Multidisciplinary artist Corrina Keeling creates music that paints vivid pictures and tells stories rich with honesty, experience and insight. Her music carries the spirit of her passion for justice and kindness, and her lyrics speak with poetic maturity to the universal stories of our human family, calling us all to deep reflection, authenticity, courage and compassion. Informed by an era of socially conscious storytellers like Joni Mitchell & CSNY, she is a sophisticated songwriter and a technically accomplished rhythmic powerhouse, using music as medicine for complex times. Her live performances are sacred containers for her audiences to celebrate, grieve, heal, and imagine what’s possible. From David Suzuki's ‘Blue Dot’ Tour at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver, to festivals in Australia, the USA, and the UK, she has had the pleasure and privilege of making music around the world while sharing the stage with artists aligned with her message, including Feist, Ta'Kaiya Blaney, The Barenaked Ladies, Buckman Coe, Trevor Hall, Hey Ocean, Tonye Aganaba, Nahko Bear, and Neil Young.
Since independently releasing her album "Say Yes" in 2014, Corrina survived a catastrophic car wreck caused by a storm on a remote mountain highway. In moving through her ongoing process of rehabilitation, she has witnessed a renewed commitment to music in service of healing and change, and her creative work is emerging as a deep & powerful voice of the feminine. Anything but ordinary folk, her sophisticated rhythms are rooted and driving, and are complimented with rich and mystical musical contributions from her queer, femme, and cultural community, including unique and intuitive harmonies from her sister Jessica Dawn. Whether at a concert, a conference, or a campfire, her performances are alive with gratitude and presence, and are always vulnerable, participatory, and deeply passionate experiences.
Based in Vancouver, BC, she is deeply grateful to the səlil̓wətaʔɬ, xʷməθkʷəy̓əm & Sḵwx̱wú7mesh people for allowing her to do what she loves most on their ancestral territory, and is humbled & happy to call this place home.
