BARONESS formed in 2003 in Savannah, Georgia, comprised of a group of friends who grew up together in Lexington, Virginia, a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains. They have toured non-stop throughout America and Europe ever since, building up a steady underground fan base. BARONESS’ mission statement has always been simple: keep an open mind, confront challenges, avoid repetition and take the music to diverse audiences. And with such a mastermind in command as John Baizley, BARONESS will continue to progress and move forward. A wind-blowing band.
