Fans can expect to hear some electronic, rock and synth pop nuances on the EP. As a singer and songwriter, she delivers fresh lyrical content that is rich and significant.

The Music…

Every music adventure must be experienced individually, however we will do our best to highlight some of the elements that touched us most from ‘Corinne Crimson’, the EP and the singer-songwriter. Check out our thoughts on Corinne’s latest project.

The first track on ‘Corinne Crimson’ is a song titled “Angel”; it is a sultry production with a spirited edge. As Corinne sings, “I’m not an angel, I can’t claim to be” fans get a glimpse into the unique world of Corinne who is beautiful, bold and completely honest. The song is gorgeously empowering and though it delivers subtle grooves, it is righteously inspiring.

The musician performs “Angel” with a soothing voice, draping it over the instrumentals which are equally as infectious as her vocals. Corinne’s vocals against the music score are placed in juxtaposition as the lyrical content contrasts her smooth vocal performance. Corinne Crimson offers fans a moving message that embraces strength and most importantly individuality. “Angel” is a formidable production that is incredibly fearless.

Corinne Crimson also delivers a pounding splash of hypnotic synths and dark rhythms on “Catch and Release”, an electronic production with playful melodies and enticing ambiance. Corinne Crimson beckons audiences with reflective lyrics, daring to ask all of the questions that many people can only imagine. Corinne croons,  “Catch and release while I’m reeling about”, telling a story that will resonate with fans. In regards to this line, Corinne Crimson shares that it, “is a reference to a heartbreaker reeling in women then throwing them out just for fun, similar to a fisherman that fishes for sport, catch and release, while the fish is reeling about trying to be free”.

The singer’s voice on “Catch and Release” is raw and emotional. Corinne performs with a great vocal range. The spirit that she conveys across the song is reminiscent to some of Lady Gaga’s earlier hits. It is evident that Corinne Crimson is unique, unafraid and using music to share some very deep experiences.

On the track “Honey Brown Skin”, Corinne Crimson takes a very eclectic approach. As she performs this song with lusty lyrics, her vocals breathe dreamily over the highly-synthesized electronic elements. The instrumentals on “Honey Brown Skin” are reminiscent to Madonna’s “Live to Tell” from her ‘True Blue’ album.

The song, which has a folksy vibe and some Rock influences, is a supreme anthem that bravely tackles taboo subject matter. Corinne Crimson, keeps it one-hundred and does so without any inhibitions. “Testosterone” is a powerful song that gives a voice and courage to women who just might be uncomfortable with taking a stance, speaking up and shedding antiquated gender roles.

Based in Hermosa Beach, CA, Corinne Crimson is known for her colorful fusion of music. Her style is a unique blending of influences that range from the lyrics of the 60s and 70s to the eclectic synth pop of the 80s. Corinne’s style also encompasses elements of the recent psychedelic rock and dance genres which are currently popular. According to the singer-songwriter, “the world’s a stage” and “the beach is better than any sound booth and the best beat is anything you can shake your booty too”.

As a musician, Corinne played in several different bands and cites inspirations such as Lady Gaga, Madonna, Gwen Stefani and Blondie to name a few. While she gains inspirations for these music icons, she is passionate about crafting a distinct sound experience for her fans.

Corinne Crimson’s recipe for creating her signature sound starts with a simple guitar track that is then layered into what the musician calls “an electronica extravaganza”. Her unique brand can be described as Electronic/Pop/Alternative/Dance which pays homage to the high-energy festival scene that is all too popular. The festivals are instrumental in helping Corinne determine how successful a song will be by how well she can hula hoop to it, she says. Corrine also produces her own music videos which you can check out using the links below.
