The Blues Society of Omaha presents Kelli Baker @ The B. Bar
September 15 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
$10 cover at the door.
Recently signed as a Sony Music Artist under Bad Jeu Jeu Records, Kelli Baker brings a sound unlike any other. Winner, Long Island Blues Challenge “Road to Memphis” 2022.
”When I put on Kelli Baker, I get transported into a world of fresh nostalgia. Her voice is like the legendary blues women of the 1930’s and 40’s, but with a modern seductiveness. Her songs are moody and sensual and worth listening to on repeat. There’s no one with her particular sound right now.” — Rob Rush, Program Director and PM Drive Host, 94.3 The Shark (Long Island).
With a powerhouse voice dripping with a haunting sensuality that slips easily into growling old school blues-tones, Kelli speaks her heart like a beat poet in a late night dive. The kind you only know if you’re in the know. Her music is an amalgamation of authentic blues/rock and heart-on-her-sleeve singer/songwriter pop with folk/gospel roots.
Known in some circles as “The Phoenix”, Kelli was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. She moved to New York in 2012, with $500 in cash, chasing the heels of Hurricane Sandy. Learning music like so many others in the church choir, Kelli graduated to fronting a hard rock band and a folk duo, writing her own music at an early age.
Kelli has recently completed two successful national tours, topped off with performing in Paris, France. Now performing with The Kelli Baker Band, she appears regularly at iconic music houses such as NYC’s The Bitter End, taking the stage at The Cutting Room, Rockwood Music Hall, and some of New York’s most discerning venues.
