Bastian Baker, born in Lausanne on 20 May 1991, is an example of the rich and diverse Swiss music scene. Songwriter, composer and performer, he has a strong inclination for ?songs you can play around a fire with your friends on a summer's evening?. Like Justin Nozuka or Jack Johnson, he excels in catchy pop-folk ballads with stirring refrains that carry us into his own world, where the carefree and the serious live side by side.
His heart-felt and hard-hitting melodies and texts reveal a heightened sensitivity. He writes in English ?because it's an international language!?, and it's an important factor if you want to share your music with the whole world. He has been crazy about music since he was a very young child. He took guitar lesson at the conservatory for many years and was also the soloist in a choir.
With a solid experience and a repertoire of songs he has written since the age of 15, he has been playing at show-case unplugged performances, private parties and outdoor stage gigs in front of constantly enthusiastic audiences for the past two years now. In fact, during a concert he was noticed by a producer not long ago and at the same time Caprices Festival organisers noticed him and right away had the good taste to offer him a venue that reflected his talent*. Today, Bastian is working hard on his first album. This is excellent news and means soon we'll probably hear his unique voice on radio and ? echoing in our minds!
