On top of all of that loveliness, I'm working on a tour from California to Chicago in January, which will bring me to Texas and the Midwest for the first time since...2004? I can't even remember, which means it's been way too long.

In other news, I started posting a video each Monday to YouTube. So far they've been covers of some of my favorite songs (artists ranging from Tom Waits and X to Sun Kil Moon and Uncle Tupelo), but I've been writing a lot, too, and it's bound to start getting out. You can watch these videos and then post humorous comments about them here:

Finally, I'm still chipping away at the next CD, but it's slowly taking shape!

All the best from the west coast,

"Great young US singer-songwriter"  Annie Windley, Time Out (London)

"Geoff is a presence when he's on stage; he towers over the microphone, and his tunes demand attention. What do you get from a Geoff Baker song? You get lyrics that are sneakily poignant, with a clever streak -- sentiments of love and loss that stay with you, and stray far away from cliché. You get absolutely sublime finger-picked guitar parts. You get his full baritone, at times plaintive, at other times playful."  Brendan Getzell, host, Hotel Utah open mic, Hotel Utah Newsletter, San Francisco

"Arresting images...Baker promises much and here delivers it."  Paul Kerr, Americana UK
