Live Gig Video: Julien Baker plays ‘Turn Out the Lights’ on Stephen Colbert

Julien Baker released a new album in 2017, ‘Turn Out the Lights’. It was the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Sprained Ankle’, which proved to be Baker’s critical breakthrough. Both albums are available now from Matador Records. Since then, she’s been selling out venues in America, the UK and Ireland. No shrinking violet, she’s definitely one to watch among the young American singer/songwriters active today.

Last week, she reached another important milestone: making her American late night tv debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, performing the title track alone with his guitar and with incredible aplomb, I might add. Watch her spellbinding performance of the title track of her 2017 LP below. In terms of her next live appearances, she’ll be the main support for Scots Belle and Sebastian on their UK tour in March; those dates are posted here on Facebook.
