British singer/songwriter Rae Morris began writing songs as a teenager in her native Blackpool. Inspired by watching a television performance by fellow Blackpudlian Karima Francis, Morris began crafting her own music.
With her strong, warm vocals and gently hooky piano-led folk-pop, she quickly made an impression and was offered a deal by Atlantic when she was just 18. Encouraging the young singer to develop at her own pace, Atlantic put Morris on a singles diet for several years, letting her find her sound in smaller increments while she was still in college. Early singles like "Don't Go" and "Grow" eventually led to a 2013 EP called From Above. By 2014 she was actively working on her debut album with producer Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM, Vampire Weekend, Charli XCX) and released several more EPs leading up to its release. In 2015, Morris delivered her full-length debut album, Unguarded, on Atlantic. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
