Corinne Bailey Rae played a live set on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic last Wednesday. As I listened to it in the office, several people walked by my desk, froze, and curiously asked, "What's that you're listening to?" "Corinne Bailey Rae." "Who?"
I have a feeling we're all going to be very familiar with this young lady very soon. Her voice holds both warmth for a biting winter and coolness for a merciless summer. You will move to this, and sing with it. It's soulful, and gorgeous.
Here are the live tracks she played:
Put Your Records On
Till It Happens To You
Like A Star
I'd Like To
Corinne Bailey Rae's self-titled import is available for pre-order.
