Julien Baker with Half Waif at The Masquerade

On the first night of tour, the 22-year old singer/songwriter enraptured a crowd of devoted fans who sang back nearly every word of her first album and watched and listened with deep respect as she introduced several songs from her forthcoming sophomore effort Turn Out The Lights. With violin accompaniment provided by Camille Faulkner and opening support from Half Waif, Baker’s tour promises to continue being one of the more engrossing live experiences of the fall season.
