Singer/songwriter Julien Baker has cultivated a serious following since the release of her debut solo album, "Sprained Ankle" in 2015 after forming and later leaving the alt-rock band Forrister. Prior to a much anticipated set at this year's FYF Fest, Baker stopped by LA's El Rey Theatre on Thursday night, August 25th, playing to a near capacity and completely captivated audience.
Powerful, affecting and deeply moving, Baker's set left me completely awestruck. Watching her perform live is nothing short of a pure emotional experience. That she manages to convey these feelings with just her resonant voice and guitar is all the more striking.
