Sarah Baker is a “blue-eyed soul” singer, songwriter, composer and pianist who has landed international radio airplay and performed on concert stages with legendary artists ranging from Etta James to Tom Petty.
The Northern California artist performs soul-blues music with a rock edge, offering hints of Aretha, Janis and Bonnie. Her vocals have been described as soaring, gritty, tantalizing and unforgettable. Her songs, instrumentals and lyrics reflect the soulful heartbeat of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, the Southern vibe of Nashville, and the rock ‘n’ roll free spirit of Woodstock.
Sarah’s first album, “Sarah Baker,” features the moving Tiananmen Square tribute “Until the Last Goodbye.” Her Delta Blues album “Maybe Someday” includes cover tunes such as “Blues, Get Off My Shoulder.” Another album, “Dolly and the Lama Mountain Boys,” celebrates the artist’s New Mexico era with live performances of “Cosmic Cowboys” and “Sunday Morning Blues.” Sarah wrote and performed on the title track of “Out of Fire,” an artist compilation project that supports victims of the Tubbs Fire.
Sarah’s new album, “Baker’s Dozen,” includes a rhythm ballad about growing up called “Wiser Woman” and the Me Too Movement-inspired “Build That Bridge.”
She performs with the Pulsators on New Year’s Eve at the Redwood Cafe.
