Kaleigh Baker is Singing the Blues

The best part about the rebirth of Detroit is all of the people who are moving back to Michigan. I have recently had a lot of friends find their way back to The Mitten and I could not be happier about it. They left when the economy was failing and returned as soon as things started to turn around. Let's face it, if you're into music there is no place like Detroit.

Each friend that returns passes on a new band or artist that they were into when they were out of town and I have been making sure to take a listen when someone makes a recommendation. There is all kinds of music being made all over the country and I want to hear as much of it as I can. One of those recommendations caught my ear and is coming here to play a few shows this week. 

Her name is Kaleigh Baker and she has one of the most sultry voices I have ever heard. She is originally from New York, but has lived in Florida the last few years. Her EP, The Weight Of It All, has been well received and has put her name on the map. Hear it for yourself here.

She is coming to Michigan to play a few shows and to begin recording her first full length album. She will be playing June 26 at The Lager House with The Catfish Project and Joe Firstman and June 28 at Straycat Lounge with Jennifer Westwood and the Handsome Devils.

Here’s a video of Kaleigh performing "Born to Be Bad" live to give you an idea of what you are in store for if you attend the shows.

That voice just does it for me! If you feel the same, you should check her out when she is in town, or at least start following her on Facebook, this lady has a bright future ahead of her!
