Since picking up the guitar and bass at the age of 12 he's been composing music and playing various instruments in many bands throughout the U.S., Chile, and Nigeria. These days he's influenced by Justin Townes Earle, George Jones, The Band, Charley Pride, Neil Young, Doc Watson, and continues impressing new fans at places like Seattle's Folklife Festival, The Tractor Tavern, Seattle Art Museum, and Columbia City Theater with his band Norman Baker & the Backroads.
