Born in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, Corinne has always been blessed with the opportunity to pursue her dreams. Early on she developed a love of rock and roll, and immediately found a deep connection to bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and The Allman Brothers.

She also became heavily influenced by the writing and voices of artists such as Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Patty Griffin, and they in turn helped shape her as a person and a singer. It wasn’t long before Corinne started dreaming of standing on stage playing her own songs and telling her own stories.

Still fairly new at playing the guitar, she wanted to share her experiences, and out of her earliest writing, came her debut album All My Days.

Co-producing and recording much of the music in a small bedroom, with the help of some very talented friends and musicians, All My Days came together organically, and flows from cello-rich orchestration, electric guitar and organ heavy rock, to piano driven ballads.

Bringing to life twelve of her acoustic/vocal recordings was a labor of love, a chapter closed, a door opened, and an exciting step forward. In many ways, the album serves as a snapshot into Corinne's life, and at times is very personal, dealing with love, loss, regret, hope, and acceptance.

Corinne plays regularly around Charleston, most notably in Palmetto Soul - a local party/wedding band. She also does demo recording for other artists, works as an engineer and producer, and finds great joy in teaching voice, guitar and piano lessons.

How To Become The Pro Musician You Want To Be In The Music Biz

Ready to find out what it takes to get into the music industry and achieve things like Corinne has done?

People trying to get into music usually want to understand how to:

- Become a well-known musician

- Quit your mediocre day job and do music instead

- Get the most sought-after gigs

- Join popular musical groups

- Never have to worry about finances ever again

Thing is:

Every musician would like to know these things, but very little people try to figure out what thoughts, ideas and decisions stop you from becoming the ideal individual to do them!

When you don't have this kind of understanding, it becomes very tricky to make it in this world.

Below are several things to stay away from in order to make developing a music career feel less challenging:
  • Don't seek out music career development insight from those who never did much themselves or can offer confirmation that they have made it for themselves.
  • Don't attend college for music education unless it is completely% necessary for your particular musical goals.
  • Don't overlook the value of cultivating a local following of fans as well as building a fanbase on the internet.
  • Don't gamble on guesswork to guide the success of your career.
  • Dont believe that being in the music business is full of risk. It's actually very reliable when you understand how to do it.

Establishing a music career completely by yourself is the #1 way to add risk and doubt into your music career. The far better approach is to work together with a music career mentor.

What is so good about finding someone like this?

This gives you the specialized experience, training and guidance of somebody who has already acquired whatever you wanted to in this industry.

Having this level of expertise at your disposal gives you the strength to do the things you want in your career without all the guessing.

In addition:

Learning with a mentor helps you recognize exactly what you need to do, say and have to become the best person in the music industry for the largest opportunities.

This ensures that you keep motivated every step of the way until you accomplish your musical goals.

Learn the proven steps for getting into the music business.
