Sam Baker / Press

“A strong literary element to Baker's work. Some of the most vivid, compelling, truly original songs of any artist working today.”

“Baker captivated me. His songs are closely observed narratives of eccentric and marginalized people finding meaning in seemingly defeated lives--almost like Leonard Cohen’s, if Cohen had been a Baptist raised in West Texas”
