Welcome to another edition of PoPolitickin. In this episode, we politick with NYC/Oakland emo soul vocalist Corina Corina.
Corina Corina was born in Oakland, CA and is the eldest child of political activists. Named after a classic Blues song, it seems her career path in music was set early on. Now with roots in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area, Corina Corina brings a fresh and seamless synergy between 90s-style r&b, dark pop, lyrically driven hip hop and the blues and soul music she grew up on.
Known by many as one of the hardest working women in the indie music scene, she’s spent years touring extensively through the USA and has performed in multiple showcases at South by Southwest in Austin and North by Northwest in Toronto.
In early 2017, Corina Corina released a mixtape tribute to Run the Jewels entitled “Run the Blues” and is putting the final touches on her third full length LP, “Hangover Music.” The album written and produced entirely by herself and Willie Green and is a reflective and hard honest look at her relationship with alcohol and her version of adulthood. Through a range of styles and moods, she has created her strongest work yet.
