A few years back, when going through the list of students @ the Red Bull Music Academy in Barcelona, I came across some familiar and some new to me. That's the greatest part. Of the unknown was a certain Cornelia. But as you know, you bookmark then come back later.
This songstress from Stockholm credited her beginnings to being 'bored out of her tits' (say wrd) and walking the country side writing songs in her head, refusing to being subjected to playing w/ dolls and chasing boy bands. She then translated that into choir which enabled her to also master harmony.
FFWD to end 2010, I noticed the release of her single By The Fire b/w Now And Hereafter which caught my eye as it featured remixes from two other recent RBMA grads: TOKiMONSTA and Daisuke Tanabe.
After conversations that started simply as a request for tracks for a mixtape she was doing w/ partner DJ Mooken, this then lead to submissions, and now released remixes. Gotta love it.

I've said this before, the Red Bull Music Academy network leads to beautiful things, let alone the discovery of beautiful music but great musicians as well. You can grab Cornelia's single on iTunes now. You can listen to the rest of Cornelia's single and other recordings on her Soundcloud page.
Shout to Cornelia for YOUR PATIENCE! Yo, shouts to DJ Mooken. Stand up dude. Major.
