In the duo’s new video for “My God”, the awesome father-daughter band bitter’s kiss do something of a mini-tour of both America and the world at large. This time, they’re not stopping to rock their inspiring, soothing beats live to the audience.

Chloe Baker is the face of the duet-also-band bitter’s kiss, rocking the piano and guitar while also letting her vocal gift and prowess out on the live stage and in the studio. She also skillfully takes charge of the lyrics that flow smoothly, helping her more deeply and sincerely express her message on the live stage and the studio.
Chloe’s music and message shows many diverse influences, including Regina Spektor, Carole King, Sixpence None the Richer, Sarah McLachlan – to name a select few artists. In her music, Chloe presents the old-soul spirit of Carole King in the way she addresses weighty matters, and the gentleness in sound and demeanor in the mold of the more contemporary Sarah McLachlan.
Her father, Michael Baker, completes the duet by harmoniously setting the tone and taking it up to 11 when it comes to the drums and bass. He’s also the second piano and guitar just to make things even more awesome – not only that, he’s also the duet-band bitter’s kiss’ main producer.
The father and daughter indie-pop two-person band hail from a small sub-urban and scenic town of Weehawken, New Jersey – just right across the Hudson River from New York City. bitter’s kiss started as a medium for Chloe to express her singing and musical talents by her father Michael’s side, while she was attending the North Bergen High Tech Arts Academy.

Chloe shared this about her band’s latest single:
“My God is my reaction to the irony in religious conflict. Religious beliefs are most often promoted as ways to make us better people, but can also be used to justify violence against others, with both sides believing that God is on their side. The idea for the video was to show sameness and humanity in our different religious expressions.”
Chloe, staying true to the core of her message – “with mutual religious understanding, there will be no more war” – after the events of November 9, 2016 shared on their Facebook page:
“I choose tolerance, kindness and hope for tomorrow.”
