One Gener8ion is a songwriting collaborative born from a desire to create and inspire positive messages in song.
The collaboration evolved from a deep friendship between Chelsy Atkins, Corinne Gibbons and Ricky Bloomfield.
Chelsy, Corinne and Ricky are advocates of environmental awareness, honouring indigenous voices and supporting social change.
Live, One Gener8ion is an uplifting experience that celebrates life and love.
Born and bred in the Bega Valley Corinne has had an incredible career already - from collaborating with the likes of Jack Sonni of Dire Straits at the age of 20 to producing hit singles, winning the prestigious PBS Jazz Award, A International Peace award and performing to audiences around the world from Japan to India, New York, LA , Uk and of course her sister hometown of Singapore where Corinne has been based for 12 years.
Corinne’s highly acclaimed album MELT was supported by National Geographic and is set to a filmic collage of dramatic cinematic vistas of Natural History footage shot and edited by celebrated Australian filmmaker Toni Houston. Launching the Melt album and environmental project at Stonehenge during the summer solstice was a dream come true for Corinne a passionate environmentalist.
Corinne has also written three successful musicals for children and is currently working on a mindfulness musical for children “Search for the Sparkle”. She is a dedicated advocate for children’s voices and has supported many young people to find their voice through her company Discover Your Voice.
One Gener8ion is the embodiment of Corinne’s passion for music, friendship and the planet.
