It becomes self-evident the moment you hear her sing the very first note on the first track 'Like A Star', that it showcases a slice of sublime Billie Holiday blues delivered with a voice that pins you, in the softest but most persuasive of ways, to the wall; a voice that floats up effortlessly, full of caress, subtlety and the very purest quality. It is wonderful, this voice, and surely a discovery to treasure, but it belongs to a young woman not from somewhere musically exotic, say Mississippi or even Manhattan, but just East of the M1 motorway: Leeds, England. Her name is Corinne Bailey Rae, and she was born to do this.
Corinne Bailey Rae was born and raised in Leeds, England, the oldest of three daughters to a West Indian father and a Yorkshire mother. At school, she studied classical violin to a high standard, but any ambitions to take this to a higher level were quickly scotched when the Led Zeppelin adoration took hold ["I loved that band during my teens," she says. "I wanted, somehow, to follow in their footsteps, and to create music of my own".] This she has duly done. Via a faltering indie band, an English literature degree and a determination that simply would not wane, she has now arrived fully-formed, and with a musical poise that sets her head and shoulders above pretty much anybody you could call her peer. Her debut album is sublime, full of tiptoeing delicacy and wraparound warmth, and one that merges the spirit of Billie Holiday with the statuesque soul of Erykah Badu. Even a cursory listen will tell you that its creator is something rather special.
