This stylish singer/songwriter is set to release her new single, “When I Fall Down”, off of her upcoming 2nd EP produced by CJ Eiriksson (U2, Matchbox 20, Blue October, Incubus, Hoobastank).

Over the past few years Korva has worked with Todd Kerns (Static In Stereo, Age Of Electric), Jim Huff (Edwin, Headstones), Guy Walker (Backstreet Boys), Mike K, Michael Raphael (NEVE), Chin Injetti (Snow, Moka Only), Mark Olexson (Matthew Good, 54-40), Dean Truitt (Color), Curt Cuomo (KISS, Eddie Money, John Corabi), Kelly Moneymaker (Expose, Days Of Our Lives), Murray Daigle, Robert Laidlaw, Murray Yates (Forty Foot Echo), Jason Rowe, Craig Zurba, Derek Schram, Trevor Forbes, Ron Irwin, Kirk Fotakis, Gary Slayton, Sean Kelly (Crash Kelly) and MOBILE.

Although Sabrina is greatly influenced by classic rockers Aerosmith, Rolling Stones, Queen, Heart, Fleetwood Mac and Guns n Roses, she studied classical piano (and some jazz) for 10 years at The Royal Conservatory Of Music. With determination Korva also juggled high school, figure skating, ballet, voice lessons, flute, bass and guitar. Recently graduating from BCIT’s Radio Broadcasting program, working on air and in production at Evolution 107.9 FM and performing at festivals like Canadian Music Week and North By Northeast, Sabrina has knowledge and experience well beyond her years.

Sabrina wrote “When I Fall Down” with Pop music veteran Kelly Moneymaker (formerly of Exposé). “We sat down and literally hammered out the entire song within an hour. It was magic.”

A regular performer at CrueFest in Hollywood at the Whisky A-Go-Go, Sabrina Korva has played venues throughout North America, from Kentucky to Nashville, Hawaii to Hollywood and all across Canada.

“When I Fall Down” has recently been added to rotation on 103.5 QM/FM in Vancouver, BC. –Vancouver’s number one music station! The single is soon to be released Canada-wide.

Korva's songwriting style has progressed over the years. "I started out writing pop in my teens, then I got into classic rock and wrote a lot of punky rock songs, and of course went through a metal writing phase," says Korva "now I'm writing a lot of pop/rock again. My style has always been influenced by writers I've worked with and whatever music I'm listening to at the time, so now it's just a mix, and I'm more versatile. I love writing, music and melodies especially."

A regular performer at CrueFest in Hollywood at the Whisky A-Go-Go, Korva has played venues throughout North America, from Kentucky to Nashville to Sunset Strip in Hollywood and back to Vancouver and Toronto.
