Corinna Jane is a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist. She hails from Melbourne, Australia's music capital. Corinna is known for her explosive vocal power, sensual timbre and singular vocal range. Influenced by the likes of Aretha Franklin, Renee Geyer, Janis Joplin and Minnie Riperton, she has been described as “the female Robert Plant” and her style as one of “effortless beauty”. Her most recent release is a collaboration with Nu-Disco artist, Mark Lower. The Chase EP entered the Beatport Chill Out charts at number 17 and climbed steadily, with over 40,000 listens on Soundcloud in the first month. The standout song, The Chase, is currently sitting at number 2 in Original Chill Out tracks.
Corinna honed her skills by performing soul hits by the likes of Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, James Brown and Etta James for over a decade in cover bands. Some of Corinna's achievements to date include singing live on MTV as part of the Yamaha Rock '91 competition, singing onstage with the wicked Wilson Pickett, and providing vocals for Australian politician Joan Kirner at the Athaeneum Theatre.
Corinna's debut album is due to be released later this year. The first single from the album, a starkly different version of the classic 80s rocker, White Wedding, was a surprise hit on iTunes.
In addition, Corinna self-released a CD single of recordings with the rock band Nova. The recording was compared favourably to the Beatles and Corinna's vocal work on the featured track, The River Song, described as "simply amazing. Her voice goes from a smoldering, seductive purr to a stunning high as the song crescendos to a close. She has the ability to inject an emotion, a soul into her voice that is seriously lacking in a lot of modern music."
Corinna is relatively new to the dance scene, having self-produced and released her original composition Heartbeat Expansion through iTunes in 2014. Reminiscent of Massive Attack, this trip-hop number has been described as "an exquisite universe of beauty, come float away".
Corinna is currently in the process of finalizing more recordings with several European-based producers, in a variety of genres. Expect some exciting new releases in the very near future!
Some of Corinna's previous bands include:
Bull In A China Shop - indie rock
Magic Circle Club (finalists Yamaha Rock '94) - dance
As-U-Do - funk and jazz
The Dormice - thrash
Too Hot To Handle - soul
NOTE FROM CORINNA:
I am a professional singer and am very sensitive to sound quality. Therefore, if we choose to work together, I will first make rough demos at home with a MiniDisc recorder until we are both satisfied about the direction taken. I will then track final vocals in an excellent local studio with Neumann microphones. It is important to me to get the best possible representation of my voice. I tend to work very fast. I will be happy to supply high quality raw vocal files from the studio sessions. If I have made a bid on your project, it is because I have looked closely at your material and am very confident about my ability to contribute something great. I look forward to hearing from you.
