Bailey has today released her new single titled ‘Closer’. Don’t let her looks fool you. This is a newer artist. This is not a soul legend you are listening to at this very moment. Having said that, Bailey is a beautifully soulful singer with that sound that is as much hers as it is her gift to the music world.
Bailey was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and grew up with a variety of different musical influences, including the sounds she heard on Beale Street. She began singing at six under the guidance of the late and great vocal coach Bob Westbrook (Britney Spears, ‘N Sync, Lucy Hale).
After attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, Bailey moved back home, where she has honed her skills as a writer working with the best in the industry. Her father, who was a hugely influential figure in her life, and his love of 70’s music, Barry White, and smooth jazz, continue to impact the music Bailey writes today.
A burgeoning new crooner on the scene, Bailey has shown off a more personal side to her artistry after the release of her first single last holiday season.
