all I am, Belinda Corpuz Debut EP Release,

By Paulina Corpuz
April 23, 2017


Known as a strong collaborator in the Toronto independent music scene, Toronto-based, Filipino-Canadian musician, Belinda Corpuz, takes a different role as bandleader with the release of her debut EP, all I am.

Her first single, “Storm”, off of her debut EP, has been greeted with many positive reviews:

“Storm is a fine example of her ability to push the boundaries of what we consider folk… Electronic elements form and dissipate like bubbles rising from the deep, before a reverberating piano line carries the track to a percussive interlude reminiscent of The Acorn. Like the titular storm, this track seems to build and fade, making its way menacingly towards the heart of the squall, a chaotic mess of fluttering piano keys, booming backing vocals, percussive flurries and distorted guitars, before, like a storm, it passes into a sun-drenched outro.” -For the Rabbits

“...tender arrangements with a shimmering guitar in the distance of windswept debris and lush harmonies coalesce with Corpuz’s divine vocals and words that radiate the space with hope and promise.” -Phil Relegado, Ohestee

all i am officially releases on April 28th 2017, with a show at Burdock Music Hall (1184 Bloor St. West). Doors open 8:30pm. For tickets: http://burdockto.com/shows/?show=584.
