Clara Baker's music is "medicine for the heart, mind and psyche," (No Depression)-- full of honest and thoughtful lyrics, soulful singing, impressive instrumentation, and an energetic groove. Clara’s clear, strong voice, and heartfelt songwriting is often compared to that of young Joni Mitchell, though you can tell that she spent her formative years in the bluegrass world when you hear her driving rhythm guitar or her creative flatpicking leads.
Clara’s debut album, Temporary Things, was released to critical acclaim, as well as widespread radio play in the US and internationally. The album charted as top-played for two months in a row on national folk DJ charts. Clara is based in Corvallis, Oregon and tours nationally, bringing her charismatic, sincere and confident shows to audiences around the U.S.
