COR­RINNE MAY

“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.
