Erica Corbo is a professional musician and performance artist native to the Philadelphia area. Implementing her talents mainly on the piano, she also performs as a flutist, vocalist, and dancer. Her work spans the disciplines of jazz, free improv, and original music. Her first solo album of original compositions, I, America, was released in 2017. Erica plays with and manages the free improvisation ensemble Space Whale Orchestra. She performs in Swing Two, a duo with tap musician Pamela Hetherington. She produces her own monthly concert series called Warp Factor 9. She has worked extensively with the Philadelphia Jazz Project, Take It Away Dance, and the Impermanent Society of Philadelphia. Erica has collaborated with artists such as Michelle Lordi, Monette Sudler, Tara Middleton, DM Hotep, Michael Szeleky, Tim Price, George Korein, Lard Dog, and Eliott Levin. The ultimate goal of Erica’s art is to unify varying music genres, artistic disciplines, and people.
Warp Factor 9 is a monthly concert series created, curated, and produced by pianist and artist, Erica Corbo. Held in a small piano studio in West Philadelphia, the series features small creative ensembles of all genres in an intimate community setting. WF9 creates a much needed home for local avant-garde and jazz acts, as well as for solo pianists and piano-focused ensembles. In pairing the avant-garde with more mainstream genres, Erica hopes to break down the unnecessary divides placed between musical styles, artistic disciplines, peoples, and all other things.
