Originally from a small valley in Western New York, Kaleigh Baker has risen to prominence as a jazzy, blues-rock powerhouse. Her chill-inducing growl and ear-shattering range come drenched in Jack Daniel’s swagger: “Her vocals dip into a low and resounding molasses-slow croon with as much ease as they ascend to ceiling-skimming heights…” – Creative Loafing.
Recently hailed “Orlando’s best singer-songwriter” by Orlando Weekly fresh on the heels of winning “Best Female Performer” at the Orlando Fringe Festival, Kaleigh Baker has become something of an east-coast touring phenomenon, and she has done it all as an independent musician.
Baker’s gypsy ancestry has started to take root in her music, melding with the blues/rock attitude, jazz influence, and mountain-soul she found in Appalachia. Baker continues to morph and mold her music with every bend on her never-ending musical journey – it seems as though she never stops to take a breath, defying science and logic as she belts out yet another chill-inducing tune. Whether providing serenades for a dining crowd or rocking a packed venue with her band, Kaleigh Baker’s talent permeates the core of anyone within earshot.
Baker has shared the stage with the likes of B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Trombone Shorty, Tony Hall, Kevin Kinney, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Boz Scaggs, and Juliette Lewis, in addition to performing at festivals such as Ink N Iron Festival, Bear Creek Festival, Orlando Calling, Heatwave and Gasparilla Festival.
