Modern soulful singer songwriter Louis Baker is inarguably one of the most compelling voices to emerge in recent years from New Zealand’s fertile musical landscape. Crafting his work with a deep artistic integrity, Louis has gathered a loyal following that spans the world over. Everyone from India Arie (“Louis Baker, you sing my soul,”) to the international music community (BBC 6 Music, Clash Magazine, The Line of Best Fit, Earmilk) have shown love for what he is, and has become.
In 2013 he was selected to attend the prestigious annual Red Bull Music Academy in New York. He then recorded and released his self-titled EP, and was a top five finalist for the 2014 APRA Silver Scroll Award for Back On My Feet .
Baker’s also performed at festivals across the world, including Field Days, Sziget Festival, Sonar Festival, The Great Escape, and Splendor in the Grass, building an appetite for bigger crowds as well as more intimate spaces.
