The great English writer Gilbert Chesterton once wrote: “If seeds in the black earth can turn into such beautiful roses, what might not the heart of man become in its long journey toward the stars?”
That philosophy of hope, of looking beyond the surface, and seeking a deeper beauty and meaning to the everyday moments of life has always driven and inspired singer-songwriter CORRINNE MAY. In her songs, the scars sustained through life’s challenges become the fertile soil in which the seeds of hope are sown.
With 5 albums to her name, 2 of which have been certified platinum in her native Singapore, Corrinne is one of Singapore’s most celebrated singer-songwriters. Currently based in Los Angeles, she enjoys being a global troubadour, playing residencies in LA in venues such as The Mint, Molly Malones,Witzend and Genghis Cohen, and selling out concerts in Singapore. Her music has also found its way to audiences in Japan, Korea and the Philippines, where her music is being distributed by Warner Music.
Her latest record ‘Crooked Lines’ was inspired by her newfound vocation : Motherhood.
“It’s in the eyes of a child as you hold her in your arms and your heart starts to beat once again, and the world is reborn in the beauty of her song… smile, it’s a beautiful life.” she sings in the song “Beautiful Life”.
“I love being a mother. It’s humbling, it’s grandiose, it’s scary, it’s exhilarating, it’s peaceful, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done in my life” Corrinne enthuses. “There is so much beauty to sing of, when you look at the world through the eyes of a child.”
Corrinne May travels the world for her music, frequently jetting between her two homes of Singapore and Los Angeles, with her musician husband, Kavin, and 4-year old daughter, Claire.
“One walks out of a Corrinne May show with the idea that, no matter what kind of trouble you are in,
things will always get better if you have faith, friends and family.”
(Eddino Abdul Hadi, Straits Times Singapore)
“Corrinne’s voice is beautiful and pure but even more, it is comforting and friendly. The listener feels like they are with an old friend.”
