Our Careers and Industry team actively support and nurture all the musical talent to pass through ICMP and are responsible for selecting our weekly #ICMPSpotlight artist.

This week they've chosen to shine the spotlight on Cornelia, one of ICMP's Cert HE Songwriting alumni.



Cornelia Forslund aka Cornelia is a 20 year old singer songwriter from Stockholm, Sweden. After spending a year in London to obtain her  Cert HE Songwriting at ICMP, she went back to her hometown and released 'Siargao'. 

Her debut single, produced by Jay Hooks, a fellow ICMP student, talks about a paradisiac island in the Philippines. Siargao is a place you can't help but yearning to go back to. 

The word Siargao probably doesn’t make sense to a lot of you. It’s the name of a remote island. I went there, I fell in love and left, pretty much."

Cornelia found herself thinking and writing about it on - guess what? - a rainy day in London in late 2018. The song's gentle harmonies, together with Cornelia's celestial voice, tell the perfect tale of love and nostalgia.

Keep up to date with Cornelia on Facebook and Instagram.
