Rae Morris is a young singer/songwriter from Blackpool. Learning piano at an early age and forever underestimating her ability, Rae found a voice she didn’t know she had. Make your own comparisons, but be sure to notice a girl of maturity beyond her years.
Cleverly matching her inimitable voice to songs of new experiences, those defining challenges like love and not always being able to have the answers, Rae is the epitome of raw and claims nothing else. Her coming-of-age tales make her a modern-day PJ Harvey, Kate Bush or Feist.
'Rae Morris is becoming the country's most beloved singer-songwriter' (Zane Lowe, Radio 1).
