Impossible to pigeonhole, but cut from the same cloth as her idols Kate Bush and PJ Harvey, Rae Morris’s majestic, chamber pop vocals and lovingly crafted, expressive songs have helped her rise from open mic nights in her hometown of Blackpool to chart success in the last couple of years.
Just 23, Rae performed at Reading and Leeds festivals in 2011 and landed a record deal the same year. Her debut single, Don’t Go, was featured on the TV series Skins, and her first album, Unguarded, came out at the start of 2015.
Affiliated with like-minded artists including Brit award winner Tom Odell, Bombay Bicycle Club and singer-songwriter Lucy Rose, this collective of British talent frequently collaborate with one another and you’ll often notice them popping up at Rae’s gigs.
The gig takes place on 6 October at Cambridge Junction, tickets are £14. Support on the night will come from Dan Owen and Port Isla.
