With the recent release of her third album, Little Oblivions, Baker has captivated her fans with her knack for brutally honest storytelling and for approaching tough subject matter.
Recorded in Memphis, her latest LP features the tracks ‘Heatwave’ , ‘Faith Healer’ and ‘Hardline’.
When she emerged in 2015, with her debut album, Sprained Ankle, Julien was deemed an anomaly – a 20-year-old queer, progressive Christian and recovering addict from the American South. International acclaim came afterwards with the release of Turn Out The Lights in 2017, the formation of a supergroup, boygenius, with Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus; and collaborations with The National’s Matt Berninger, Paramore’s Hayley Williams, Frightened Rabbit and Manchester Orchestra.
