Rae Morris released debut album Unguarded, on 23rd January 2015 through Atlantic Records. Rounding off an already incredible year in 2014 for the 22 year old Blackpool native, Rae was also been announced in the long-list of the BBC Sound Of 2015. Her single Under The Shadows is also riding high on the Radio 1 A-List.
Unguarded, with production by Ariel Rechtshaid, Jim Eliot and Fryars, deals head on with the highs and the lows that come with life-changing, character-building relationships, as though she’s some old, wisened soul way beyond her young years.
2014 was somewhat of a learning curve for the young artist and she’s gone from strength to strength. From writing songs alone in her bedroom to working alongside incredible musicians and producers, Rae has really come into her own and is more determined than ever about the path she is forging for herself. Rae is truly the musicians musician and has already garnered huge support and fans across the industry (with Chris Martin, Haim, Laura Mvula, Tom Odell and Bombay Bicycle Club to name a few, all showing serious love for her) and a plethora of critical acclaim from press, making her one of the most relevant, exciting new artists to come out of the UK and this is just the beginning for her.
Rae is set to have a busy summer this year, with the first lot of festival performances announced, including Dot to Dot Festival on 22nd to 24th May, and she will be supporting her good friend, Tom Odell on his Forest Live tour in June and July.
