Anybody who has heard Sprained Ankle, Julien Baker’s intense debut album, will know what an undeniably beautiful collection of folk songs it is. The fragile, gentle numbers read like an open diary and they found a fanbase that stretched right around the world. Two years later her follow-up record, Turn Out the Lights, arrived via Matador. While still centring on her voice, guitar, and piano, Baker sounded defiant. And this saw her broaden her live horizons, with assured, beautiful shows highlighting what a talent she possesses.
