THE BAKERS, a string duo featuring Emily Baker on vocals, fiddle, & guitar, and Ben Baker on cello. As siblings, Ben & Emily have a history of playing together since their adolescent years. Emily studied Violin Performance & Music Therapy at Berklee College of Music in undergrad, and Ben studied Classical Performance at Eastman and is currently finishing his masters at Boston Conservatory at Berklee. In the most recent years, they have accomplished bringing their musical genres together and forming a unique sound with a foundation inspired from Americana folk, classical new music, and alternative & electronic rock. Emily’s powerhouse voice, mixed with Ben’s sweet cello sounds, create an eclectic and inspired sound that continues to attract new listeners with every performance. They plan to release an EP in 2019, which will give them an opportunity to share their music universally.
— KAITI JONES has been making her home in the Boston folk scene since 2010. A native of Portland, Maine, she spent four years in Nashville, forming her sound in the backyard of Bob Dylan’s folk ballads and Flannery O’Connor’s southern gothic storytelling before returning north. Jones’ music is Americana soaked in melancholy, with the occasional foot stomper thrown in for good measure. Her voice is simultaneously earthy and ethereal, carrying the listener a few feet off the ground on a cloud of rich, sophisticated melodies while whispering truth and contemplating the human condition through good old-fashioned storytelling. Jones has three studio releases: Arise Child EP (2009), Growing Things EP (2013), and VOWS (2017).
