Corinna Jane is an Australian singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist. After many years in the rock and soul fields, Corinna is now finding success through the dance scene, with Deep House, Nu Disco and Chill Out tracks coming to the attention of the public. Corinna is well known for her explosive vocal power, sensual timbre and singular vocal range. Influenced by the likes of Aretha Franklin, Renee Geyer, Janis Joplin and Minnie Riperton, she has been described as “the female Robert Plant” and her style as one of “effortless beauty”.
In 2014, Corinna self-released the evocative and dreamy Trip Hop single Heartbeat Expansion. One reviewer called this song "an exquisite universe of beauty, come float away..." The track was featured on the TV series Famous In Love, and caused Corinna to become inundated with requests for collaborations from overseas-based EDM producers.
The very first collaboration to come out was The Chase, a two-track EP with Mark Lower of France. Released through Spirit Soul Records in 2016, it reached #2 on Beatport's Chill Out charts, with placement on two of Spotify's in-house playlists.
In this year, Corinna's vocals also featured in two movies, Stage Left and Au Revoir, and one of her compositions was published in a choir songbook.
2018 proved to be another big year for this artist, as her collaboration with the U.K.'s Passionardor resulted in a hit on the Aussie iTunes Dance charts. Love Getaway (Escape), was released through Chicago To London, and raced up the charts to nab the #13 spot.
Corinna Jane's debut album is planned for release in 2023. A preliminary single from the album was released in 2014, a starkly different version of the classic 80s rock song, White Wedding. One admiring fan described the song on iTunes as the best version of the song they'd ever heard. This track was followed up by the classic To Love Somebody, with soulful guest vocalists Clare Luisa and Tracy McDonald taking turns to ad-lib with Corinna.
Corinna Jane is also the lead vocalist and one of the main songwriters of Liminal.
Liminal fuses rock and soul in a dynamic style that is intense and compelling. The group previously operated as a traditional four-piece band for a decade, with four main lineups during this period, but since morphed into a vehicle for Corinna's rock material, as she collaborates with exceptional local musicians and songwriters.
Liminal's original CD recordings are currently being released in digital formats, and include works such as Galaxy, Shadowed and the award-winning Single Female Wanted. A newer work, Liminal's debut EP, Megafauna, was released in September of 2020. Recorded at Newmarket Studios, it features musicians Jon Cooke on guitar, Sheldon Jones on bass, Al 'The Mallet' Murphy (of Black Pony Express and Howling Mountain) on drums, and Kanvar Nayer on percussion. Megafauna has amassed 70K plays on Spotify to date, with placements on over 280 playlists, all through word of mouth rather than paid promotion. A review of the 4-track noted that it "... harks back to an age where rock was the apex predator... Megafauna is big."
In 2010, Corinna self-released a two-track CD with Geelong-based rock band Nova, including award-winning songwriter Scott Roy. The recording was compared favourably to the Beatles, with reviewer Paddy of Only Australian Music stating, "The River Song was originally recorded back in 2000. It has sat idle, unreleased and seldom heard until now. As far as I am concerned that was the greatest misjudgment since Decca Records turned down the Beatles in 1962. This song is pure gold." Paddy went on to describe Corinna's vocal work as "simply amazing... Her voice goes from a smoldering, seductive purr to a stunning high as the song crescendos to a close. She has the ability to inject an emotion, a soul into her voice that is seriously lacking in a lot of modern music."
Corinna's adventures in music continue....

Magic Circle Club (finalists Yamaha Rock '91) - indie dance - performed live on MTV with originals Sad Wine and Because I Love
