Singer, songwriter, composer & recording artist, Coreena puts all her creative energy into everything she does. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Coreena discovered early on that she had a penchant for singing. She says she sang “all the time” and started making up her own songs at eight years-old. She went on to perform in high school musicals and was later accepted into Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Coreena performed live and recorded an EP project Emotions for the indie music label cgmusic productions which garnered press and good reviews.
Life (and her musical destiny) led Coreena to move back home to Seattle and to reinvent herself musically as an artist in the rich and diverse genre of Electronica. Her previous jazz beginnings are still there in the mix, but she’s added a layer of ambience fused with dissonant harmonies and soprano vocal range. Within her new music, Coreena (a dedicated vegan, spiritualist and environmentalist) touches on issues that include reaching your potential, the environment, and even a little bit of a nod to love-song lyrics here and there.
Coreena is a new breed of music artists, her sonic blend of electronics combined with backbeat rhythms, infusion harmonies and melody makes her an artist you don’t want to miss on record or in a club.

– Blues and Soul Magazine (Import Presssure)
“The 5th Element is hung on a house or trip hop beat and rhythm indicative of … A mix of soaring and layered vocals with haunting ranges that meld fluidly with the trance-inducing instrumentation and percussion are characteristic of Coreena.”
