Corrine Bailey Rae - Singer Songwriter ~ Biography

Corinne Bailey Rae.

From Leeds, England, artist Corinne Bailey Rae released her self-titled debut album in 2006, debuting at #1 in the UK and #4 in the USA, featuring the global hits “Put Your Records On” and “Like A Star”. It catapulted Bailey Rae into the spotlight with millions of albums sold and earned multiple award nominations, including Grammy® and Brit Awards.

The second album, ‘The Sea’ released to worldwide critical acclaim, reaching Top 5 in the UK and Top 10 in the USA. It was no surprise that Corinne Bailey Rae found “The Sea” nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. The subsequent EP ‘Is This Love’ was awarded a Grammy® for Best R&B Performance in 2011.

Corinne received a Grammy® Award for her work on Herbie Hancock’s album ‘The River’. Recent recordings have seen her work with Al Green, Claude Kelly, Esperanza Spalding, Herbie Hancock, John Legend, John Mayer, KING, Malay, Norah Jones, Paul McCartney, RZA, Salaam Remi, Stevie Wonder, The Roots, Valerie Simpson and more. Bailey Rae also has written music for films and television shows, including “Venus” (starring Peter O’Toole), “Man with the Iron Fist” and, most recently, the theme song to Stan Lee’s “Lucky Man”.

Originally the front-woman of an indie band, Corinne Bailey Rae’s music spans indie, electronic, soul and experimental. Bailey Rae recently performed in Los Angeles for The Grammys’ MusiCares Foundation with Pharrell, The Roots and Leon Bridges in February 2016.

Corinne’s highly anticipated third studio album ‘The Heart Speaks In Whispers’ (May 13, 2016) featuring “Been To The Moon” “Stop Where You Are” and “Green Aphrodisiac”, is already garnering 4 and 5 star reviews.
