STRIKE A CHORD
Four local music acts on the changing landscape of music and what it takes to stay pitch perfect . By Gerald Tan and Dana Koh.
“Ethereal”, “uplifting” and “patriotic” are how many describe the songs of Corrinne May, one of Singapore’s multi-platinum singersongwriters. After five albums and performances around the region and L.A., her base of 15 years, May is now nurturing budding talents as part of the songwriting faculty of the Berklee College of Music online, where she graduated magna cum laude in 1998. A shift away from the folk-leaning genre of her earlier presentations, her upcoming album embraces a more mellowed, acoustic feel; with life-inspired lyrics on love and spirituality.
