Alexandria Corn, 23, has one of the those voices you can’t help but love.
For as long as she can remember, she has been passionate about music. At five, Alexandria Corn started to develop an ear for it – she enjoyed singing and dancing around the kitchen to classic rock with her mother.
Growing up, Alexandria had a growing desire to cultivate her skills. She not only wanted to share her talents within her town, but with the world. This desire began to come to fruition when she was 14, where for the first time, she found herself in a recording studio with Bobby Acquaviva of Utica, NY. Later, she went on to do talent shows. She loved the adrenaline rush of performing and she quickly learned that she felt most at home on stage.
As Alexandria became more serious about her singing career she began taking vocal lessons with industry vocal coaches – one of which was Nicole Pryor, a recent cast member of The Phantom of the Opera at The Venetian Casino in Las Vegas. At 15 years old, Pryor gave Alexandria the opportunity to study across the country, and soon began performing around Las Vegas with a band called, “The High Rollers”.
As 16, she jumped for the chance to audition for the hit TV show, American Idol, and didn’t let anything get in the way of a once-in-a-lifetime audition. She and her mother flew from Las Vegas to New Jersey and waited in line for 18 hours – which was all worth it when she was handed a golden ticket by the judges. She continued onto 3 further rounds, however, her journey with the show ended just before the televised Hollywood round. Shortly after, Alexandria was immediately offered a spot in Himmelstein’s Pop Academy in Hollywood, CA. There she spent several unforgettable weeks with industry executives, and coaching professionals in the areas of vocal technique, stage performance, dance, and song writing. By the end of her studies, she had written and recorded her first original song with Andrew Lane, a pop//R&B record producer and songwriter.
Alexandria also focused on musical theater, taking vocal lessons and theatre with Alicia Loomis. She starred in productions of “Thoroughly Modern Millie”, “Footloose”, “A Chorus Line”, “AIDA” and many more. She graduated with a Theater Studies Minor at Ithaca College, a leading school in the performance arts.
In 2013, Alexandria got the opportunity to travel to Nashville to attend the CMA awards. There she met Jillian Farrar (Publisher/Writer). Alexandria and Jillian hit it off immediately and began writing. The alchemy between the two was undeniable. Together they wrote Alexandria’s newest single, “Say It Again”, along with writer A. Helms.
Now living in Los Angeles, CA, Alexandria is focusing on her music career with plans to relocate to Nashville, TN next year. She is currently recording her new EP with an expected release date in early 2017.
