music. At age 10, he and his mother left the familiar comforts of Bradenton Florida and headed for new surroundings of Atlanta, Georgia. It was here that he was introduced to pivotal friends and sounds of music that gave my writing direction. Influenced heavily by Hip Hop such as Outkast and Goodie Mob, he expanded my writing from poetry to hip hop. The sound of Atlanta music Scene would broaden his love for words and originality. He could appreciate the infusion of the instrumentals behind the vocals. expressing my poetic talent in World renowned poetry houses such as Apache Cafe, Q's House of Poetry, and Java Monkey, and most importantly becoming a respected Artist in the Atlanta Entertainment Community. The respect of his peers came not just for the love of the arts, rather than his contribution to others. Years later around the age of 18, he would take an acting workshop by Dwayne Boyd that would ultimately change the course of his future. Landing gigs in "ATL" the movie, stage plays in the presence of Robert Townsend, performing on TV shows such as Tommy Ford's The Artist Talent League- Episode 1, acting emerged in his life. He would find a passion for acting that would lead him to further teaching from Dwayne Boyd, Victor Love, and Greg Alan Williams. He has since had the privilege to act in various theater projects, films, web series, and commercials. He has learned that his gift is meant for others, and his purpose in life is to lift the world, the hurt, the fallen, and those who are lost. He now sees that an Artist only becomes great from the lives that he touches, the hearts that he mends, and the purpose of his voice.
