It’s easy to get overwhelmed when it comes to the world of singer-songwriters. Many acts get lost in the shuffle because, as talented as they may be, they can’t seem to stand out from the crowd. This is most certainly not the case when you listen to Julien Baker. The Memphis raised artist may only be 21 years old, but her writing contains a depth and weight that one would expect from someone twice her age. To say that Baker’s music is an expression of her wearing her heart on her sleeve would be too demeaning of an analogy. Baker goes a step further and gives you the shirt off of her back while imploring you to put it on yourself. While she may only have one record under her belt right now, the Matador Records artist is sure to continue making major waves for years to come.
Julien Baker will be performing during Savannah Stopover at Trinity United Methodist Church on Saturday, March 11 at 8pm. Be sure to catch her set along with the other artists featured here on hissing lawns!
