Corinna Jane / Press

"Inside a dream, everything is perfect... Heartbeat Expansion is an exquisite universe of beauty, come float away…"

"Listen... Corinna's voice is super sultry and smooth. A magic you don't often come across. She's also super generous. I don't know many other singers that would give other vocalists such a big part in their song. Honour and a pleasure to sing with her. And the outcome is just beautiful. Congratulations to you dear Corinna Jane xx"

"When Corinna sent this song to me to review she told me that she was trying for an old-school, authentic live sound - a little bit gospel, a little bit Motown and without the over-production that we often get confronted with these days. She has succeeded. From the opening bars of the guitar, its apparent that what you are getting here is an honest live sound. Corinna’s vocals, as always, are spot on - soulful, powerful and with that slightly raw rock edge. It's an interesting contrast with the two back up singers, both talented singers in their own right, who each have a very different quality to their voices. Tracey Misso’s deep alto with its lovely chocolatey tones is deliciously smooth. Clare Luisa’s soaring high notes offer a great counterpoint... In terms of the band, these guys are rock solid. Kanvar Nayer on drums, Sheldon Jones on bass and Jon Cook on guitar and steel - they have nailed the groove here."

"Corinna Jane can sing, damn her! With her evocative and bluesy Dusty Springfield-esque tone and the song’s sixties style sound, she took me all the way to Memphis. All you need to hear is the opening chord on a hard-right mixed guitar followed by CJ’s seemingly effortless opening notes and there you are, on Beale Street, eating Gus’ fried chicken, BBQ and black-eyed peas, complaining about the humidity. To Love Somebody is the second single from Corinna’s upcoming album... Originally written by Barry and Robin Gibb in 1967 for Otis Redding, it’s not a wonder that this song evokes those soul feelings. While Corinna plainly owns this version of the song one can hear echoes of Nina Simone’s 1969 take on it too - Kanvar Nayer’s drum feel sounds a lot like a pre-Miles Don Alias."

"Think Janis Joplin, Nikki Lamborn and Melissa Etheridge all rolled into one magnificent package, and you are pretty close to Corinna Jane. Her vocals could bring grown men to their knees."

"It takes some moxie to cover a song as iconic as Billy Idol's White Wedding, but Corinna Jane is up to the task. She turns the snarling MTV rock of the original into a modern brooding epic. Her clear vocals smoulder with barely suppressed intensity before she cuts them loose near the end. Overall, it's an impressive interpretation and Jane puts her own stamp on this well known tune."

““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. It one of those slow burners. It starts off slow, almost seductive as if the song itself is beckoning you to listen. Once there it builds up into an almost Zeppelinesque rocker."”

"'The River Song' is a joint release from Nova and Corinna Jane. The introduction is stripped-down with a warm electric guitar and Corinna's powerful voice. The song alternately rises and falls with the melody increasing in pitch and urgency with effortless grace. There is a particularly impressive transition from the vocal to a short guitar solo before the song finally ends. An epic and beautiful song that is reminiscent of Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan - but rockier and edgier. 'Selfish' sees Nova pumping out a indie-rock track with vocal swapping and plenty of pace. This song has a nineties vibe, bright guitar based music with lots of skill and loads of hooks. These two songs are very different indeed, but both are brilliant."

"Very unique indeed, passionate music sounds like Janis Joplin crossed with an artist like Black Sabbath...Great stuff!"

"I honestly think if you came to US, you would clean house on American Idol and dominate. There are not too many people that can sing the way you can. Your bio is accurate, and Janis does come to mind, and Janis was probably the best female vocalist ever, keep up the great work Corinna!" - Kyle, admin for Concrete Injection

"Corinna Jane was from the moment I first saw her sing live, the best female Rock Singer I have ever heard" Eleyan Di Palma (HITJ)

“An album of changing moods, which takes the listener on a journey... From a hauntingly melodic start, through boppy and poppy to punk rock, each track has its own distinctive and individual flavour. Corinna Jane's voice is smooth as silk, with a wide range, suited to her obvious blues and soul influences. At times, I had goose pimples listening to her voice. There's a bit of Janis Joplin, as well as Tina Turner. Quiet passages, followed by loud, speak of a great potential for a gripping live performance. I really would like to listen to this kind of stuff in a grungy cellar bar. At no point does her voice sound strained, and the band is always under perfect control. No showing off. Clever, disciplined musicianship at those times so many modern "musicians" tend to get silly, and push themselves beyond their capabilities. Corinna Jane and her band obviously enjoy the music they make, and so do I.”

"Vocalist Corinna Jane is 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 a lot of modern music."

"Corinna Jane is the female Robert Plant."

““Man can she sing. Vocals made me hot. Some men think they’re the only ones that can do that. Boy, are they in for one hell of a surprise."”

"If I were to have to pick a standout track from the mob, then this is the one that captures my attention and holds it, first Corinna Jane's vocals do this magic thing where they draw you in and make you listen - I'm not talking about an onslaught or anything like that, for here it is a thing of beauty. I like the fact that the song builds, there's a story being told - you're taken to a place where the guitars kick in rather nicely (did I mention that I am into guitar driven rock?). There's a poetic kind of thing going on here that I just can't say no to - I'll definitely be listening to this song again more than just as a token thing."

"What a voice! I think it is just my taste and may not be a universal truth (I'm really torn on this point) but I think on the more intense sections the singer should be on top just a little more. OK. I realize how that could sound and maybe I mean that too. It's a voice I could fall in love with. Sexy sexy lady. She can sing to me any time."
