Bio by Andrew Trendell (NME)
March 2020, Arts Council UK funded Michael Baker releases 'Salt', A towering accomplishment that will win hearts with its adept handling of love, loss and hope. Among the key tracks that show Baker’s road to recovery, ‘Baby Books’ was inspired by being in close proximity to someone taking their own life – and totally changing the way he saw the world. Single ‘They Look Just Like They Know’ also deals with how “the mind can be a deadly place” and “feeling trapped in the prison of your own vision”. He’s looking for the sunrise on the horizon, too. Baker’s personal favourite ‘Claire’ celebrates the “the beauty of space in a relationship” and the escapist ecstasy of ‘One Good Damn’ has won over scores of new fans with its feel-good magnetism.
Michael Baker says “I feel like I have too much of a personal relationship with anyone who says they like my music,” concludes Baker. “I’ve been getting letters and messages from people saying that my songs have got them through a very hard time, and I don’t know how to reply to them other than as if I’d known them my whole life. That’s the way that I would do it. I hope that my music gives them as much as it’s given me.”
Album 3 is already written and collaborations with Slow Clubs Charles Watson, Ben Christophers (Guy Garvey) & Benjamin Clementine producer Jonathan Quarmby lined up, the next 18 months are going to be very busy.
