An integral part of being an artist is taking risks. Being vulnerable. Going into the unknown. koralee has mastered these concepts. Her unconventional lifestyle (two pieces of red luggage, Star Alliance Gold Status, no fixed address) fits right in with her artistic reality – she relentlessly pursues creation.
A voracious autodidact, her past projects have found her in the role of performer, as well as songwriter, composer, writer and producer. She has written, produced and performed in plays, radio dramas, short films and television programs that have appeared across North America and the World. koralee has produced live music performances in Vancouver, her hometown of Winnipeg and in Los Angeles.
For the release of her upcoming single, koralee spearheaded a relationship with Atlanta-based Producer, Music Director and Multi-Instrumentalist Morris (‘Mo’) Pleasure (Ray Charles, Earth, Wind and Fire, Michael Jackson). The result is the 2013 version of ‘Sister’, which koralee originally recorded with Eliot Sloan (Blessid Union of Souls) in 2008 and released on her self-titled EP in 2010. Recorded in Atlanta, GA in October of 2012, 'Sister' will be released along with a video produced by koralee and LA-based Year Eight productions in April. Both the song and video artfully showcase the evocative quality of her vocals and strong presence, telling an incredibly personal story with graceful poignancy.
‘(My) immediate reaction was that I was hearing solo voice of a quality I hadn't heard before.’
-Morris “Mo” Pleasure, Producer and Multi Instrumentalist
In addition to her solo project, koralee has entered a world of collaboration that is taking her into new genres, a testament to her vocal versatility. Working with Music Producer and Grammy Nominated Filmmaker David Brownstein has resulted in a yet-unnamed but ever-growing pop creation that began with her unpredictable cover of Iggy and The Stooges "Search and Destroy" and has morphed into a soon-to-be released EP of original songs that make the DJ’s want to remix and the young girls want to cry. koralee is also featured vocalist in a cross-continental Electro House project lead by Los Angeles DJ and Producer Glenn Weikert (HIEROPHUNK, 7StarSun) and Dutch Producer Joris Vincken (DJ Sammy’s ‘Heaven’).
koralee will continue to work with Mo and other collaborators throughout 2013, releasing all songs through her website: www.koraleemusic.com.
‘koralee is not just an artist. She is an experience.’
