Vocalist Corina Corina was born to sing. She was raised in Oakland by political activists who named her after an early blues classic. Now with roots in New York and the Bay Area, Corina Corina brings a fresh and melodic vocal hybrid to modern soul with a sharp hip-hop edge. She first cut her teeth in the New York independent music scene by collaborating with artists such as Homeboy Sandman (Stones Throw), Angi3 (Tommy Boy), and internationally-acclaimed producer, Willie Green (Backwoodz Studioz). She has shared stages with hip-hop heavyweights Talib Kweli, Action Bronson, Masta Ace and Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire. Corina Corina’s self-released solo albums, “The Eargasm” (2012), and “The Free Way” (2014) were co-produced with Green, and touch on everything from gender inequality to self-love and resisting social norms. The latter was promoted extensively through a series of independently booked national tours, a successfully funded indie-go go campaign and nearly a half dozen music videos. She’s also released two EPs, and has produced and curated dozens of live events and musical series all over the country.
Corina Corina signed to Deep Thinka Booking Agency in 2014, enabling her to spend the better part of two years touring nationally and connecting with her fans. She has been a fixture at South by Southwest and North by Northwest music festivals multiple times. In addition to her prolific touring, Corina Corina has spread her message as a contributor for popular lifestyle blogs such as like Elephant Journal and Recovery Warriors. She also performs in the acoustic blues/folk duo, Max Caddy with singer-songwrtiter Jesse O’Neill. Their 2013 debut EP, “Caddy Tracks,” garnered roaring praise from fans and music journalists across the board.
Corina Corina fans are looking forward to a mixtape tribute to Run the Jewels, set to be released in 2016. Her third full length LP, “Hangover Music” is set for a 2017 release.
