Seventeenth Street album for sale Product Description
Baker first turned ears five years ago with "Dreamers", a five-song EP released in 2007. Seventeenth Street songs At the time, critics welcomed him as "a leading singer-songwriter," raving about his "delicate yet somber voice" (Sacramento Bee) and his "magnetic and Dylanic" sense of melody (Sacramento News & Review). However promising, this debut was followed by a long silence. Finally putting an end to this hiatus, Baker is back with "Seventeenth Street", a fully matured, full-length album. Produced and engineered by Robert Cheek (Deftones, Tera Melos), the album also features guest appearances by Matt McCord (Cake), Kris Anaya (An Angle, Doombird) and pedal-steel legend Bruce Kaphan (who scored innumerable feature films, including Masked and Anonymous, with Bob Dylan, Jeff Bridges and many more).
Baker wrote and recorded Seventeenth Street over the span of three very traumatic years. "A big part of the record's subject matter is about overcoming addiction, and a crippling depression - which landed me in the hospital several times - followed by my father dying," Baker says. "That was where the inspiration for a lot of the music came."
Seventeenth Street is imbued with the essential poignancy of Baker's experience, and the emotion shines throughout the album with an intimacy not common in today's rock music. At once strong and fragile, this album is an occasion for Baker to deploy the full range of his musicianship, which takes on shades of Mark Kozelek's introspective rhythms and harmonies on tracks like "To Love and Be Loved" and "Somewhere Other Than Here" or of Elliott Smith's bitter sweetness on "Psychobaby" and "Dead Peasants."
