“Buoyant and lyrically honest, when country found Baker, she found a home tuned well for her heart.” HeraldCourier.com
“Kaitlyn’s unique and stunning vocals showcases such passion through the duration of the song, and really brings out the raw emotion within the lyrics.” FierceFabulousRevolution.com
“We are already Kaitlyn Baker fans, and we think all of you will be, too.” Countryschatter.com
Baker wrote and co-wrote all of the songs on BLACKBIRD with special attention to the title track. A song which is a tribute to a very close friend, and band member, who was killed in an automobile accident by a drunk driver. “Blackbird” was previously released as the first single from the new EP. Her self-penned songs mirror real life and this one is especially close to her heart.
Born and raised in a small Virginia mining town, and referred to as a modern day “coal miner’s daughter,” her pure country voice rings true and her songwriting rivals Nashville’s finest. Baker’s voice soars on the new release and fans can look forward to great things to come in the future!
ABOUT KAITLYN BAKER Like many country artists, Baker got her start by singing in church, but she also began to perform professionally as a young girl at events in her small hometown and surrounding area. By the time she was 14, she had recorded three self-produced albums, which were sold at live performances. Though she is a country artist, she is steeped in musical influences spanning beyond.
Baker’s love of the stage and her diligence in performance lead to opening for artists like; Craig Morgan, Brett Eldredge, Travis Tritt, Billy Currington, Chase Bryant, Rhonda Vincent, Tanya Tucker, Sammy Kershaw, Jim Lauderdale and many others. Notable appearances by Baker also include; Country Jam Colorado, the Riverbend Festival in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the Young Artist Awards in Los Angeles, California, Findlay Market – Cincinnati Reds Opening Day parade, and “Song of the Mountains,” a nationally syndicated public television concert series.
Baker’s debut single “Burn” charted on Music Row’s Breakout Chart in 2015 and inspired the creation of Kaitlyn Baker’s BURN Sauce, a hot sauce produced by Pepper Palace in Sevierville, Tennessee. Her follow-up singles “Coal Train” and “To Pieces” garnered national attention on music industry charts and media outlets. In 2016 her self-penned “Heart of Appalachia” song was adopted as the official theme song of the Heart of Appalachia Tourism Authority, a nonprofit organization that promotes tourism.
