#SPOTTED: CORINNE BAILEY RAE IN TORONTO AT DANFORTH MUSIC HALL
Girl, put your records on! I have and always will be a huge fan of Leeds‘ Corinne Bailey Rae. A beautiful soul with the calmest energy. I first became a fan of her back in 2006 where she dominated airwaves with her smash hit single “Put Your Records On“. Her success didn’t stop and the award nominations poured-in. BRIT Awards, GRAMMYs, Oprah. She was everywhere.
She played her first show in Toronto in over a decade last night, and while the Set was short and sweet, this Grammy-winning Artist is back after touring delays which impacted literally everyone. Her Music is timeless and her 2006 self-titled debut, one of my favourite Albums, still sounds fresh. She has taken her time releasing only a total three Albums since then and is getting back into the rhythm again playing her hits and a mix of new material for an upcoming release this year.
She tells me she got to enjoy Niagara Falls the other day and rode the Maid of the Mist with her kids and husband Steve Brown (the nicest guy and a partner in her Music too!!). What I love is that she takes breaks between shows to allow her voice to rest and this way she gets to enjoy the cities. She even reads her children bedtime stories every night on the tour bus. Now that’s balancing work and life!
Have missed Corinne Bailey Rae, so much. This brought me so much joy.
