Bailey Rae has received two Grammy Awards, two MOBOS (the UK's Music of Black Origin awards), alongside multiple nominations including BRIT and BET Awards. She was awarded her first Grammy in 2008 for Album of the Year when featured on Herbie Hancock's River: The Joni Letters. Her second album, The Sea(2010) was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize. The subsequent EP Is This Love garnered a Grammy for Best R&B Performance.
Bailey Rae returned in 2016 with “boundary-defying, epic music” (NPR) for her third studio album, The Heart Speaks in Whispers, also declared “the best R&B of 2016” (The Guardian). The album featured the stunning "Green Aphrodisiac" named one of the “10 best R&B songs of 2016” (Billboard) and selected by President Obama for his summer playlist. The new songs soared in her live performances as Bailey Rae embarked on a worldwide tour, including festivals and a special guest appearance for Stevie Wonder’s BST Hyde Park London concert.
