At the prompting of a friend, Baker ventured to Richmond, Virginia to record a number of her new songs at Spacebomb Studios. The tracks from this session were circulated among Baker's friends, meeting high praise and lots of encouragement for the songs to see a proper release. Soon, she found a home on 6131 Records' increasingly diverse roster, and plans were made to release her debut full length, Sprained Ankle.
To call Sprained Ankle a happy accident would be misleading as to the nature of these poignant, emotive songs. Yet no one, least of all Baker, could have predicted she'd be releasing an album, especially as a solo artist. Thankfully, now the world will be able to share in her passion and sorrow

Anyone who has ever wandered aimlessly through empty teen years that brought them perilously close to the afterlife will identify with these raw confessions about auto wrecks, trauma centers, heartbreak and a mournful plea for rescue.
"Sprained Ankle" is not a pleasant listen. It is an honest revelation of someone who has survived a journey to the depths and lived to tell about it.
