Biography

Brian Baker is a singer/songwriter living in the Dandenong Ranges east of Melbourne, Australia. After moving to Australia from New Zealand in 1980, he performed with many Australian bands, securing a recording deal with "The Ones" in 1984 and later writing and recording the score for the movie "Rikki and Pete" with Eddie Rayner. Eddie and Brian went on to work together as "The Makers", releasing 2 CDs through Warner, East West label. Together with drummer Michael Barker, they toured Australia and New Zealand with the B52's.
"Hard Light" is his latest CD, he continues to write and record, and perform his songs at Festivals and clubs. His live shows are mostly solo acoustic because he can't afford the band! But hey, the band wait patiently in the wings!! Still, if this bio hasn't put you off, you should probably check out the tracks here, or better yet, head over to his web site - or hey, send him an email and tell him you like his music but he's gotta change this bio!
