Debut Album: How did we get to here? (2003)
Label: MTB Entertainment (independent)



Raised by drag queens in a small town in Northern Ontario, Marianne Baker ran away from home at the age of 16 and travelled Europe alone, supporting herself through waitressing, tarot reading and singing in foreign languages. She moved to Toronto from Brussels at the age of 19 and taught herself to play the keyboard. By 21, she had completed her first full-length album entirely independently. The soundtrack to this fantastic life includes Tom Petty, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday, Madonna, Prince and Nenah Cherry. Often described as "wise beyond her years", Baker refuses to limit her lyrical vocabulary to the boring love songs one hears on the radio. She has been known to shock, stimulate and seduce the most unsuspecting listeners with her sultry voice, her intriguing subject matter, and her keen sense of humour.
