Last month we brought to you attention a proper, emotion wrenching, old school soul ballad called ‘Fool’ from an L. A singer simply called RAE.  We learned that Rae was the musical alter ego of Raechelle Burns and that  ‘Fool’ was her debut outing.

Since its low key release the song has been slowly gaining momentum – you might have heard Robbie Vincent playing it out on Jazz FM and right now the track is rightly being repromoted to bring it to as a wide an audience as possible.

If this was an Adele track it would  be all over the place – a world side smash! Indie soul artists have to work harder, even though they can sing the emotional socks off  Ms Adkins! So, if you’re a real soul fan, you’ll miss this one at your peril … and a generous thank you to Mark Turner’s “Soul Stutter” blog for unearthing this gem. Check out the site @

In the meantime Rae’s ‘Fool’ is out available now from all the usual platforms.
