Bio

CORDAY WILL WIN YOU OVER WITH HER CHARM, HER WIT, and her irresistible charisma on and off the stage! She performs live on the local circuit and travels throughout the U.S., rockin' the house with her brilliant all-boy band! She also performs solo, with an amazing acoustic performance that will take you from a whisper to a scream, and has assembled a special side project, Corday & The G Strings, an all-girl band, featuring top-notch female musicians. Whatever the line-up, Corday is a front-woman and an entertainer with an incredible personality that captivates audiences of all ages. She is an accomplished guitarist, bassist, and cellist, as well as a captivating vocalist and skilled songwriter. Corday's new CD, Superhero: Wonder Woman Edition has just been released, while her previous albums, Superhero, Redneck Lesbo, Driven, Welcome To My Past, Kick Ash, Spiderwebs, Inhale, and Naked, have sold thousands of copies and are still selling strong! Corday has a large and loyal following in Los Angeles and Orange County and is also nationally known by all fans of women who rock, having toured and performed at numerous notable venues and huge festivals and events including Dinah Shore in Palm Springs, Womenfest in Key West, L.A. Womenfest at the John Ford Amphitheatre, Women's Week in Provincetown, Chicks Rock Music Festival in Cincinnati, and most recently, the Sweet Lesbian Cruise to the Caribbean! Her music can be heard regularly in film and TV, and can also be heard playing in the background of numerous MTV shows including Made, Making Of The Band, and My Sweet Sixteen, while her ring tones are available for download through Verizon and Samsung. As the first ever three-time winner of Best Live Band, Best Alternative Band, and Best Live Female Performer at the Orange County Music Awards, Corday is clearly making everyone sit up and take notice! The new CD, Superhero: Wonder Woman Edition has three brand new tracks: The Superhero Solar City Remixes, produced by Scott Anderson, will dare you to dance and are being distributed to DJs across the nation, while "Wonder Woman" mixed by Matt Thorne (The Eels, Trapt, Warrant, Orgy) is a heartfelt tribute to her mother, Judy, whom she lost three years ago to breast cancer. Corday wrote, recorded, and produced the original ten songs in her home studio before delivering the final tracks to mix-master Gavin MacKillop (Goo Goo Dolls, Sarah McLachlan, Melissa Ferrick, Toad the Wet Sprocket). In her spare time, Corday produces "Girl Rock," a monthly video vlog she produces, shoots, and edits for posting on SheWired.com. The vlog features candid interviews with Corday, and reality-style, behind-the-scenes footage. Corday also writes for Curve Magazine, gaining loyal lesbian fans across the nation. Her parody of Redneck Woman, "Redneck Lesbo," is hugely popular across the nation, and a raunchy good time! Her hit song "Pie" from Welcome To My Past (produced and mixed by Matt Walin at Bitemark Productions) has been described by critics as "a radio's dream," and was included on the MTV Undressed CD soundtrack. Corday also performs at middle schools and high schools everywhere presenting powerful anti-drug concerts with the full band. She has sold and donated thousands of copies of her CD Kick Ash, a collection of nineteen tracks with a positive message for kids. She has toured overseas to perform for the troops in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Macedonia, and is always proud to make a difference with her music. Corday is currently recording a new collection of songs at her home studio, Envy Records. It's a raw and real, passionate and empowering rock & roll rumble full of heartache and celebration. She is currently sponsored by Daisy Rock Guitars, Larrivee Guitars, Levy's Leathers, SKB Cases, Dunlop, D'Addario, Audio Technica, and Peavey.
