Originally from a small valley in New York and now a fixture of the Orlando music scene. Kaleigh Baker has fostered an emotional connection with her audiences since her early days performing.Currently, she travels more than 300 days a year playing her bluesy blend of songwriting. Kaleigh’s gypsy ancestry has started to take root in her music, melding with her rock attitude, jazz and mountain-soul influences. She continues to mold her music with every bend on her journey.
“With a booming voice reminiscent of Adele, yet a songwriting sensibility that’s tougher and wiser than many out there, Baker’s rough-and-tumble blues mantra sizzles when you throw in her jazzy sound.” -Pure Volume
