MJbaker is easily one of St. Augustine, Florida’s most progressive performers, influenced by all things non-traditional and using elements of jazz, blues, hip hop, rhythm and blues, and soul to create a completely original sound of elegance as well as attitude. Using a combination of both self-produced backing tracks as well as her live acoustic guitar, MJ creates a plethora of different sounds to choose from, making her as diverse as she is exquisite. Audiences can expect to hear radio hit favorites, as well as MJ’s own introspective originals which highlight her philosophy of reality and the human condition.
Singing from an early age, MJ has become a master of her vocal capabilities, knowing just how to create the small nuances she is so well-known for. Influenced by Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu, and Louis Armstrong, MJ takes every personality of influential artists on stage with her, creating an aura of timelessness as well as perfection in approach and execution. Captivating and unmasked, MJ is a bare-soul performer, leaving no corner of her own being undiscovered. She shares her life experiences through song and even has spoken-word poetry scattered throughout her body of work. A true artist and poet, MJbaker is a divine example of the “real deal”.
