Emily Haviland Baker, half of the Boston-based duo the Bakers, is a multi-instrumentalist focusing on fiddle and guitar as well as being a songwriter and arranger. With classically-trained roots and after nearly six years in the corporate-world, Baker reentered the music scene in 2014 by enrolling at Berklee to study music therapy and Americana fiddle performance. In recent years, her powerhouse voice and vocal harmonies have become something that other local artists seek in collaboration. Baker has performed with musicians and groups such as Twisted Pine, Darol Anger and the Republic of Strings/The Furies, Joe Walsh, Bruce Molsky, Emy Phelps, Brittany Haas, and more. Her songs and arrangements are a haunting of sorts, and often have a focus on the darkness that life can sometimes be, drawing inspiration from artists such as Radiohead and the solo material from its members Thom Yorke and Johnny Greenwood.
