Cloudbelly is a collaboration between singer-songwriter Corey Laitman and producer Anand Nayak.
They met by chance one evening when they were separately on the bill at Luthier’s Coop in Easthampton, MA. They had a magnetic response to each other’s music and vibe and were soon working together on Corey’s 2018 release Seafoam. Plans, recordings, and momentum were building towards what looked like a breakout year but 2020 had other plans. Once it became clear* the world will continue to spin, they returned to the work they began in 2019 and decided to name their collaboration Cloudbelly, after a bird-friend they had known.
