Baeilou is a balancing act of talent and intrigue. Read about her single, "Eleanora", on Fresh on the Net's Fresh Faves.
"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.

From behind the veil of young love’s ephemeral sweetness, “Eleanora” is the new single from baroque singer-songwriter Baeilou. Using the cello as an otherworldly extension, the melody meanders through a creaking hallway full of cobwebs and flickering lights. It’s lush soundscape creates an eerie, unsteady feeling as the disillusionment of falling in love becomes an all encompassing embrace.
