TINSEL KOREY  is a Canadian singer-songwriter and well known actor.

In 2004, while shooting Spielberg’s TNT mini-series “Into the West,” she composed a song of the same title that became an underground hit. The song eventually caught the attention of actor/producer Jennifer Podemski (Dance me Outside, The Rez) who invited Korey to perform it on the 2008 Aboriginal Achievement Awards. That year she traveled throughout the southwest performing her songs in various venues.

In 2009 Tinsel landed the coveted role of Emily in the mega blockbuster The Twilight Saga. Korey beat out 800 other actress for the role of a lifetime – playing Sam Uley’s fiancée and soul mate. The attention from the role brought her to a new level of stardom. Her cover of Robert Pattinson’s song “Never Think” appeared on YouTube where the video received over 150,000 hits. The spark in Tinsel’s music was starting to bubble, and the artist knew is was time to turn her focus to music.

Well known guitarist/producer Stevie Salas had met Korey in Winnipeg, Canada while she was shooting the film Hybrid. Salas invited Tinsel to perform some songs on his music variety show Arbor Live. She chose to perform her song “Letter” where Stevie & Marcos Curiel (from the band PayableOnDeath) played along side her.

In November 2010 Tinsel decided to record “Letter” as her first single and brought on Salas as the Producer. Stevie brought in the best of the best to play on the song. Marcos Curiel, Mark Schulman, Shea Chambers & Dan Rothchild all lent their musical talents to make the song come to life. The single is now available on iTunes Worldwide & Amazon.

She now makes her home in Los Angeles, California.
