Hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, 20-year-old Julien Baker writes songs which pick at the threads of the soul. Honing her skills in her high school band Forrister, Baker began her genesis as a solo artist to satisfy her creative impulses when college separated her from her bandmates.
Rather than limiting her artistry, the solo format only enhances the aching, confessional nature of Baker’s lyricism. Her songs plunge headfirst into darkness yet emerge resilient and affirming. You too will be drawn into Baker’s beautiful, bespoke and sometimes gruelling inner world when she takes the stage at Fairgrounds.
