Corina Corina Soul Artist

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 Brooklyn-based, she brings a fresh and melodic vocal hybrid to hip hop and modern R&B.  Corina gained recognition in the New York independent music scene by collaborating with artists like Homeboy Sandman (Stones Throw), Angi3 (Tommy Boy), Jesse Abraham (Fat Beats) 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.  Her debut solo album, “The Eargasm” (2012), which she co-produced with Green, touches on everything from gender inequality to self-love and resisting social norms; this loud and proud bi-sexual woman holds nothing back.
In 2013, Corina Corina expanded her fanbase by embarking on two national tours, which included stops in dozens of U.S. cities, following being featured in two showcases at South by Southwest. In addition to her tours, she also found time to release “Come Again: The Eargasm Extended,” a six-track EP featuring remixes and extended tracks from her debut effort, "The Eargasm." Corina also performs in the acoustic blues duo Max Caddy, whose 2013 debut EP, "Caddy Tracks,” garnered praise from fans and music journalists.
Corina Corina topped off her monumental year by launching a successfully funded IndieGoGo campaign to help complete, “The Free Way.” She's eager to share what she calls "the best work she's ever done" with fans across the country in 2014.
Max Caddy has the blues, but that's good news for you. The New York acoustic duo features the soaring soulful vocals of Corina Corina and Jesse O'Neill's licking finger picking guitar. They can be found all over Manhattan and Brooklyn making new friends and entertaining old ones both day and night. Max Caddy mixes up their rhythm blues, soul, and folk influences and strips it down naked, and makes it gangsta. From the Bay to the Hudson, Corina and Jesse have wide range of performing background and experiences, and the duo came together to chart new ground while drawing from the roots music that gets them up in the morning.
