New York’s current powerhouse returns home

When I put on Kelli Baker, I’m transported to a world of cool nostalgia. Her voice resembles the legendary blues women of the 1930s and 1940s, but with a modern appeal.

Recently signed as a Sony Music artist under Bad Jeu Jeu Records, Kelli Baker brings a sound like no other.

Her songs are moody and sultry and worth listening to. be listened to on repeat. There is no one with their particular sound at the moment.

With a powerful voice dripping with haunting sensuality that slips easily into growling old school blues tones, Kelli speaks from his heart like a beat poet in a night dive. The kind you only know if you know. His music is an amalgamation of authentic blues/rock and heart-on-the-sleeve singer-songwriter pop with folk/gospel roots.

Known in some circles as “The Phoenix”, Kelli was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. She moved to New York in 2012, with $500 in cash, chasing the heels of Hurricane Sandy. Learning music like so many others in the church choir, Kelli graduated to lead a hard rock band and a folk duo, writing her own music at an early age.

Performing at iconic music houses such as New York’s The Bitter End and a regular at some of New York’s most demanding venues, Kelli quickly rose through the ranks of Long Island’s spiky music scene to become a household name. Kelli was nominated as Long Island’s Best Singer 2021 and 2022 by Bethpage’s prestigious “Best of Long Island”

series of awards and named one of Newsday’s Rising Stars. She has been featured on WFUV’s coveted NY Slice, Rollin’ With hosted by Rob Rush of 94.3 The Shark, Launch Music Conference & Festival, Brooklyn Vegan, Broadway World, NYC.Com, Better Lemons, VoyagePhoenix, Faces of Long Island (coming soon) Fresh Brewed Sessions, The Tedeschi Trucks Podcast, Knock ‘Em Dead Comedy, UnRated Magazine, UK Radio’s Don’s Hit List, Governor’s Radio, Breaking Sound Radio, Rising Stars Radio with Rick Eberle, The Douglas Coleman Show, DiscoverYou Radio, The Long Islander, and The Island Now, among many others.

The sudden death of her beloved father in 2015 marked a turning point in her life. The life before is the first part. This is the second part, dedicated to living and creating authentically and without shame.

Kelli delivers an impressive performance and has been compared to Bonnie Raitt, Chris Cornell, Susan Tedeschi and Aretha Franklin. Its dynamic blues tones and gospel nods have been called ethereal blues. His main influences are the Rolling Stones, Muddy Waters, Jane’s Addiction, The Black Crowes, Bonnie Raitt, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Neil Young.

Kelli recorded at Milk House Studios with multi-platinum producer Philip A. Jimenez (Wheatus, Teenage Dirtbag) and at Blokhed Studios with Grammy-nominated producer Tommy Stiegler.
