Sam Baker’s ‘Say Grace’ Is At Once Beautiful And Broken

Baker’s music is simultaneously beautiful and broken, like cracked crockery. His voice barely sketches the simple melodies, and the guitar is marked by the hesitations of someone who relearned the instrument left-handed. But Baker often decorates by quotation — from old hymns or Stephen Foster or, on Say Grace, Emily Dickinson and William Butler Yeats.

Musicians lending support include … Carrie Elkin.
