WHO IS IT YOU THINK YOU SEE
Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Kelli Baker moved to New York in 2012, with $500 in cash, chasing the heels of Hurricane Sandy.
She was taught music and voice in the church choir, went on to audition choral groups, performing the National Anthem for the NBA at 17 (Phoenix Suns), fronting a hard rock group, pairing in a folk duo, and eventually, writing and performing for herself.
The sudden death of her beloved father in 2015 was a turning point in her life. Life before is part one. This is part two.
Kelli has been compared to Liz Phair, Chris Cornell, PJ Harvey, and Aretha Franklin. She describes herself as if 1990’s Liz Phair sang blues/rock. Her major influences are The Rolling Stones, Jane’s Addiction, The Black Crowes, Bonnie Raitt and Neil Young.
She performs independently and with various local acts, including Rolling Stones tribute, “Let it Bleed”. For bookings, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Kelli is currently in production at Milk House Studios with multi-platinum producer Philip A. Jimenez. She resides just outside of New York City with her daughter, Ashlee.
Now streaming on all music platforms.

what is it about me
that scares you about you
My memory expels you
My cells long to forget you
Your skin leaves my skin
Like the dust to the floor
Ashes to ashes
You are dust
My skin has forgotten you and
The beautiful way you were before
My skin has forgotten you
I don’t know you anymore
I’m fine, we’re all fine here. I’m not for everyone.
