About Rae Morris
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 titled From Above.
By 2014 Morris was actively working on her debut album with producer Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM, Vampire Weekend, Charli XCX), and she released several more EPs leading up to its release. She delivered her full-length debut album, Unguarded, on Atlantic in 2015. Morris spent the next few years touring and writing in preparation for her sophomore album, 2018's Someone Out There, which ventured further into electronic territory. ~ Timothy Monger
