Biography

A Memphis, Tennessee-based singer/songwriter with a knack for finding the shaky ground between heart-wrenching and cathartic, Julien Baker's stark and soulful music invokes names like Bon Iver, Daughter, and Natalie Prass. Baker honed her skills while playing in her high-school band, Forrister, with whom she continued to perform while attending college. After writing a batch of songs that didn't seem to fit the band's more rock-oriented vibe, Baker headed to Matthew E. White's Spacebomb Studios in Richmond, Virginia to begin recording what would eventually become her solo debut, 2015's critically acclaimed Sprained Ankle. Issued by 6131 Records, it reached number 23 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart and led to an invitation to join the Matador Records roster. The label released her equally intimate follow-up, Turn Out the Lights, in 2017. ~ James Christopher Monger
