03 Jan Silence, there is music… (Mabel)
I’m not sure why and it only happens once in a while but when it happens, you know it instantly. You listen to the first chords and you realize that you’re in front of a unique talent. It hits you right in the face with all the emotion and leaves you speechless.
The first time I heard Julien Baker I knew it instantly and I could not stop listening to her for weeks.
Her songs speak of the kind of things that very few people dare to talk about and that very few want to listen to: mental illnesses, fears, guilt and insecurities.
She is only a 23-year-old girl from Memphis but when she sings she has the raw wisdom and honesty of a lifetime.
