"Baeilou" names Mia Pixley's cello, as well as her seemingly baroque-folk and (sometimes) jazz inspired musical 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). Baeilou's sound is a combination of her southwestern roots, pop, classical, and supernatural quirk. Baeilou has recorded with GRAMMY award winning Fantastic Negrito, performed in award winning Off-Broadway musicals, toured with Windham HIll and been the principal musician in film scores. She holds a professional studies diploma in cello performance from San Francisco Conservatory of Music and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from CUNY Graduate Center. Mia cares about community, the arts, mental health and the environment.
