Blooming out of Northern England, over the last decade pop-soul musician Corinne Bailey Rae has received countless accolades for her multifaceted talent in songwriting, singing, and production. Her music, especially on the latest collection The Heart Speaks in Whispers, is usually executed with a perfectionist's touch (this is only her third full-length album in 10 years). A wide spectrum of iconic heroines like Jill Scott, early Amy Winehouse, and Erykah Badu can be heard creeping within the well-crafted nuances. Occasionally Rae's beautiful guitar playing finds a spotlight during her performances, and it's these moments where her genius shines the brightest. It's not every day that platinum-selling, Grammy Award-winning artists grace the spatially modest Mississippi Studios, so it would definitely behoove those who appreciate high-quality melodies to get intimate with this kind of greatness.
