A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending a performance by Corrine Bailey Rae at Joe's Pub.
All of the songs she performed were soulful and deep. She has an amazing voice and I love the fact that her crowd was mature and sophisticated. I had a great time.
After doing a bit of research on her I became even more impressed not only by her talent and music career but by her strength and ability to write, perform, and tour. In 2008, Corrine's husband was found dead in a friends apartment from an accidental overdose of methadone and alcohol. Her husband Jason Rae was a fellow musician, he played the saxophone with her on occasion. (the photo below is of her and Jason)
Here' a quote from Corrine about her soon to be released album titled The Sea.
I managed to record a song of Corrine's at Joe's Pub. Check it out.
