2018 saw the release of her debut EP ‘Dreamer’. Since then she has been playing shows up and down the UK - she has supported the likes of dodie, Tessa Violet, Maisie Peters and Will Varley.
After successfully crowdfunding to create her second collection of songs, Baker set to work on her new record earlier this year and has released the first single ‘Broken’ which has been described as “heartbreakingly beautiful”. What you think will be this soft, simple acoustic piece, moves into something moving, bigger, and full. This song has everything, and even in its simplicity, it’s telling.
