Soulful singer-songwriter Louis Baker is undoubtedly one of the most compelling voices to emerge from New Zealand’s fertile musical landscape in recent years.
With a powerhouse voice that’s capable of a primal RnB scream or tear-inducing plea, and a talent for writing deeply personal, stirring songs, the Wellington artist has spent the past decade evolving his sound from nuanced acoustic ballads to seductive soul grooves that have taken him the world over.
With two nominations at the NZ Music Awards 2019, and Silver Scroll nominations in 2014, 2017 and 2018, this is an opportunity to watch Louis perform solo in an intimate space.
