Gothic Folk cellist, Baeilou, takes listeners on a multi-sensory adventure on her new EP, Inside Under. AfroPunk features the EP on their blog, so read more about what they had to say!
"Baeilou" names Mia Pixley's cello, as well as her roots, experimental, and classical music inspired solo project. An Austin, Texas native, Mia is a cellist, singer and songwriter living in Oakland, CA by way of New York City (her cello is a Bay Area native). With influences like Caetano Veloso, Andrew Bird, Regina Spektor, Leyla McCalla, Emily Hope Price (of Pearl and The Beard), and Sarah Vaughan, Baeilou's sound is a combination of her southern roots, pop, classical, and some kind of supernatural quirk.
Baeilou has recorded with GRAMMY award winning artist Fantastic Negrito, performed in award winning Off-Broadway musicals, and been the principle musician in award winning full feature film scores. She holds a professional studies diploma in cello performance from San Francisco Conservatory of Music and a PhD. in Clinical Psychology from CUNY Graduate Center. Mia Pixley is interested in the intersection of the performing arts and community mental health.

Like a bright sun seen through an overcast haze, the new single from baroque singer-songwriter Baeilou is a warning of eventual planetary demise. “Mourning Mantra” uses a staccato cello and a caramel sweet melody to talk about the shifting landscape of earth.
Baeilou is a balancing act of talent and intrigue. Read about her single, "Eleanora", on Fresh on the Net's Fresh Faves.
"Adventurous, experimental, dramatic, ominous, and groove-heavy, this cello-and-voice excursion is a wild journey." [8/7/18]
She Makes Music
"‘Mourning Mantra’ uses a staccato cello and a caramel sweet melody to talk about the shifting landscape of earth. From the floating fish in the sea, to the flying birds in the sky, it’s a call to action, sooner rather than later."
Nathan Leigh, AfroPunk
"She circles around stories in her songs, implying much, and declaring little, creating a constant sense of enveloping curiosity. As if beneath the cello plucks and wails, there’s the truth of the matter." [8/27/18]
Fresh on the Net
"Her music is an equal give and take between her voice and her cello, balanced beautifully as if on a knife-edge." [7/2/18]
"You won’t easily find a sound quite like the one made by the multi-talented Pixley, as she puts a twist on experimental classical music, combining it with rock and a unique Southern vibe." [7/16/18]
