Corrinne May has watched her last 3 albums sell over 30,000 copies in Singapore alone. From Corrine's bio page at her Official Website: "Born in Singapore, but now based in Los Angeles, Corrinne May didn’t always think she was going to be a musician. It wasn’t exactly looked upon as an ideal career to most practical-minded Singaporeans." "She trained in classical piano from the age of 5 and won her first songwriting competition at 15. Thankfully, that soon gave way to more artistic pursuits. She honed her love for Shakespeare with an honours degree in English Literature at the National University of Singapore, and pursued her passion for songwriting and film-scoring at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, graduating with a Bachelor of Music. She then moved to Los Angeles to pursue her musical aspirations."

National Recognition: "In recognition of her contributions to the Singapore and regional music scenes, Corrinne received the Young Composer of the Year award and Wings of Excellence award from COMPASS, the performing rights society of Singapore, in 2007. She was also honoured by her alumni, the National University of Singapore who presented her with the ‘Outstanding Young Alumni Award’, and she represented Singapore at the MIDEM conference showcase in Cannes, France in 2008. In 2010, Corrinne May was commissioned to write the National Day Theme Song for Singapore’s National Day. She sang her composition ‘Song For Singapore’ at the Padang in front of a 40,ooo strong crowd and the song was also telecast in a live broadcast to the whole nation."
