Corinne Bailey Rae - Words and Music - 2010
Corinne Bailey Rae's jazzy neo-soul music has won her two Grammy awards, tons of critical acclaim, and commercial success.
It's taken four years, but Bailey Rae's follow-up album, The Sea, has finally come ashore. The album, recorded partly in the wake of the death of her husband and partly before, wrestles bravely with grief and its aftermath.
She dropped by Studio A where she discussed the difficult road to writing again, and a grittier look on life that defines The Sea. (5/5/10)
