In his review of one of the best albums of 2017, our very own David Sackllah wrote that Baker “exposes her deepest insecurities in an effort to form a meaningful connection with her audience, finding no easy answers along the way.” The same could be said for her performance of “Turn Out the Lights”, which found Baker alone with her guitar and pedals up on stage as the lights behind her grew brighter with each verse.
