Biography

Corrinne May, (born Corrinne Foo May Ying; Chinese: 符美芸; pinyin: Fú Měiyún) is a Singaporean singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles. Born on January 19, 1973, she has been playing the piano since the age of 5, and is also proficient with the guitar.

Corrinne studied in Raffles Girls’ Primary School, Raffles Girls’ School (Secondary) and Raffles Junior College. She later majored in mass communications and English literature at the National University of Singapore. Corrinne left Singapore to further her music education at the Berklee College of Music, where she majored in songwriting and film scoring. In order to pursue her dreams in music, she moved to Los Angeles in 1999.

Corrinne co-wrote the song “If You Didn’t Love Me” with the legendary songwriters Carole King and Carole Bayer Sager as part of her winning entry in a songwriting competition on the music industry website Tonos.com. Carole King & Carole Bayer Sager wrote the lyric for the song and entertained submissions for the best musical accompaniment and melody. Corrinne’s version was the winner. The song is featured on Corrinne’s debut album. Corrinne has met Carole Bayer Sager but not Carole King.

Her song “Journey” was featured on the Taiwanese drama Dolphin Bay Lovers and was covered by popular Asian singers Angela Zhang and Gigi Leung.

In September 2004, Corrinne May became the first (and only) artist singing exclusively in English, to be signed by the record label Forward Music in Taiwan, which distributes her music to Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong and China.

    realmente eu não entendo como uma cantora com uma voz tão linda pode ter poucos plays .eu fico muito triste com isso porque tem muitos artistas desconhecidos que tem um talento incrível ótimas melodias e também ótimas produções dos álbuns . eu adoro muito essa cantora o mundo precisa conhecer Corrinne May : )

    crabsncancer: I totally agree with you. But if you dedicate just about every song to God and to praising everything around you, it doesn't leave much room for realistically and critically looking at yourself and humanity. Religion and psychology, the two don't get along..
