Clara Baker's music is "medicine for the heart, mind and psyche," (No Depression)-- full of honest and thoughtful lyrics, soulful singing, impressive instrumentation, and an energetic groove. Her clear, strong voice and heartfelt songwriting is often compared to that of young Joni Mitchell, though you can tell that she spent her formative years in the bluegrass world when you hear her driving rhythm guitar or her creative flatpicking leads. 

Clara's debut album, Temporary Things, was released to critical acclaim, as well as radio play across the US and internationally. The album charted as top-played for two months in a row on national folk DJ charts.

What you see on stage is a soulful Americana powerhouse-- the product of a folk music upbringing and a rebellious spirit who pays nod to many different genres, but refuses to be confined to them. Clara's raw and poignant lyrics draw you close, and her powerful vocals and guitar playing show a striking level of mastery of her instruments and confidence in her approach to playing them. 

Clara Baker is based in Portland and tours nationally. She will be joined by New Orleans-based fiddler Marshall Baker, and jazz/funk bassist Justin Schepige on this local leg of her ten-state tour.

Clara Baker's music is "medicine for the heart, mind and psyche," (No Depression)-- full of honest and thoughtful lyrics, soulful singing, impressive instrumentation, and an energetic groove. Clara’s clear, strong voice and heartfelt songwriting is often compared to that of young Joni Mitchell, though you can tell that she spent her formative years in the bluegrass world when you hear her driving rhythm guitar or her creative flatpicking leads.

Fiddle-driven songwriter and composer Jess McIntosh released her debut album, Long Time Exhaling in early 2017. Ten years supporting other artists as a fiddler, singer, banjoist and guitarist inform her stage presence with easy wit and generous musical sensibility. Bandmates and multi-instrumentalists Aaron Smith and Bill Harris come steeped in avant-garde jazz, classical music, and traditional bluegrass. Together, the ensemble provokes an unrefined balance between familiarity and newness, held together by strong lyrics and melody under the umbrella of alt-country-folk.
