Glad to see Corinne happy again and we look forward to more sweet music.Corinne Bailey Rae was halfway through making her second album when her husband died.Over the next seven months there, they began to collaborate with other musicians – among them Valerie Simpson, and Marvin Gaye’s drummer James Gadson –and, in this way, gradually let the sunshine in. “Initially, we had planned to only be there for a few weeks, but, you know, we had a house in the hills, a pool, a soft-top car, and then we got to play with all these incredible musicians, so there was little incentive to leave, really.” Nevertheless, eventually they had to.

She tells me she has been reading a lot of Carl Jung lately, and is consumed by the idea that too many of us think with our brains when we should be listening closer to our hearts – and, apparently, our stomachs. ” (recent medical reports suggest there are more than 100 million brain cells in the gut).

Thank you to each and every person who has come to any of our 97 shows worldwide!
Thank you to people who have told me what the songs have meant to them over the years. I'll always be grateful for this time and for seeing so many of you face to face.
After years of emotional turmoil, Bailey Rae seems at last happy again.
As our plates are cleared away, I ask if she and her husband are planning to have children. It’s because there is also grey matter in our intestines!
"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." Bailey Rae later transferred to a Baptist church, where the youth leader coached rock bands in the local high school.
Bailey Rae was named the number-one predicted breakthrough act of 2006 in an annual BBC poll of music critics, Sound of 2006.
