Louis Baker’s long awaited self-titled EP due for release on Friday 21st March 2014.

Renowned for equal parts uplifting / tear inducing live shows, Bakers achingly raw lyrics intertwined with rich melodies and emotive vocal tone come together on this, his self titled debut EP due for release on March 21st.

With a voice producing shades of Motown-era soul, Louis Baker’s song writing skills and striking sound leaves no question as to why international media have touted him as one to watch.

The EP was recorded in London over four days in a North London studio last June with producer Andy Lovegrove (Breaks Co-Op, Supergrass) they kept the songs simple with just guitar, vocals and string arrangements.

The result is a beautiful collection of mesmerizing melodies with a hint of melancholy to stir the soul.

Pre order the EP on iTunes here or from bandcamp here.

To celebrate the release, Louis Baker will begin the EP release tour in his hometown of Wellington at the San Fran Bathhouse on the date of release – Friday 21st March.
