Siobhan Lynch aka BABA is a singer & songwriter from Dublin, Ireland. Baba has created her own brand of distinctive soulful pop with introspective lyrics and idiosyncratic vocals.
Baba released her powerful single 'I, Defy' in May 2018. 'I, Defy' is pro woman, pro choice, pro doing whatever the hell you like as long as you aren't hurting anyone. 'I, Defy' was Baba's protest song and quickly caught people's attention resulting in the summer of 2018 being quite the whirlwind, Baba supported Tadgh, Five Grand Stereo and Elkae as well as currating her own headline show in The Grand Social. She made her festival debut on The Vodafone Centre Stage at Castlepalooza and finished festival season off on The Earthship Stage at Electric Picnic. In November 2018 she released alternative love song 'Land Of The Damned'.

'Hold On Tight' was also made 'song of the day' on Joe.ie
Baba has been featured on a variety of music blogs both at home (nessymon.com, Remy, The Last Mixed Tape) as well as abroad (Le Future Wave, Wonky Sensitive).
