Two-time GRAMMY winner Corinne Bailey Rae released her self-titled debut album in 2006, reaching No. 1 in the UK and No. 4 in the U.S. The album featured the global hits “Put Your Records On” and “Like A Star.” Bailey Rae won her first GRAMMY in 2007 for Album Of The Year as a guest on Herbie Hancock’s River: The Joni Letters.
Her second GRAMMY came in 2011 for Best R&B Performance for “Is This Love.” In May, Bailey Rae returned with her third studio album and first full-length set in six years, The Heart Speaks In Whispers which debuted No. 3 on Billboard’s R&B chart. Featuring “Been To The Moon,” “The Skies Will Break” and “Green Aphrodisiac,” NPR named it one of their favorite 30 albums of the year so far. The album has gained worldwide acclaim, already garnering four- and five-star reviews.
Recorded both at her studio in Leeds and in Los Angeles at Capitol Studios, the album was co-produced by Bailey Rae with Steve Brown, who collaborated on her critically acclaimed 2010 album The Sea, and features a number of notable musicians, including Paris and Amber Strother (KING), Best New Artist GRAMMY winner Esperanza Spalding, James Gadson (Bill Withers), Pino Palladino (D’Angelo and The Vanguard), and Marcus Miller (Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Luther Vandross).
Bailey Rae was selected by NASA for historic DESTINATION: JUPITER campaign when Juno spacecraft entered Jupiter’s orbit on July 4th; represented Europe for the International Olympic Committee’s PSA Campaign; performed at various festivals in the UK and Europe, including Glastonbury; and was special guest supporting Stevie Wonder at his Hyde Park, London concert alongside Pharrell Williams, for a crowd of over 60,000. Bailey Rae is having a great time on tour in the U.S., which includes headlining dates, festival dates, dates with Alabama Shakes and co-headline dates with Andra Day. Most recently, President Obama featured “Green Aphrodisiac” on his Spotify Summer “Night” Playlist.
