Recently signed as a Brand Ambassador for Monster Products, Kelli Baker is a Sony Music Artist under Bad Jeu Jeu Records.
Kelli Baker brings a sound unlike any other. 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. Kelli has swiftly moved through the ranks of New York's bristling music scene to become a known name. She has been featured on commercial radio and many international and national outlets, such as Guitar Girl Magazine, Broadway World, Better Lemons, and Brooklyn Vegan.
Early in 2022, Kelli completed a solo national tour topped off with performing in Paris, France.
Now performing with The Kelli Baker Band, she has appeared at iconic music houses such as NYC's The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, and more. The Kelli Baker Band recently completed their wildly successful East Coast tour.
Kelli delivers a commanding performance and has been compared to Bonnie Raitt, Chris Cornell, Susan Tedeschi, and Aretha Franklin. Her dynamic blues tones and gospel nods have been called a kind of ethereal blues. Her major influences are The Rolling Stones, Muddy Waters, The Black Crowes, Bonnie Raitt, and The Tedeschi Trucks Band.
