"Baker can count themselves among the indie-rock elite...The bells of the ball." - The Boston Globe


"A very distinct sound." - The Metro (Boston)


"Dual vocalists, driven by eclectic, hooky and melodic pop rock, Baker put forth a musical experience that you can’t help but dance too. As they all perform with their instruments so well and jump and dance to the music, they have more fun on stage than most bands you will see today. They are a band that once you hear; you can’t get out of your head. Songs like “Reputation” and “Gotta Get out of the City,” are just some of the prime examples of the infectious sound and choruses that will have you singing to yourself all day."

"This Boston-based quintet combines the sweet sounds of the Beach Boys with the noisiness of Modest Mouse. On their EP "Happy Birthday" the band rockets through songs such as the shoulder-shimmying"Gotta Get Out Of The City" and boogie-woogie rocker "Reputation." - The Boston Globe


Baker finished 2nd place in Boston's WBCN 2007 Rock N Roll Rumble - WBCN


Each song seems to display a different color of an already broad musical palette. They are clearly having fun and that fun is infectious. Baker is a band to watch, as their ever-growing fanbase seems to agree."

- The Noise


"A captivating pop rock performance."

- The Boston Herald


"...memorable hooks and unexpected chord changes galore." - The Boston Phoenix


Without introduction, Baker jumped on stage with all the fervor and energy of a great rock act. Showing off their musical talent, they played a variety of rock songs reminiscent of Modest Mouse, Ozma and ‘70s underground rock. Baker flaunted their gorgeous, ear-tickling harmonies over steady, hard-hitting beats, leaving the crowd wanting more. - Northeast Performer


Baker, took the stage with a mission. Had one not been aware of the main performer of the night was, this band stole the show and had the masses all hooked to their sounds. The five member band that make up Baker, (Conan Skyrme, James Tracy, Nicole Boudreau, Andy Casey and Steve Lord) delivered a stirring hour long performance, with highlights like "Gotta Get Out Of The City" and "Reputation." The upcoming band, whose album is set to release in early 2007, certainly started the show in style. - The Suffolk Voice

Bio

Formed in the musical hotbed that is Steve Lord's basement, there was only one direction this band was headed, and that was straight into the hearts and minds of music enthusiasts. When Baker aren't busy playing shows they can usually be found in a cozy, decrepit practice space concocting a mad symphony of energy and sonic beauty, much to the delight of their ever-growing fan base.
With a much anticipated debut album nearing completion (due out later this year), their wide array of influences and high-energy live performances has both critics and fans alike raving. The buzz surrounding this band at the moment is simply infectious.
