Corinne Bailey Rae Sails With ‘The Sea’

Maximum Performance

There is such a thing as career momentum and Britain's Corinne Bailey Rae--who released her first album in 2006 and received a plethora of awards nominations throughout the world for it--continues to have it.

Rae, whose unique voice brings life to her songs in a manner that deeply resonates in the listener, is back with a brand new album, and it's quietly spectacular.

The Sea, released earlier this year, is an extremely solid package of new material excellently played with her full band, that like most great records, grows in impact with each successive listen.

We here at Y! Music were thrilled when Corinne--last in our studios in 2006--recently stopped by for a return visit, with her full band in tow and offering up three extraordinary live performances.

A warm and gracious woman, she again proved a fascinating interview subject and filled us in with the making of The Sea and much more.

Check out these performances, and the accompanying interview, and you'll see why Corinne Bailey Rae remains one of pop music's most compelling performers.
