Corinne Bailey Rae Tickets for Sale

Corinne Bailey Rae's career path as a musician has been one of great exploration and personal tragedy. She was born on February 26, 1979 and grew up Leeds, fighting overt racism. She found solace in church, where she first discovered her love of music. Years later, Corinne Bailey Rae tickets are being sold for a musician whose passion for music has never waned, but whose genre preference has.

She began singing mostly gospel and playing the classical violin. A few years later she adopted a Baptist and discovered rock and roll, with a particular fascination with Lenny Kravitz. This led to her first band, Helen. Helen was a group completely comprised of girls in a time when white men held a strong hold on indie rock. They were signed to a heavy metal label, but the signing quickly disintegrated after the band's bassist left the group pregnant.

Corinne Bailey Rae then explored University, studying English Literature and, more importantly, discovering jazz. Jazz became her new obsession and the years of dissatisfaction after the breakup of Helen had dissipated.

By 2004, she had signed with a new label, Global Talent Publishing. Corinne Bailey Rae had her first album released in 2006, earning praise for the single "Like a Star". The self-titled album received accolades from the numerous British music associations and the Grammy Awards.

The jazz singer toured the world and even served as the musical guest on Saturday night Live, but the name Corinne Bailey Rae remained far from mainstream. Still, her career seemed endlessly optimistic. Then tragedy struck. Her husband, Scottish musician Jason Rae was found dead on March 22, 2008 in their flat. Rae's death was ruled an accident and Corinne would wait nearly two years before beginning work in the studio again.

Now, Corinne Bailey Rae has come back with The Sea. The album was released on January 26, 2010 and the talented jazz singer is embarking on a promotional tour. OnlineSeats will have Corinne Bailey Rae tickets for those concerts and many more for other popular jazz and pop musicians in 2010.
