Erick Baker: Homegrown Balladry

Knoxville, Tennessee, hosts soulful and touching lyrics produced by a talented live performer, musician, and emotive poet. 12-track album Goodbye June, released in June, exemplifies Eric Baker’s Southern sound and blues inspirations, which connects with audiences and provides for memorable ballads. Love song “Crazy,” from his album, renders a bluesy sound and an intricate musical composition; a recurring theme in many of his pieces, from the gentle “In Love With A Lie” to the more fast-tempo “Wrecking Ball.” Erick Baker will be opening for Will Hoge at The Cutting Room in Manhattan on Dec. 7 and World Café Live, in Philly, on Dec. 9.
