Known for her lyricism, soulful voice, and intuitive musicality, Conduit continues to tackle complex human themes through the perspective of a queer woman in this evocative new project.
Conduit is the alias for singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and music producer, Baileigh Wilks. A queer woman born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, her music carries sapphic, spiritual, and dreamy themes.
Always soulful and honest with a touch of twang, Baileigh is a self-produced solo artist that continues releasing music inspired by indie pop, R&B, and queer culture
“Only Human is about the bittersweet reality of being human—the joy and the fear that comes with that,” says Conduit. “Musically, the EP is anchored in the indie-soul genre. Lyrically, this project is motivated by my reflections on feelings of loneliness, grief, joy, worthiness, while staying true to my identity as a queer woman,” said Conduit.
Baileigh’s musical journey began at age 5. As a childhood self-taught singer-songwriter, she was always drawn to poetry and verse. Motivated by that lyricism and storytelling, she went on to teach herself guitar, piano, and ukulele. The humble beginnings of this DIY-side of music led her to pursue music academically, where she went on to study guitar performance at FSCJ.
Conduit released 3 singles in 2020 and is slated to release a queer-pop album this coming June.
The six-song project, including Conduit’s single “Gemini Rising,” is fully written, produced, and performed by Conduit and is now available on all VMN Music.
