Corinne Bailey Rae (born Corinne Jacqueline Bailey on February 26, 1979) is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist who released her debut album Corinne Bailey Rae in February 2006. Rae was named the number-one predicted breakthrough act of 2006 in an annual BBC poll of music critics, Sound of 2006. She became only the fourth female British act in history to have her first album debut at number one. Rae was nominated for Grammy Awards and BRIT Awards, and has won two MOBO Awards and an Album Of The Year Grammy and Best Contemporary Jazz Album for her work as an featured artist in Herbie Hancock's River: The Joni Letters. Rae was married to fellow musician Jason Rae from 2001 until his death in 2008. Rae released her second album, The Sea on 26 January 2010, after a hiatus of nearly two years. Tracks on the new album have been produced by Steve Brown and also Steve Chrisanthou (who produced her debut album in 2006).

Early years
Childhood
Rae was born in Leeds to a black Kittitian father and a white English mother as the oldest of three daughters, including Candice Bailey and actress Rhea Bailey. She endured racist taunts on a regular basis as a child; "My sisters and I were different and people used to say, 'Ah, aren't they cute, the little chocolate children', and "look at their hair". "I know they were only being cute but it was over the top. Then people from other schools would shout, Iraqi and more often 'Paki' (a commonly used racist term in the UK) to me because it was the most common racist insult of the time. 'At least if you're going to do it, get it right,' I used to shout back, 'But my dad isn't from Pakistan, he's from St Kitts—so there!'"

Rae began her musical career at school where she studied classical violin before she turned her attention to singing: "I started off singing in church, I suppose, but people think it must have been a gospel church because of the whole, you know, black assumption", she says in reference to her multiracial background. "But it wasn't gospel at all, it was just your regular Brethren church, very middle-class, where we would sing these harmonies every Sunday. It was always my favourite part of the service, the singing."

Rae later transferred to a Baptist church, where the youth leader was coaching rock bands in the local high school. The church young people wrote their own worship songs and sang covers by the likes of Primal Scream. "We changed the words though", Rae states on her website. "We didn't want to offend the regular churchgoers, now did we?" She recorded two albums with the youth group under the name of Revive.

Performing in church broadened Rae's musical horizons, and her love for making music was solidified after the church youth leader offered to lend her the money for her first guitar. In her mid-teens, she and a friend became obsessed with Lenny Kravitz, and through him she discovered rock legends Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. "I loved that band during my teens; I wanted, somehow, to follow in their footsteps, and to create music of my own."

Rae formed an all-female (barring the drummer) indie group called Helen, which was inspired by similar acts such as Veruca Salt and L7. "It was the first time I'd seen women with guitars. They were kinda sexy—but feminist. I wanted to be like that, at the front of something."

The group raised eyebrows on several fronts; in the white male-dominated world of indie music, they were an all-female group fronted by a mixed-race singer from Leeds. The moniker "Helen" also drew attention, albeit for not all the right reasons: "What can I say? We were 15 years old, and thought that Helen was a cheeky, indie kind of thing to do. It seemed clever at the time. Admittedly, it seems less so now".

The group played many gigs around Leeds and eventually became the first indie act to be signed to heavy metal record label Roadrunner Records, home to acts such as Slipknot, in 1995. The venture proved to be short-lived however after the bassist became pregnant and the group disbanded. "[Was I] Disappointed? I was gutted! I had no idea what to do next".

University life
After the disappointment of Helen, Rae went on to attend the University of Leeds where she studied English Literature, graduating in 2000. While at University, she began work as a hat check girl on an evening in her local jazz club. Permitted to sing on stage with the jazz band when business was slow, it was there that she discovered a different type of music that sent her on a different musical path: "I kept hearing this jazz and soul stuff and I realized I loved music too".

Music Career

2004–2008: Career Music Development

Main article: Corinne Bailey Rae (album)
In the three years after she got married, Rae began working on solo material—this time steering away from her indie past and embarking on a more "soulful" path. She collaborated with Leeds-based funk group The New Mastersounds on the track "Your Love Is Mine", featured on their 2003 album Be Yourself, released via One Note Records. The following year she again worked with another Leeds-based group, Homecut Directive, on the song "Come the Revolution", which was the first single from the group's debut album.

Personal Life

Jason Rae
It was at university that she met Jason Rae, whom she eventually married in 2001 at age twenty-two. "I was Corinne Bailey. I added on Rae, my husband's name, when I got married. There's no hyphen; stops it being posh!". Born in 1976, Jason Rae was a Scottish musician, originally hailing from Aberdeen, who played saxophone for the eight-piece group Haggis Horns. The group has performed with Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, Mark Ronson, Nightmares On Wax and Corinne Bailey Rae herself. Rae had recorded with Bailey Rae, The New Mastersounds and Martina Topley-Bird (Quixotic).

Jason Rae was found dead on 22 March, 2008 in a flat in the Hyde Park area of Leeds. A pathologist report noted the possible cause of death as a "suspected drug overdose". A post-mortem examination on the musician's body was found to be inconclusive. It was reported that Bailey Rae was not in the flat at the time of his death. A 32 year-old man was arrested under suspicion of dealing recreational drugs to the musician but has since been released on bail. In December 2008, Leeds Coroner's Court gave a verdict of death by misadventure, and stated that Rae died of an accidental overdose of methadone and alcohol. The West Yorkshire Police also cleared Rae's friend, in whose flat Rae died, of providing Rae with the methadone.

Corinne Bailey Rae - Call Me When You Get This

Mesaj  Admin Bir Cuma Nis. 02, 2010 1:01 pm




"Call Me When You Get This"

How does it feel being in these arms?
What's it really like to be loved?
I've been alone now, how long?
Have you ever loved the way that i have?
And i have often wondered who,
Who could love you the way i do?
Now i just want you to know, how i'm touched deep in my soul just being with you.
And i need you more each day.
Baby, if you're still awake,
Call me when you get this.
I've got all this poetry now i didn't know then.
I kept inside. guess i had never seen anything beautiful
Till i first saw you asleep at night.
And i have often wondered who,
Who could love you the way i do?
Now i just want you to know,
How i'm touched deep in my soul
Just being with you.
And i need you more each day.
Baby, if you're still awake,
Call me when you get this.
I just wanted to know what it was like, what's it really like to be loved?
These little volcanoes came as a surprise to me.
I never thought i could be this way.
And i have been cautious and i've tried to keep to myself, but who could love you the way i do?
Now i just want you to know, how i'm touched deep in my soul.
Just being with you.
So much more each day,
Baby, if you're still awake,
Call me when you get this

Mesaj  Admin Bir Cuma Nis. 02, 2010 1:04 pm




Oh oh oh...

Maybe you've been pouring everything into this your mistake of this attends to agony, you can't predict this when it comes to it,
You can't hide from me, but don't you surrender anything..
Don't you know that, that patience is a virtue (yes it is), and life is a waiting game...don't you know that, peace must be nurtured

And all the money in the world can buy you nothing... (i tell you that)
All these things happen, all these things happen for a reason, don't you go on and throw it all away ...when the seasons change (you gonna change)...

Oh oh...

Hurts me to see you feel this way but it won't be always, don't you know everything got to change,oh... feels like all your hope is gone, you can't carry on, but there's nothing oh, you don't have to pretend with me, don't you know that, that patience is a virtue, (yes it is), and life is a waiting game, don't you know that, peace must be nurtured...

All the money in the world can buy you nothing, (let me tell you that)...
All these things happen, all these I've done for a reason...don't you go on throw it all away , when the seasons change
Oh oh oh...
When the seasons change

Paris Nights / New York Morning

Mesaj  Admin Bir Cuma Nis. 02, 2010 1:10 pm

Corinne Bailey Rae, Paris la nuit, New York le matin

Voici un nouvel air très frais et doux de la chanteuse trentenaire Corinne Bailey Rae intitulé Paris Nights, New York Mornings.

Cette chanson est extraite du dernier album de Corinne Bailey Rae, The Sea. Elle se balade de New York à Paris en un coup de taxi mais passe quand même un bon bout du clip dans la capitale française, un coup au bord de la Seine, puis une ballade aux Champs-Elysées ... Voyez plutôt ...




Breakfast at Mickey’s, make-up still on
Elbows on the greasy table cloth
One more coffee and one last cigarette

Smiling at the rain cause you hold me close
My best dress on underneath this old coat
Walking down Bleecker no one is awake yet

Still, seven hours
Nothing but clouds
It’s enough to make your heart sigh
We should try
So pick me up and take me out

Oo we crash into love-filled nights
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Oo we race till we’re out of time
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
And now that you’ve taken me up so high
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down

I could see the lights from the restaurant
I couldn’t quite perfect that nonchalance
Paris and champagne with one brown sugar cube

And we danced while the band played “She’s not there”
Kissed me in the rain by the Rue Voltaire
It’s a perfectly good way to ruin those silk shoes

Still, seven hours
Nothing but clouds
It’s enough to make your heart sigh
We should try
For each other and for the lovers

Oo we crash into love-filled nights
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Oo we race till we’re out of time
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
And now that you’ve taken me up so high
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down

You change and you grow
But we were young
We were young and we didn’t know
We didn’t know

Oo we crash into love-filled nights
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Oo we race till we’re out of time
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
And now that you’ve taken me up so high
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down

Trouble Sleeping

Mesaj  Admin Bir Cuma Nis. 02, 2010 1:13 pm








It's late and I'm feeling so tired
Having trouble sleeping.
This constant compromise
Between thinking and breathing.

Could it be I'm suffering
Because I'm never give in?
Won't say that I'm falling in love
Tell me I don't seem myself
Couldn't I blame something else?

Just don't say I'm falling in love

Some kind of therapy
Is all I need
Please believe me
Some instant remedy
That can cure me completely

Could it be that I'm suffering
Because I'll never give in?
Won't say that I'm falling in love
Tell me I don't seem myself
Couldn't I blame something else?

Just don't say I'm falling in love
'cause I've been there before and it's not enough
So nobody say it

Don't even say it
I ve got my eyes shut
Won't look, oh
No, I'm not in love

Could it be I'm suffering
Because I'll never give in?
I'm falling love
Tell me I don't seem myself good enough for something else

Just don't say I'm falling in love
Falling in love
Just don't say I'm falling in love
Oh, yeah
Falling love ooh
Oh, oh, don't say that I'm falling in love, don't say that, oh
Just don't say that I'm falling in love, yeah
Just don't say that I'm falling in love
Don't say but in the answer
'Cause I'll never give in
Oh
Falling in love
Yeah
Oh
