From the open meadows of California’s sierra mountains, Corinne West spins tales with a part velvet and part grit voice that is both achingly penetrating and highly addictive. Her music has a cool, layered, yet driven sound and has been referred to as “utterly spell-binding”, “radiant”, and “extraordinarily beautiful” by reviewers world-wide.
Her writing runs a golden thread through the likes of country, bluegrass, western, Americana and folk, resulting in a style that is hers alone. With the talents of Nina Gerber and some friends from The Waybacks, Corinne has concocted the perfect Americana recipe, which recently resulted in her acclaimed debut album “Bound For the Living”.
Corinne is currently working on her follow up record for “Bound For The Living”, which is being produced with Mike Marshall featuring Jerry Douglas, Tony Furtado, Mike himself and more!
When not in the studio, she is captivating audiences far and wide with a full touring schedule. She performs with her band The Posse, which is a rotating cast of talented instrumentalists.
Ms. West is forging her own contribution to Americana music, which fuses the distinct voice of an original singer-songwriter with the driving steam of an American Roots train. Combining a swingin’ pace with melodic ballads, Corinne delivers a soulful body of music that strikes the listener at the core.
"She burns the paint off the walls!"

"Hailing from California's North Sierras, Corinne West brought her own style of "mountain music" to our audience like a breath of fresh, cool air. Her strong and sincere delivery of intelligent and passionate songs kept our audiences spellbound and satisfied. With the increase lately in the popularity of old time and bluegrass music, it is delightful to here a songwriter and performer who, while paying homage to these roots, has created a very fresh sound of her own. Many of her songs feel like traditional chestnuts even when heard for the first time."
