Julien Baker

21-year-old Julien Baker never had any intention of becoming a solo artist. She preferred to hide away with her Telecaster guitar ‘Lucy’, deep into the night in the practice rooms of Middle Tennessee State University. However, talent can never stay hidden for long, and after her single, Sprained Ankle, was picked up in 2015, she suddenly found herself both in front of a microphone and the public. As a devout Christian and self-pronounced ‘queer’ from the LGBT unfriendly American South, she knows how to exactly translate her thoughts and feelings into fragile guitar songs.
