The one word titles are an interesting aspect of Sam Baker's songs and a contrast to the inspiring message which results from the songs themselves. He is a unique character and can possible be described as a cheerful Leonard Cohen. Some of the songs deal with sombre events but there is an optimism that runs through them all. His delivery is laconic and spellbinding, his effortless style of delivery matches the message perfectly and produces a very tuneful album which is a pleasure to listen to.

Enigmatic - a breath of fresh air

I would rate 'Mercy' & 'Pretty World' as a must to listen to - enigmatic and music for the soul.
I recently saw Sam Baker LIVE, supporting Lucy Kaplansky in concert. Having Sam Baker as her support act was a massive compliment to herself.
This was the only concert I have been to where the support act got an encore!!
Sam is a survivor of a horrific terrorist attack, whilst travelling on a train in Peru. His music is insperational and grounding - telling tales of 'real life'. An amazingly talented musician & songwriter, with impecable ability to use timing to create an ambience to his music. A true musician would always find a way to play his music - as Sam has!
After meeting Sam and having the privilege of listening to his music, I am left with the feeling that he was meant to survive and tell the tale - inspiring others with his absorbtion of the lives of others and an acceptance that makes you realise 'we are so lucky to be alive'.
Thank you Sam - you are truly a breath of fresh air.
