Red Paper Wrapping, by Kaity Rae
From the newly released album The Christmas Present
” Kaity Rae sets the bar pretty high with Red Paper Wrapping, which incidentally is the single from the album and will be released on December 10. Rae’s singing on the title track shows you straight away that her voice has depth and emotion there are times she has the vitality of Lily Allen and also she has that unadorned rawness of the pre-punk Kate Nash but has the quality of softness and clarity which has become The Staves trademark….Kaity Rae’s slightly gritty, smoky tone is just fantastic. She would probably have been banned by the BBC 40 odd years ago”
Danny Farragher, Folkall Blogspot
This is the single from a new Christmas album with a difference, full of youthful vigour and contemporary reflection. Kaity Rae is just seventeen year’s old and is already attracting media attention. One to watch, for sure.
