This week Sam sits down with singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae. Many will remember Corinne from her 2006 break-out hit “Put Your Records On” which earned her three Grammy nominations. Both in her lyrics and conversation, the way in which Corinne expresses herself is deeply powerful. Shortly after being thrust into fame, Corinne experienced the unimaginable tragedy of losing her husband, Jason Rae. Life stood still for awhile. In time, though, she persevered. In recent years she’s made two new excellent records: “The Sea” and “The Heart Speaks in Whispers”. Corinne and Sam discuss both in this week’s episode, along with her her love of music (8:07), the experience of losing her late husband(31:00),and falling in love, again (52:49).
