With a breathtaking voice, heart-wrenching lyrics and major instrumental talent, Julien Baker has become one of the most acclaimed artists to emerge in the indie rock scene this decade. Baker may be young, but her maturity suggests someone who's wise beyond her years. Her music forges a connection with empathetic listeners who want to learn from others and their experiences, and her live performances leave audiences wanting more yet satisfied.
A Memphis Maestro
Julien Baker hails from Memphis, Tenn., and was born in 1995. She began playing guitar in her adolescence, which led her to help form a band known as Forrister. Although Julien Baker studied at Middle Tennessee University, she left school to tour full-time. Her first solo album, Sprained Ankle, was produced in Richmond, Va., and became something of a sleeper hit, gaining attention through underground circles. She joined 6131 Records and released a more professional version of the album. This was greeted by positive reception from publications such as Pitchfork, Exclaim!, Clash and AllMusic. Although Baker's songs weren't particularly complex in terms of instruments used, they proved to be very emotionally powerful. The goodwill from Sprained Ankle helped build anticipation for Baker's next project. When Turn Out the Lights released in 2017, courtesy of Matador Records, fans and critics were wowed by how much of an artistic leap forward it was from the already-accomplished Sprained Ankle. More instrumentation was added, and Baker's sound was able to go new places. The next year, Baker became part of the supergroup Boygenius, featuring other acclaimed indie rock and folk artists Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. The group released its self-titled EP in 2018 to considerable acclaim. Baker has also appeared on television programs such as The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and CBS This Morning.
