Ep 351: Corina Corina Interview - Soul with a Strong Hip Hop Edge

"Basically I'm a hip hop kid who grew up on the blues." - Corina Corina

Vocalist Corina Corina was born in Oakland, CA, and is the eldest child of two political activists who were inspired to name her after the classic blues song. Now Bi-coastal with roots in NYC and the SF Bay Area, Corina Corina brings a fresh and melodic vocal hybrid to modern electronic R&B with a strong hip hop edge. She first gained recognition in the New York independent music scene by collaborating with artists like Homeboy Sandman (Stones Throw), Angi3 (Tommy Boy), and internationally-acclaimed producer, Willie Green (Backwoodz Studioz), as well as sharing stages with hip hop heavyweights Talib Kweli, Action Bronson and Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire. Both of her 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.

Between 2013-2015, Corina Corina has expanded her fan base by embarking on 8 self- booked national tours, following being featured in multiple showcases at South by Southwest and Canada’s North by Northwest. In addition to her tours, she also found time to release two EPs and produce and curate dozens of live events in New York City and all over the country. Corina also performs in the acoustic blues duo Max Caddy, whose 2013 debut EP, "Caddy Tracks,” garnered praise from fans and music journalists alike.

In late 2013, Corina Corina topped off her monumental year by launching a successfully funded IndieGoGo campaign to help complete, “The Free Way.” which she calls "the best work she's ever done to date.”

In 2014, Corina Corina signed with the Deep Thinka Booking Agency and expands her fan base by spending over half the year touring nationally. This past summer, she has begun her third full length LP, “Hangover Music” which will be written and produced entirely by she and Willie Green and will be released in 2016.
