As a solo artist, a one man (well, woman) show, Cori has moved people with all the freedom allowed of someone who works vocals, piano and harmonica. And this singer-songwriter’s honest, emotionally charged, and often wrenching work has been affecting audiences big and small since she was a young girl. Corina Presutti got an early start in music as it was it was a big part of her family. A Connecticut native, she began classical training in piano at the Hartt School of Music in Hartford at the age of 4. At the end of elementary school, she learned flute. In middle school jazz and pop caught her attention. And by high school, she taught herself to play to the harmonica (under the influence of Billy Joel’s Piano Man), discovered her voice, and began writing her own music. “I’m proud that my voice is organic- I was never interested in sounding as though I was another mouth on a chorus riser. I’m happier not knowing how to do it ‘correctly’, because all of music is really an experimental process anyway. I guess in this case, ignorance is bliss- it has allowed me to maintain my own style. I can change it, bend it and control it the way I feel it should sound to express a certain emotion.”
After high school, Cori then attended Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY where she continued performing and during which she recorded her first project The Softest Skin (© 2005). She performed in Italy and Argentina in 2005 and 2006. Then in October of 2009 she released the 11 track acoustic project entitled Little Black Book (© 2009). She calls the project “a collection of chapters of years 1-24” in her story. “I love music and the effect it can have on people. It makes a world of difference on someone’s day and beyond, some people are just more in tune to that than others. It communicates between people who would have maybe never otherwise have said anything to each other. I’m grateful to be part of that.” Cori followed this up most recently, in April of 2011, with the digital release of a 4 track EP called From the Lips of Babes which is being re-released this fall with a handful of acoustic tracks off of Little Black Book. Recorded in Nashville at Sound Emporium Studios, it is 4 of her most popular tracks done with a full band backing her and a radio friendly pop production. “I love playing with groups and the energy and adrenaline that accompanies that experience is a one of a kind reality. The caliber of the studio musicians in a place aptly named ‘Music City’, magnifies that electricity several times over. It was really amazing to be a part of something so historically rich- playing in a room where Johnny Cash, Elvis Costello, and Bob Dylan had played…really just- in a word- awesome.” You can find this New Englander now based out of San Diego, California where she plans of becoming a fixture in the performing arts scene.
