Biography

Growing up in the working-class suburb of Newtown, Wellington, Louis developed his passion for music at an early age listening to his parents diverse record collection.

Since day one, Baker has carried a great sense of care and consideration for the ‘soul’ of his music, whether it was in Baker’s earliest written song ‘Three Ladies’ (written at age 17 and dedicated to his mother and sisters,) or his now universally adored 2016 single ‘Rainbow’ (APRA Silver Scroll nomination) which has seen over 5 million Spotify streams and a quarter of a million YouTube views. Respected music critic and author, Grant Smithies said of ‘Rainbow’:“A glorious song this – sad and sparse, wise and true, with a restraint to the vocal that suits the vulnerability of the love-lorn lyric.”

Crafting songs from a place of deep artistic integrity, Louis has gathered a loyal following that spans the world over. International voices such as India.Arie to BBC 6 Music, Clash Magazine and Earmilk have shown love for what he is, and has become.

Throughout his career, music has taken the young singer-songwriter around the world. In 2013, Baker was chosen out of 4000 applicants to take one of only 60 places at the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy in New York. Following the Academy, Baker spent the summer in London recording his self-titled EP with UK producer Andy Lovegrove (Supergrass, Breaks Co-Op, Badly Drawn Boy), which featured the APRA Silver Scroll nominated track ‘Back On My Feet’. Baker quickly followed up with the much-loved, ‘Just Want to Thank You’.
