Mae received her first attention as a singer in 2009 for her cover of the Bob Dylan song Forever Young , which was featured on the soundtrack of the television program Sons of Anarchy . Her debut album The Happiest Lamb was released in 2010. Mae had previously appeared as a songwriter with a composition for Susan Boyle's successful first record ( Who I Was Born to Be , 2009).
