Fourth generation Californian Corinne West has been described as "the Siren of the Sierras" by a columnist from the San Francisco area Times-Herald; and for good reason. Corinne's powerful and eloquent voice, coupled with her powerfully crafted songs, has earned her a unique identity within the global acoustic roots music scene. Noted by Relix Magazine for her "voice of gold", her singing is at once like honey, smoke and sage. Bob Harris of BBC radio stated "I love Corinne's music and truly believe in her as an artist. She has spirit, integrity and talent. I am a massive fan."
Corinne's sound is informed by the nomadic and varied roads she has traveled. At 15, she left home with guitar in hand to travel across America in a converted school bus; she sang in hard rock bands in Los Angeles when she was a teenager, studied theatre in her mid-twenties, restored antique bi-plane wings, worked as a stone mason in the rural mountains of California, and opened a fine art business in fused-glass and metal with a blacksmith in the High Sierra mountains, to name a few. Though compelled by many art forms, she decided that music was the only medium she couldn't walk away from, and so she turned completely to it.
She has a thick touring history including the most prestigious festivals and clubs in the US and internationally.
Corinne is currently touring with her newly formed band featuring Pam Delgado and Jeri Jones; founding members of the San Francisco-based Indie Americana band Blame Sally. Blame Sally became an explosive phenomena, and toured extensively in North America and Europe. Robust, sensual, and alluring harmonies weave between Corinne, Pam and Jeri.
