Biography

Mister Baby is an original rock music band based in Charlottesville, Virginia. Comprised of 4 members, the band features Megan Huddleston singing lead and playing rhythm electric guitar, Jesse Suhl Fiske of the Hackensaw Boys on lead electric guitar, Jake Hopping, formerly of King Wilkie, on upright bass, and Josh Lowry of The Last Blackouts rocking the drums.
The band plays original songs penned and sung by Ms. Huddleston. Her lyrics cover topics ranging from plotting to bury her lover to worrying about a local drowning victim to enjoying the view from the rooftop of a friend’s apartment. The unexpected mixture of musicians playing both traditional and electric instruments provides an engaging and entertaining show, mostly at a rollicking pace but interspersed with more ballad-like songs and the occasional traditional Appalachian tune made fresh and quite different from the standard versions.
Mister Baby’s influences are about as varied as possible among 4 humans (Megan usually listens to rap while Jesse enjoys French chanteuserie, for example), but all members have been deeply influenced by old-time music. This may explain the nearly country sound of the band but it’s clear that Mister Baby shows up with the intent to rock. And they always deliver.

Lucky fucking you!

Lyrics

Lucky You

Written By: Megan Huddleston

I hear a lot of things coming down the line
I hear you're just so happy now, you're truly doing fine
The clouds have all gone away, the skies are sunny and blue
Lucky fucking you

It was my own idea to leave this whole thing behind
But what was I thinking, dear, I must've lost my mind
I made a real bad mistake but you hit the ground running
Happy to be free from "I do"
Lucky fucking you

One of these days you're gonnna realize
You're gonna cry, boo-hoo
But for now your eyes look dry to me
Lucky fucking you

I know you're hitting the town, I know you've got a new girl
You are living it up, shaking it down, giving it a whirl
Your memories don't keep you up at night though baby for me they still do
So who's the lucky one?
You're out there having fun
But as for me, well hey, hell's bells, my life is done

Lucky fucking you!
