Slipping on to the scene after she finished her A-levels a few years ago Rae Morris is an elegant and charming singer that’s definitely worth a listen. This artist has been neatly tucked under the radar since she began and never has raw talent been more apparent. Originating from Blackpool in the North of England it’s clear her voice is definitely home-grown. One of the most striking things about Morris is her passion. Through incredible vocals she sings with great force over her therapeutic piano skills, you’ll find yourself been amazed by her authentic and alternative talent.
The first time I saw Rae was this year during the local Live at Leeds festival. She almost made jaws drop in the holy trinity church this may, as her voice projected throughout the venue.One other clear element in Rae is her honesty. Her lyrics have an intimate and personal feel she could be compared to the likes of the great Kate Bush. Not only for her amazing lyrics but for her bushy hair, Rae knows how to neatly pack all the elements of a great musical artist in a tasteful way. If you’re into the likes of Birdy and Noah and the Whale you are sure to like Rae, it’s one of the most honest things for a singer to perform solely with her voice and a piano, which gives her music an older fashioned and traditional feel. You’ll find yourself falling asleep to ballads such as “Walls” and “For You”, as her voice is a lullaby of incredible symphony.
Rae’s debut track “Don’t Go” was featured on the final episode of Skins this year, a fitting track to mark the end of the series she sings about her relationships, and it’s clear that she reaches artistic purity. Self-penned lyrics to Self-drawn single covers, it’s clear Rae cares greatly about what she’s doing. During modern times you can seldom find an artist that leaks passion for their music and doesn’t just do it for the publicity and the money, but its more for the music with Rae. If you check out her site you can buy an EP for just five pounds and her other tracks can be downloaded for free! Last Year she Supported Noah on their tour but In the following months Rae Morris will be supporting Lianne La havas on her nationwide tour, so book some tickets as you’ll be in for an incredible night of pure talent and musical perfection!
