ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
- you are winter, summer and fall.. till my soul is a whisper, i’ll give you everything or anything at all -

- “Anything at All”

Corinne Gooden’s debut album, “All My Days” has been a labor of love, a look inward, a chapter closed, and a door opened. With the help of co-producer and engineer Benjamin Wilson, as well as other very talented musicians, bringing to life her once-guitar/vocal recordings has been an exciting step forward. These songs, which span what seems a life-time, are often very personal, dealing with love, loss, regret, hope, and the reckoning that comes with standing at a crossroads.

Born in Hendersonville, NC, in the middle of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, Corinne has always been blessed with the opportunity to pursue her everchanging dreams. Dancing since the age of three, she developed a love for performing early on. Constantly encouraged and supported by her parents, she naturally gravitated toward the theater, where her talent and love for singing really started to grow. Never content to sit still, she also played trumpet in the highschool jazz and symphonic bands, lead an all-girls a cappella group, and spent three nights a week taking and teaching dance classes. She wanted to find a way to focus her passions of dance, singing and acting into one, so she went to school, auditioned and was accepted into the Musical Theater Department at Florida state. Shortly after receiving her BFA degree, she moved to New York.

Since about the age of 13, Corinne had also developed a burning love for rock and roll music, her most impressionable years spent listening to artists like Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers, CCR, Fleetwood Mac, or James Taylor on her way to some adventure or another, and she had always dreamed of standing on stage performing her own songs, playing her own music, and telling her own stories. One day, while sitting in her tiny apartment in Astoria, NY, she sat down and wrote one, pouring her heart on the page about someone who had broken her heart. Barely able to play three chords on the guitar, it turned out fairly simple, but it was the turning point for her. It was a very cathartic way to deal with the pain of loss. She began taking a deeper interest in learning the guitar, and spent her time riding back and forth on the subway writing in her journal about life and how it affected her, and finally decided that becoming a songwriter was the path she ultimately wanted to take. Living in New York was a time of the highest highs and the lowest lows. It was a city that taught her to be tough, showed her the callousness and depth of the human spirit, but it also taught her a lot about herself and what she could be capable of.

She wanted to gain as much knowledge as possible about music and the process of creating it, so she decided to go back to school and learn about Audio Engineering. Being the only girl in her class, she was enrolled in the New York branch of SAE, and began to see just how vast the music business was. She was excited about the new knowledge and the independence she was gaining, but being alone, and much of the time surrounded by strangers, she decided that she wanted to be a little closer to home with the people she loved, free to follow her dreams in a more comfortable environment. She transferred to the Nashville branch midway through receiving her certificate.

She has lived in Nashville two years now, and has continued to pursue her dreams of performing. She plays frequently around Nashville and has started to branch out regionally. She has recorded some other artist’s work as well, and will always continue to explore engineering and producing, but her heart will always be behind the mic, pouring out her heart and soul through her voice and music.

Within her songs, she tries to keep an objective viewpoint of the relationships between the characters. There is no one side to anything in this world, and sometimes the journey to ultimately finding peace within ourselves is found with the finality of decision and acceptance, no matter what the outcome. Oftentimes we find ourselves in a situation, where we must look at where we’ve been in order to more clearly see the way forward, and that is where she is looking now...

Impressive Debut Album from an Outstanding Singer/Songwriter
“All My Days” is the impressive debut from folk singer/songwriter Corinne Gooden. Throughout the album, Gooden shows magnificent control of her voice and has an emotional inflection that heightens the personal sentiments in her writing. Her vocal performance is similar to contemporary female singer/songwriters like Paula Cole, Sarah McLachlan, and Bonnie Raitt. Gooden’s lyrics are very personal and honest, and she sings them with such conviction and melody that the listener becomes hooked and must know what she’ll sing about next. The musical arrangements are also quite good, highlighted by fantastic piano/organ progressions and beautiful acoustic guitar that skillfully back Gooden’s vocal performance. The recording quality of “All My Days” is excellent, so the vocals and arrangements are clean and crisp, leaving nothing to be desired. The title track, “All My Days,” is a slow, sad, and personal song with a piano and guitar accompaniment in which Gooden shows her tremendous vocal range. “Goodbye” is a more uptempo rock number about learning how to say goodbye to someone you don’t necessarily want to ever say goodbye to. Overall, “All My Days” is a superb debut from a talented singer/songwriter that knows how to write her feelings down and vocalize them. Fans of good folk lyricists and female vocalists should check out this excellent CD.

A Mesmerizing Debut
Strong lyrics, tight arrangements and powerful, unforgettable songs make \"All My Days\", the debut CD by Corinne Gooden one of the best indie/folk/rock releases of 2008. These are songs that really sneak up on you--simple, yet effective and alluring melodies that serve to reinforce the powerful, bitter truths of the masterfully written lyrics. Every cut is moving and executed with finesse. I often speak of defining moments in contemporary music, and this CD has one - the electric guitar solo on \"Come This Far\" which drives the song home, and the keyboard solo at the end that emphasizes the dispirited heartache of pushing a loved one away. This is pure, wistful eloquence that is both guileless and mesmerizing.

Another great song is \"17th Street\", a moving piece written about a man who lived on the corner of 17th Street and 5th Avenue in New York City. Said Corinne, about this song, \"I walked by him every day on my way to and from work, and although I never spoke to him, he became a regular fixture in my day. So sad, he literally lived on cardboard boxes on the corner, and in the cold winter months, he would wear plastic around his hands and feet. One day he wasn\'t there, and for about a week I wondered if he was going to come back. He did, for about another month, but then he was gone for good. It was an especially cold winter that year, and I figured that the shelter services found him dead, and had to take care of him. He really touched my heart, first of all because he was a survivor, but secondly because it really showed me how callous we as humans become to situations and people like that, how it just becomes a normal everyday thing. We stop noticing that there are people out there that need help, and there are people much worse off than you or me. The song just kind of came out as a reality check more than anything, and it serves as a reminder to me to stop and notice how good (and bad) life can really be, and to really love the people in my life, and love what life has given me............\"

Though the strength of this release is Corinne\'s evocative vocals, the instrumentation and production are equally strong. Some of the songs are bluesy-folk balladry, some are country or country/pop hybrid - all are outstanding. \"Goodbye\" is an amazing song capable of crossing over into the pop or country genres. \"You\'ve Got Me\" is an instantly memorable song with a country feel; catchy lyrics, stunning vocals and a great acoustic guitar/piano combination. The title song, \"All My Days\" is pure heartache. \"17th Street\" is a moving and reflective observation of people living on the fringes of society.

\"All My Days\" is an intriguing assortment of songs that are instantly engaging and unforgettable. This an intensely personal effort that includes several moving pieces that recall life, loss, hope and regret, and the bittersweet reminiscences of love and the reckoning that comes with standing at a crossroads. Better yet, the CD stands out thanks to a strong melodoic appeal owing to the strength of Corinne Gooden\'s emotional vocal delivery and first-rate songwriting.
