Recorded December 7, 2009, Hiro Ballroom, New York, NY
In 2006 neo-soul songstress Corinne Bailey Rae became only the fourth female British act in history to have her first album enter the UK charts at No. 1 – her self-titled solo debut, which earned her Grammy nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist. Corinne’s highly anticipated follow-up album, The Sea, was released in January 2010 and debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200.

Beneath New York City’s Maritime Hotel, under the paper lanterns and vaulted ceilings of the Japanese-themed Hiro Ballroom, British neo-soul star Corinne Bailey Rae gave her fans a special treat: an intimate performance showcasing her new hit album, The Sea, seven weeks before its release.
