The mini-tour is in support of her forthcoming second album.

The former St George’s High School pupil’s first album, Unguarded, reached number nine in the official charts.

Rae came to attention in 2011 after gigging locally and being picked up by BBC Radio Lancashire’s Introducing platform with Sean McGinty, who put her forward for the station’s showcase stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals that year.

She soon after signed to Atlantic, releasing her debut single Don’t Go, and going on to co-write and feature on Clean Bandit’s Up Again.

Her comeback single Reborn has already been released to rave reviews, including Jo Whiley on Radio 2.
