The Short Story
Korbe Canida is an indie folk/rock singer songwriter and musician from Phoenix, AZ. In January 2012, Korbe debuted her quirky, heartfelt and truth telling identity as a musician as a solo artist. With the support of her loyal following and fanbase who cheerfully crown themselves as the Korbe Canida “Lovelies”, Korbe successfully met the goals allocated for her Kickstarter campaign and was able to both jump start the release of her debut EP, The Siren and The Sailor, and set out on her first tour throughout the West Coast of America in February of 2015. Korbe has since pursued the development of her sound, playing various shows and festivals across the country, writing new well loved material, and acquiring a four-piece band to join her in her artistry on the road.
The Slightly Longer Story
Korbe Canida is an indie folk/rock singer-songwriter and musician from Phoenix, AZ. Korbe captivates through her emotionally exposed and relatable style. Though immersed in the arts from a young age with an ardent focus on acting and musical theater, it was during the bitter winter of 2010 spent attending The New York Conservatory for The Dramatic Arts that Korbe would realize her life was a much darker place without music. After many hours of unabashed begging and pleading, Korbe was given her first guitar by her Mother. From this moment on, her creative focus transitioned. By the 1st of January in 2012, Korbe played her first open mic in Phoenix. Impressible for both her and the audience at toe, she then returned to New York and vowed to play one open mic a week for the remainder of the year, establishing her quirky, heartfelt and truth telling identity as a musician.
With the support of her loyal following of fellow musicians, music lovers, and fanbase who cheerfully crown themselves as the Korbe Canida “Lovelies”, Korbe successfully met the goals allocated for her Kickstarter campaign and was able to not only jumpstart the release of her debut EP, The Siren and The Sailor, but managed to set out on her first tour throughout the West Coast of America. Since, Korbe has relentlessly pursued the development of her artistry, playing various shows across the country, attending renowned music conferences as a hand-selected attendee, writing new well-loved material and hitting her second tour. Recently Korbe was the sole winner out of 3500 artists to be offered a recording contract from Chesky Records out of NYC, only to turn it down in order to maintain artistic control of her career, and her song "I Can't Do This Alone" will be featured in the upcoming James Franco movie "Actors Anonymous". In keeping with the title of that song, Korbe now has a full band in order to compliment her powerful, soaring vocal style. With music now being Korbe’s full time pursuit and the acquisition of a four-piece band, she is excited for and open to new experiences as an artist through creative cultivating and collaborations.
