Corinne Bailey Rae
From Leeds, England, singer/songwriter/musician Corinne Bailey Rae shot to stardom with her self-titled #1 UK debut album in 2006, featuring the global hits “Put Your Records On“ and “Like A Star”.
Bailey Rae has garnered multiple awards including two GRAMMYS®, two MOBOS and multiple nominations including BRITs, BET awards and more. Bailey Rae won her first GRAMMY® in 2008 for Album Of The Year when featured on Herbie Hancock’s River: The Joni Letters. Her second album, The Sea (2010) was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize. The subsequent EP Is This Love was awarded a GRAMMY® for Best R&B performance.
She returned in 2016 with her critically acclaimed third studio album, The Heart Speaks In Whispers, which pushed traditional boundaries and was described as “the best R&B of 2016” (The Guardian). The album featured the stunning “Green Aphrodisiac” named “10 best R&B songs of 2016” (Billboard) and was selected by President Obama for his summer playlist. The new songs soared in her live performances as Bailey Rae embarked on a worldwide tour including festivals and a special guest appearance for Stevie Wonder’s BST Hyde Park London concert.
Bailey Rae has written music for film and television, including the sought after theme to Stan Lee’s Lucky Man for UK’s SKY1 and recorded “The Scientist” for Universal Pictures’ Fifty Shades Darker opening title, which charted globally. In February, Bailey Rae was chosen by fashion designer Sophie Theallet to launch her Spring collection, signifying a message of world diversity.
Inspiring her heroes, peers and a new generation of artists alike, Corinne continues to collaborate and perform with artists across both musical genres and other media. Her first love remains making music that connects with her fans.
