Friday Lunch: Louis Baker

Part of Friday Lunch

Kick back and listen to the soulful sounds of independent singer-songwriter Louis Baker.

One of the most compelling voices to emerge in recent years from New Zealand’s fertile musical landscape, Baker works with the bare essentials, crafting music with artistic integrity.

He has gathered a loyal following – from India Arie to the international music community (BBC 6 Music, Clash magazine, The Line of Best Fit, Earmilk).

In 2013, he was selected to attend the annual Red Bull Music Academy in New York. He then went to London and recorded his self-titled EP, which debuted at #3 on the NZ Album Chart, and was a Top 5 finalist for the 2014 APRA Silver Scroll Award for his song ‘Back On My Feet’.

Baker has independently built up over 9 million Spotify streams from fans across the world, and has performed at festivals including Field Days, Sziget Festival, Sonar Festival, Berlin Festival, The Great Escape, and Splendor in the Grass.
