Corinne Bailey Rae

Yeah, so sometimes, because I opted out of the mainstream music scene, I miss something good. Hello, Corinne Bailey Rae, from England. Who was nominated for some Grammys this year (little though that means anymore). Who has a beautiful, warm sound like a cross between Norah Jones, Alicia Keys, and Us3. It’s fun music; it doesn’t bash you over the head with the seeeeeriousness of liiiiving; it seems very joyful instead, and you all know how I like joyful music. My favorite so far is her bluesy cover of Zeppelin’s “Since I Been Loving You”; I think Robert Plant would approve, since he started out as a blues singer himself. Plus, Ms. Rae used to front a grrl band way back in the day! And she wanted to sound like L7! Which is completely and totally awesome.

    I know what you mean about sometimes missing out on good mainstream stuff. Luckily I have a friend who seems to know my taste and point me towards the good stuff as she comes across it.

    I love Corinne! hooray!

    Corinne is wonderful! I felt dorky writing about her, because probably everyone has a good friend like yours to point the obvious out, but I had to share the love :D
