Corretta Exceeds Expectations At Debut Performance.Read More
Jordan Seah and Noah Dearborn go head-on in a series of Youtube covers with their first one being Ain’t No Sunshine (Lido Remix). The original song was written by the legendary Bill Withers.
This is the first cover that the Corretta members have done teaming up with talented videographer, Nico Manning. Nico has a rich history with cinema and videography. A lot of notoriety came when he filmed a re-cap series while he studied abroad in Lausanne, Switzerland. Noah was there at the same that Nico was. Coincidentally, Jordan studied there about 5 years prior. Here’s what Jordan, Noah and Nico had to say about the work.
“I think this is the start of an incredible partnership. Nico speaks the same language we do and functions just like us. Very productive and efficient, yet detail oriented. We look calm, but the gears are always churning . We’re constantly talking about how we can improve our process or up the ante. ” - Jordan Seah
“I definitely loved the energy of the song and the way that gave our whole tracking process a bit of a lift that we all fed off. [We are] cranking out more!” - Noah Dearborn
“[Loved] watching the final mix of the song come together while editing. The difference between the first rough mix and the one we ended up with was night and day. Bigger and better projects that are in the works”. - Nico Manning.
On February 21st 2019, progressive rock and metal band releases their first ever LP, Corretta I.
Corretta is a California-based progressive rock act. Their debut album, Corretta I, is a 57-minute conceptual epic that fuses rock, progressive metal, blues, and classical influences to create a unique yet cohesive sound.
Formed in 2017, Corretta began as a solo project by lead guitarist and producer Jordan Seah. Wanting to expand, he sought out the help of drummer Noah Dearborn, vocalist Jon Gibson, bassist Colton Russell, and guitarist Brig Urias: all current or former students from Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA. Jon and Brig completed degrees in music in 2016, while Noah and Colton remain active parts of musical life on campus. Over the next two years, the group pooled their talents to create Corretta I.
The album tells the story of a young man on a journey, seeking a cure for his brother’s mysterious illness. The album’s themes of hope, adventure, loss, and devotion are distilled in the group’s first single, “Stay the Course,” in which the protagonist accepts the change that his journey has brought him. The story is told through both lyrical content and adventurous instrumentals. Corretta aren’t playing it safe, and their debut has shown their willingness to push genre boundaries and defy conventions in pursuit of their musical vision.
