JULIEN BAKER
JULIEN BAKER
A Memphis, Tennessee-based singer/songwriter with a knack for finding the shaky ground between heart-wrenching and cathartic, Julien Baker's stark and soulful music invokes names like Bon Iver, Daughter, Birdy, and Natalie Prass. Baker honed her skills while playing in her high school band Forrister, with whom she continued to perform while attending college. After writing a batch of songs that didn't seem to fit the band's more rock-oriented vibe, Baker headed to Matthew E. White's Spacebomb Studios in Richmond, Virginia to begin recording what would eventually become her solo debut, 2015's critically acclaimed, 6131 Records-issued Sprained Ankle.

Grayling
"Some music writers and listeners invoke “poppy” as a derogatory descriptor, meant to disparage the work of “serious” musicians. But to Lexi Campion, nothing could be a better compliment. Though the 19-year-old’s new musical project, Grayling, seems like a far cry from Beyoncé, don’t doubt that the influence of Queen Bey, and other women who rule the pop charts, is present. “I wrote everything kind of trying to marry the pop elements of bands like PVRIS or people like Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry with raw recordings like Bully, even grungy, Nirvana-type sounds.” Those disparate elements come together in Grayling’s debut EP, Everything That Burns, due out April 15 from NDE Records. Campion until recently played drums in Edelweiss, but Grayling is her “creative outlet,” and the EP marks her first solo venture (she plays at least some of every instrument on the record, except the keyboard parts)."
