“Each song on the album is a conversation. On this record, I try to put life into perspective, battle between the light and the dark, and seek to make sense of the world around me.”
That is a statement made by LOUIS BAKER on his latest record ‘Open’ (available now). The voluptuously decadent presentation by Louis is all over the full album, as he opines, enthralls, and makes subtle and powerful statements about the world around him. The love and care, envisaged by Louis’ beautifully crafted songwriting delivers in an anchored and ethereal single in the title track ‘Open’.
The new-soul infatuation of a singer/songwriter, Louis, hurls darts about and of love, the pitfalls of those same sentiments, in which a major part of this world rotates. The human condition is a delineation of such powerful urges, in balance and in weight. The insufferable quotients, in pretense and lost time, chips away at the most important, and beautiful parts of our existence. The micro world of small favors, come by with wisps of breezes, all, inspiring our lust for longing and intensity of trying to keep that small part of your sanity.
Blending analog and electric instruments to his art, Louis, fires off light shows with his understated but unremittingly soulful vocals.
The album ‘Open’ is a journey of collaborations with friends and persons, like Grammy-nominated Engineer and Producer, Steve Rusch (Kendrick Lamar, Solange, Raphael Saadiq), Brad Ellis (Jorja Smith, James Arthur, Wilkinson), Jordan Rakei (Tom Misch, Disclosure) who co-produced the title track with Louis, multi-platinum selling songwriter Lindy Robbins (Andra Day, Chromeo), Josh Fountain (Bene, LEISURE, MAALA), and Laura Bettinson (FEMME).
LOUIS BAKER promises a decadent ride and journey in this song and album.
Surely comes through.
