Louis Baker

(New Zealand)


Gigs

Venue
Date / Time
3:30pm Thursday
7:15pm Friday

Independent 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. Working with the bare essentials and 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.

Inspired by vintage soul bands, Baker’s new band features some of the tightest, funkiest, and most solid of rhythm sections in the Wellington music scene, with Baker on acoustic and electric guitar with his voice a tool that he’s able to wield to jaw-dropping effect.
