Somewhat like the Norah Jones of England, jazz-influenced pop singer Corinne Bailey Rae broke into American fairly strongly in 2006, going platinum on 2006, largely on the back of her self-titled album's ubiquitous single, "Put Your Records On." In many ways, that song, a pleasant ditty about the emotional release found in one's record collection (see it accompanying music video above), remains Rae's calling card.
But, now, four years after the fact, Rae's got a new album on her hands--the January-released The Sea--and, as such, she's returned to the States, ready to promote. Which explains why she's in town tonight, performing a gig at the Granada Theater.
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
