Corky Hale (Pianist, Harpist and Vocalist) was born in a small mid-western farm town and started taking piano lessons at age three.  At age seven, while vacationing with her family in Florida, Hale was heard in the lobby of her hotel picking out tunes on the piano by House bandleader, Horace Heidt.  Heidt had a little band jacket made for her and featured her for the next few weeks in the evening show.  She began studying piano at Chicago Conservatory at the age of seven, and harp at the age of eight.

She has performed at The White House with Tony Bennett, soloed with Barbra Streisand in Central Park and at the Hollywood Bowl, and performed with Björk on her MTV Special in London.  Hale has also appeared with George Michael at London’s Royal Albert Hall and Washington, D.C.’s RFK Stadium.  She has played harp for Liberace (on his television show and at Madison Square Garden) and Judy Collins, piano for Billie Holiday, Mel Tormé and Peggy Lee, and sung with the bands of
Harry James, Ray Anthony and Jerry Gray.
