St. Andrews is For the Ladies...

Corinne Bailey Rae and Janelle Monae are both scheduled to perform at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit.

Tickets are on sale now for Corinne Bailey Rae’s upcoming North American tour, her first in three years. Playing a mixture of intimate venues and festivals, she’ll kick off the outing on April 9th in Vancouver, BC. She will perform at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival (April 17th), the St. Lucia Jazz Festival (May 8th) and on select Lilith Fair dates (to be announced). See below for itinerary and on sale dates.

"The album is a major creative leap from her debut," said The New York Times of The Sea while People noted: "she captivates with a haunting, heartbreaking set that's almost painfully exquisite." In a four-star review, the Los Angeles Times called it “a remarkable accomplishment.” “The Sea is full of tunes packing an intensity and musical adventurousness that might surprise those who know Bailey Rae only from her breezy breakthrough single ‘Put Your Records On,’" observed Entertainment Weekly while NPR’s “All Things Considered” said: "Corinne Bailey Rae mesmerizes with The Sea….[It] marks the arrival of a newly observant songwriter and an absolutely fearless singer.”
