James Lee Baker

He’s got such a heavenly voice and talent for writing deeply inspiring and intimately connective songs that to call him anything other than brilliant would be criminal.
— No Depression


With an upcoming new album due for release early next year, James Lee Baker is about to reaffirm the fact that he’s one of the most gifted emerging singer/songwriters on the Americana music horizon.

In 2019 alone, Baker made the final rounds in several prestigious competitions -- the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artists Showcase, Wildflower! Festival Al Johnson Songwriting Contest, International Acoustic Music Awards and Unsigned Only. He’s toured the Southwest, opening for the likes of Ellis Paul and Vance Gilbert, and has become an established presence in the Folk Alliance community for the past two years.
