Music to soothe your soul...

I fell in love with her first single, Put Your Records On, which has been getting extensive airplay. Listening to her voice, you'd think she hails from a smoky jazz club in the US. I remember being surprised to learn that this beautiful voice belongs to a lady who hails from Leeds.

Corrine Bailey-Rae's debut album of the same name is stunningly beautiful and all the enchanting songs on the albums were co-written by Corrine. I stumbled across her by accident, trying to find a tune I'd heard on the radio earlier in the day. I never found that tune but something better by an order of magnitude. She has the best voice I've heard in years. How to describe it? Silky soft yet effortlessly powerful. Smooth as a freshly buttered banister but with an edge that pierces you right through. This voice goes straight to the pleasure centre in your brain and dances on it barefoot.

She is going to be HUGE. Bigger than huge. 5 stars is not enough to review her music with. Look out Joss Stone and KT Tunstall, there's a new kid on the block and she's going to sweep all before her.

A friend, leyndokona2 last year introduced me to the delights of Emiliana Torrini, and when I listen to Corrine's album, I am very much reminded of Emiliana. Both have a certain ethereal quality to their voice, and their albums are those that you would listen to, lying on a rug, in front of a roaring fire, glass of wine in one hand, and caressing the skin of your lover with the other.

So, as I allow my mind to be seduced by Corrine's voice, and the words seep into my soul, why don't you have a little listen, and see if you agree?

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥
