Bio

Michigan born and based singer songwriter Andy Baker has spent a lifetime peering through microscopes. As a veterinarian, it's a necessary skill...searching for small clues in order to grasp the bigger picture. Pretty handy tool for a songwriter too. In fact, Andy has spent a great deal of his life with his own lens turned inward...and outward...and it shows in his new collection of award winning modern folk tunes.

Songs from his 2017 album "One Fine Day" nod to his influences such as John Mayer, Ryan Adams, and the Indigo Girls, but his subjects wander far off the beaten path. The title track, along with "Whistling Man", won him a coveted finalist spot in the Kerrville New Folk songwriting competition, and the entire album won a Jammie nomination for Best Contemporary Folk Album by WYCE in Grand Rapids.

But it's on stage where Andy's music really shines. He performs with four different instruments during his shows...guitar, dobro, bass, and bouzouki...and his easy humor and energetic performance style keep listeners on the edge of their seats.


As with so many writers, his musical journey began early, when at 13 he begged for a guitar from his parents so that he could learn Eagles and Bob Segar songs he heard on the radio. A high school journal assignment became therapeutic, then creative, then poetic, then musical, then essential. The guitar became a vehicle for words and thought, and once he conquered a little stage fright he never looked back.

Andy recorded his first album "Down" in 2007 and received critical acclaim, including 3 awards from the Great Lakes Songwriting competition. As is so characteristic of his music, his album explored a variety of subjects including origami, greek mythology, self help books, spiritual seeking, and of course, love. 

Andy is currently working on a live album to be released 2018, and performs throughout the midwest.
