Corinne Bailey Rae lets her hair down

I first heard Corinne Bailey Rae on Louisville's awesome independent radio station WFPK last year in advance of her her album release. From the moment I heard "Put Your Records On," I knew she was destined for stardom. (Seriously, ask Gil. I made him sit in the van until the song ended because I was so blown away.)

Well,now that the rest of the world has discovered the same genius I heard a year ago in Kentucky, Bailey Rae has a live DVD coming out April 3.

This is particularly good news since, if it's possible, I love Bailey Rae's music even more in its stripped-down, acoustic format - it places more emphasis on her astonishingly lovely voice.

To tide you over until April 3, watch this live performance (posted on YouTube) from Scotland's "T in the Park" festival.
