We call it POP music because it explodes.
And BAKER knows how to blow up a room. He is the male solo artist of a new generation and while his songs provide the perfect soundtrack to the buzz of the dance floor, they won’t leave you at last call. His electric sound and smooth vocals will follow you out of the club to shamelessly flirt with you in the street, in the cab, the next morning and beyond.
BAKER has a dizzying background. Raised in Manhattan as a classical cellist and a graduate from Harvard, he has since recently relocated to Los Angeles to complete his debut album. Publications like PAPER magazine haven’t focused just on his music. Equal parts David Bowie and James Dean, BAKER shares a keen sense of style that only elevates the substance of the music.
Within the past year, BAKER has performed at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas and the CMJ Music Marathon in New York in addition to clubs and venues in LA and his hometown NYC. Currently working with members of RedOne’s team, The Writing Camp and the Young Boyz, BAKER plans to make what he calls “a true pop album. Big bangers, big ballads, and everything in between.”
His tracks linger in the air, when you’re running down an empty boulevard at 3 AM, hoping the errant adrenaline of the night might last. There’s a loose magic to BAKER’s electricity, to the pulse of his rhythms, and above all to his beat. In the closing moments of his newest single, “NOT GONNA WAIT,” we hear BAKER ask, “You like that?” We can only agree.
