Corinda. . . .
Talented Publishing and Marketing Consultant
Corinda is a multi-talented recording artist, writer, and community leader with an impressive background in her music and publishing endeavors. With two spellings of her last name, she explains that Carford is the Americanized version, and Carfora is her Italian heritage. She approaches life and her work with passion. Her philosophy is to treat each day as a new canvas to create your best life, follow your dreams; and laughter is mandatory.
A LOT OF STUFF
A graduate of The University of Miami, Corinda studied music and creative writing then headed to New York where she appeared in several off-Broadway productions, and sang backup vocals for various recording artists.
As in the case of many aspiring artists, in order to pay the rent she worked as a temp and eventually took a full time job with DC Comics.
Several years later she moved on to Simon & Schuster, and then to Penguin, where she worked her way up the corporate ladder to Vice-President.
Knowing the 9 to 5 and office politics were not in her DNA she ventured off to start her own consulting business for book publishers and authors while pursuing her music.
Some of the highlights include singing The National Anthem at Giant Stadium for the World Cup--including the Italian National Anthem-Fratelli D'italia to welcome our international guests, and a special performance at The Bitter End in New York City with "The Original Deliverance Band."
Her first solo album, Mr. Sandman, included "The Pantyhose Song" written with college pal, actress and singer-songwriter, Gail Edwards. The song was featured in Allure Magazine, and Listen to Your Heart by Fern Michaels, and made several International Playlists. Her work with The Alliance Singers includes an international hit single, Wayfaring Stranger where she is the lead vocalist.
Over the years she developed a strong clientele in the book world while working on a number of music projects including the remarkable journey with The Alliance Singers, whose work for the good of the community brought great experiences and rewards with icons such as Bruce Springsteen, and Jon Stewart from The Daily Show.
An avid animal lover, Corinda works closely with Animal Care Sanctuary- the largest no-kill shelter in the country.
Music accomplishments include performing over 20 concerts with "The Boss" and backup vocals on 4 albums including The Rising and Wrecking Ball; 4 appearances on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as part of the "Official Unofficial Gospel Choir."
