ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Progressive alt country folk

Second Sight hits critical acclaim!

Corinne West has a rare gift—she sings as eloquently and powerfully as she writes. Her new album, Second Sight, showcases a singer and songwriter hitting her creative
stride.

She recorded the album, which releases October 23, 2007 with producer Mike Marshall, known for his work with DavidGrisman, Mark O’Connor, Bela Fleck, and Edgar Meyer.
West’s collaboration with an outside producer (she self-produced her critically acclaimed debut, Bound for the Living) kicked open the creative floodgates.

“Mike was brilliant and easy to work with,” says Corinne. “He was so focused on making sure we served the songs well. It took the recording process to a whole new level.” That included bringing in the world-class talent of Jerry Douglas, Darol Anger and Tony Furtado to join Marshall in fleshing out West’s potent songs.

The secret weapon turned out to be West’s incredibly emotive voice. It leaves an indelible stamp on the heart as it twines through her subtle yet sophisticated songs. Few songwriters deliver both the artistic integrity and popular commercial appeal that are hallmarks of West’s music. It’s a one-two punch that solidified her reputation as one of the most successful songwriters to emerge on the Americana scene in the past few years.

Corinne has toured relentlessly, building her reputation the most authentic way—one fan at a time. On her travels, she's also won such top honors as finalist in the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival songwriting contest. That launched her onto the national festival circuit and helped kick her touring schedule into overdrive, including a tour of England and Ireland in early 2007.

Her overseas tour became possible when BBC legend Bob Harris began featuring her on his radio show. Fans across the ocean fell in love with West’s eclectic mix of folk, rock, bluegrass and Americana. The tour was so successful that she’s headed back for a return engagement in early 2008.

The emotional power, raw soulfulness, and understated beauty of Corinne West’s music has her on the brink of stardom. It’s a rare gift to witness the birth of an important new creative force in American music, but that’s what you’ll discover with Second Sight. It’s essential listening for anyone who keeps an ear on the pulse of great music.

Bound for the Living was my album of last year when I first heard it on UK radio. I wouldn't want to laden Corinne's music with a label. It is different and stands out in the american folk category. All I know this is wonderful music - simply, well written songs performed with soul and exquisite muscianship.
Second sight is not more of the same but it is still class.
If you are deliberating of which one to listen to first. Don't. Buy both. And then see her live, which is a real treat.

Grammy Worthy
I can't decide which song on this cd is my favorite. They are all great. I've been looking forward to a new cd from Corinne for awhile and this one was worth the wait! Is this CD worthy of Grammy consideration...Hell Yes!!

William Hunter

Second Sight
Corinne West has become a favorite. Love her voice. Love her lyrics. With Jerry Douglas and Mike Marshall backing her up this time, all I can say is WOW!

Becca Polglase

AMAZING!
I cannot stop listening to this album! My favorite song is All Good Things, but they are all wonderful. Beautiful voice, moving music.

You Go Girl!!
I have been playing the CD for a week straight, driving to work and home. Love the backup on this one. Can't wait to see you in concert again

"Second Sight"
It is about time another superb cd comes from this artist. It is rare to say that there is not a bad song on her cd, there's not. Actually she doesn't have a bad song on either. I have both on shuffle in my ipod. I wish she had more work on cd's. I saw her at Godfrey Daniels & Musicfest in Bethlehem Pa, She is a delight to see in person and always surrounds heself with the best musicians. Get her cd's and see her "Live" It is worth it.

Second Sight
A sweet set of tunes, Corrine. Thoughtful and soulful. Your voice has an elegant and rustic sort of earnestness ...and that's a comfort these days.

Michael E Fitzgerald

Styyyyylle!
The first thought is the interesting vocal control Corinne has. The title song, "Second Sight" is such a "groovy" and movin' song. That one and "Diamonds To The Wind" are of a bluegrass style. "Diamonds" is also an excellent song. "Hell Yes" is a real mover too. The other songs show a varied style of folk and Americana, well produced and well written. Style is the reason to get this CD.
