The best kept secret in music



“Moonshine” – The Thomas Baker Band: Sit on your porch with a beer, a glass of wine, or lemonade (without refined sugar in it of coarse:) and blast this song really loud!!!!

"The Thomas Baker Band"

“The Thomas Baker Band is one of the most promising bands to ever come out of South Carolina. Their sound is genuine, and their lyrics transcend their age as well as their peers.”
Andrew Ford – Muse Magazine
- The Muse Music

"Live At Molly MacPherson's"

"A late night box of sets that led off with Moonshine-finishing up in the Bakers Dozen Bar-and all of it wrapped up in a sick Smokey in the Bandit-was enough to give you chills."

Feeling a bit camera shy


Ben Baker's sound touches on harmony, accessibility and intelligence. It's digestible music that has something important to say. Baker describes his music as acoustic-driven melodies in harmony with smart lyrics. The combination of two guitar players who can mix and match every strum of the other blindfolded. Years and years companionship has drawn these musicians together into a shared wavelength. And it's a wavelength in which listeners can gladly participate.


Baker has a deep connection with music itself. Humans are not his only friends. In fact, he says that music is my only faithful lover. Music inspires Baker. He admires its ability to draw forth an emotional response in even the most jaded soul and its ability to touch on every conceivable human emotions. He uses this facet of music in ever song he writes. Music evokes emotion of some kind in anyone with a soul. It can lead the way to drunken craziness on a Saturday night and it can ease your soul on a Sunday morning sidewalk. Baker also cites musics ability to enact social change. It can inspire revolutionary thought. He also points out its ability to guide the human soul to transcendence. Music can take you to a place where you do not need to think at all.


Baker strives always to create music that is distinctive, not derivative. Time after time I see technical, musical genius wasted on unappreciative crowds (live audience or the market). Time after time I have seen these three-chord wonders bring down the house. But there is a positive light that shines through with artists of Baker's caliber. Then there are those special times when ability and inspiration come full circle and meet back in the middle.

The Artist at Work

Baker keeps the writing flowing. The more you work, the more you grow as an artist, he believes. I'm constantly writing, constantly getting better. The ongoing writing has provided Baker with plenty of music to choose from for public presentation. We are in the process of recording a debut LP. The album should be released by the end of 2007 at the latest. He is currently working with A&R Select, the leading independent A&R firm in Hollywood, CA.


Ben Baker's music is lush and thoughtful and compulsory listening.
