Corinne Bailey Rae was born in 1979, the eldest of three daughters. She began her musical career at school where she studied classical violin before she turned her attention to singing. When she was just 15, Corinne Bailey Rae delved further into music when she formed an all female indie rock group called Helen, which was inspired by similar acts such as Veruca Salt and L7. In 1995, the group became the first indie act to be signed to heavy metal record label Roadrunner Records, home to acts such as Slipknot. The venture proved to be short-lived however after the bassist became pregnant and the group disbanded.
After the disappointment of Helen, Corinne Bailey Rae went on to attend the University of Leeds where she studied an English Literature degree. Whilst at University, she began work as a hatcheck girl on an evening in her local jazz club. Permitted to sing on stage with the jazz band when business was slow, it was there that Corinne Bailey Rae discovered a type of music that sent her on a different musical path. Over the space of the next three years, she began working on solo material - this time steering away from her indie past and embarking on a more soulful path. Corinne Bailey Rae collaborated with Leeds-based funk group, New Mastersounds, on the track "Your Love Is Mine", which she wrote with the group and was released via One Note Records. The following year she again worked with another Leeds based group, Homecut Directive, on the song "Come The Revolution" which was the first single from the groupĂ˘??s debut album. However, it wasnĂ˘??t until late 2004 that Corinne Bailey Rae got a breakthrough when she was approached by Craig David mentor Mark Hill, formally known as The Artful Dodger, to appear on his new album better luck next time under his new alias, "The stiX". The resulting collaboration, "Young and Foolish" was released in April 2005 and brought Corinne Bailey Rae to the attention of the major record label bosses.
After the hugely successful launch of her self titled debut album in 2006, Corinne Bailey Rae begun a gruelling press tour of Europe. She is also touring in North America for the album in late 2006.
