ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You keep me flying, you keep me smiling
You keep me safe in a crazy world
You understand me, embrace my fragility
You keep me safe in a crazy world
And in your arms I find the strength
To believe in me again
--"Safe in a Crazy World"

With accomplished musicianship and exquisite soul, Corrinne May evokes words and music that are both generous and genuine, stories she reveals in a voice of striking purity and undeniable magic.

Her self-titled debut presented a calling card to audiences in the U.S., Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore. Now, the suite of songs that comprises Safe in a Crazy World extends Corrinne's worldwide appeal as it speaks of her connection to those around her. She explains, "With the first record, I was pouring out the emotions I felt at being in a new city, having to leave my family and friends in search of my calling. I was looking for answers and the album was born out of that introspection. The new album is happier. There's more of a feeling of being settled and wanting to reach out and be involved with the world."

'Cause I don't know where your journey goes
Or how long it will take to unfold
But as long as we keep this moment shining in the dark
I know you're watching over every beat of my heart
-- "Every Beat of My Heart"

Corrinne's journey began in Singapore, the former British colony at the cosmopolitan crossroads of east and west where she studied classical music and earned her degree in English literature before moving to Boston for an education in songwriting and film composition at Berklee College of Music. Relocating to Los Angeles, she came to the attention of legendary Grammy-winning songwriters, Carole King and Carole Bayer Sager, with whom she collaborated. Live shows at intimate listening rooms including The Hotel Cafe, The Mint and Genghis Cohen introduced her to appreciative audiences as well.

With her debut came accolades: Harpers Bazaar, FHM, Music Connection and Performing Songwriter magazine who deemed the release, "a touching, enchanting record." MTV Asia featured her video for "Fly Away" and television shows on Lifetime and ABC selected her songs to underscore their dramas as did the Columbia/TriStar feature, So Close. Named Best Contemporary Album by the musical alliance, Just Plain Folks, the album spent over a year on the top sellers list at CD Baby.

All of this was a prelude to Safe in a Crazy World, wherein the promise of Corrinne's artistry blooms in full flower. Her trademark ballads are adorned by a cinematic string section and epic orchestrations and her lighter side shines on "Little Superhero Girl," where she wants to "turn the bullies that terrorize/Into pink poodles that bark but don't bite," and the upbeat pop of "If I Kissed You," when she asks a potential lover, "Would you run naked up the street with a tattoo of my name on your behind?" All of the songs are penned solo, with the exception of the poignant "Everything in Its Time," a collaboration with Carole Bayer Sager.

The river runs and the river hides
Out to the ocean and under the sky
I promise you, the answer will come
Hold on to patience and watch for the sign
Everything in it's time
-- "Everything in its Time"

With Safe in a Crazy World, Corrinne May creates a sonic sanctuary of hope and solace "When people connect with my music and tell me that I've given a voice to their feelings, it deeply moves me. Music is my balm for whenever life gets a little crazy and I love being able to share that."

In her art, as in her life, love radiates a luminous warmth.With lyrical themes of compassion and understanding, Corrinne May's artistry is a welcome invitation to be Safe in a Crazy World.

Beautiful voice, lovely songs!
Corrine May has a very soothing voice. It's wonderful to listen to while I'm driving, very calming. The songs are very pleasant and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this CD!!

Fly Away

Japan has Emi Fujita. America has Sarah McLachlan. And Singapore has Corrinne Ma
Overall, Save In A Crazy World is a competent album by international standards and even an outstanding album by Singaporean standards. However, the fact remains that it breaks no new grounds and offers songs which are indistinguishable from one another.

Scary’s Selected Spins: If you like any one track, you’ll love the entire album. If you dislike any one track, you’ll detest the entire album.

great CD. I love Corrine May's music....
Highly recommended CD. Corrine May is a very very talented artist. This album is sooo great I listen to it almost everyday. Awesome CD!!!!!

LishaZ

Exquisite and honest
Corrinne's voice is crystal clear and gentle. With this most recent cd Corrinne has truly evolved into a sensation. She does not force her voice toward you yet the result of hearing her music is indelible. She complements her vocal clarity with her accompished piano in waves of emotion. Corrinne's music is hers and when she sings the whole experience of listening is honest. Her melodies here are hardly ephemeral, they're quite memorably lovely but it's her warmth that you carry with you once you've been struck by her music.

David Preiser

MTVasia.com

In Summary : An enchanting and inspirational record indeed.

Our Rating: 9 / 10

Following her debut success, Singaporean singer-songwriter Corrinne May is back with a brand new album Safe In A Crazy World -- a collection of 10 classic piano/guitar pop tracks, featuring indelible melodies and inspirational lyrics.

Crowned with crystalline vocals, Corrinne May enthralls listeners with her powerful ballads "Every Beat Of My Heart," "Let It Go," "Safe In A Crazy World" and "Everything In Its Time" -- a song which she co-wrote with legendary singer-songwriter Carole Bayer Sager. Upon listening, Corrinne May's vocals communicate wrenching emotional nakedness with impeccable clarity and purity.

But tears are not all Corrinne May manages to evoke. She makes listeners smile and laugh along with songs like "Little Superhero Girl," "Save me," and the hilarious pop quirkiness of "If I Kissed You." "Free," the major breakthrough, delivers an epic feel, highlighted by long vocal segments by Corrinne May with ingenious instrumental backing, all done while maintaining a rock ambiance. Standout tracks -- "The Birthday Song" and "Angel In
Disguise" -- also display Corrinne May’s impressive song-writing skills.

8 Days Magazine

Truly a songbird who flew away.
Homegrown singer Corrinne May’s sophomore album is both poetic justice and a
sobering wake-up call for chin-scratching critics still hankering after the “indie”
badge. Justice because it dispels at last, any notion that Singaporeans lack the gift
of song (forget Singapore Idol), and a rude awakening because she is no longer
based here, but in Los Angeles.
Channelling the likes of Carole King, Natalie Merchant and Vanessa Carlton (don’t
worry, just the piano bits), the NUS alum easily delivers the most uplifting, original
local album in the past five years. While local bands ape the West and forage for
identity and magazine covers, May’s quiet workmanship and sensitive song crafting reaffirms the old dictum that empty vessels do
make the most noise.
Lyrically, May’s sweet diary-entry musings won’t satiate the academics, but her easy-listening soul and pretty melodies will warrant
investigation. She sings without cynicism (or a perceivable accent, for that matter) and embraces optimism in the most likable way.
Truly a songbird who flew away.
