Corinne Bailey Rae is a soul-rooted contemporary R&B singer songwriter and musician, with multiple Top Ten U.K. and U.S. albums. Displaying an interest in music from an early age, Bailey Rae studied classical violin until she acquired an electric guitar in her early teens.

She released her self-titled debut solo album February 2006, topping the U.K. album chart, reaching #4 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, and featuring #2 single “Put Your Records On”. Bailey Rae earned three Grammy nominations and was nominated for as many MOBOs, two of which -- Best U.K. Female, Best U.K. Newcomer -- she won. A year later, Bailey Rae featured on Herbie Hancock's Grammy-winning River: The Joni Letters. Her second album, The Sea, was a Top Ten hit in the U.K. & U.S. after its January 2010 release and Mercury Prize-nominated. Followed by The Love EP, a five-song cover set. Her version of Marley’s "Is This Love" won a Grammy for Best R&B Performance. Bailey Rae’s third album, The Heart Speaks in Whispers, peaked at #2 on the R&B charts and was critically acclaimed, featuring the stunning “Green Aphrodisiac” named “10 Best R&B Songs of 2016” (Billboard). In February 2017, she recorded a cover of Coldplay's "The Scientist" for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack. Bailey Rae embarked on a 2016/2017 Worldwide Tour playing over 12 countries, and has been composing music for film and TV. She continues to collaborate and perform with artists across musical genres.
