British singer/songwriter Rae Morris began writing songs as a teenager in her native Blackpool. Inspired by watching a television performance by fellow Blackpudlian Karima Francis, Morris began crafting her own music. With her strong, warm vocals and gently hooky piano-led folk-pop, she quickly made an impression and was offered a deal by Atlantic when she was just 18. Encouraging the young singer to develop at her own pace, Atlantic put Morris on a singles diet for several years, letting her find her sound in smaller increments while she was still in college. Early singles like "Don't Go" and "Grow" eventually led to a 2013 EP called From Above. By 2014 she was actively working on her debut album with producer Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM, Vampire Weekend, Charli XCX) and released several more EPs leading up to its release. In 2015, Morris delivered her full-length debut album, Unguarded, on Atlantic. ~ Timothy Monger

Electro - Released February 2, 2018 | Atlantic Records UK
With Someone Out There, Rae Morris doesn’t quite overcome the burdensome influences of Björk and Kate Bush, but she manages to express her singularity more than on Unguarded, her first album released in 2015. This time, the pop sprinkled with electro of the British musician, originally from Blackpool, holds much more lyrical potential. While the sound design is completely in tunes with the times, her songs’ DNA still holds a form of classicism. And when comes the time to unleash the implacable melody of a golden hit song such as Wait For The Rain, Morris’ talent truly shines through. © CM/Qobuz
