Hear Sam Baker live on Ameripresence Thursday, before his performance later that evening at Susanna's Kitchen.
From small town beginnings in Itasca, TX to headlining major music festivals and venues in the US, Canada, and Europe, Sam Baker’s music and story have been shared throughout the world by major media outlets including NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, Rolling Stone Magazine, and The Wall Street Journal. He is a true artist in every way, sharing amazing life experiences through music, story, and visual art.
He was called the ‘Bard of the Workaday World’ by the Wall Street Journal, and ‘perhaps the most captivating songwriter in America’ by Lone Star Magazine. NPR’s Robert Christgau describes his music "simultaneously beautiful and broken…his is a story that must be told...”
“Life is a gift,” Baker says. “Gratitude for what remains is more helpful than resentment for what was lost. Ultimately, I came to understand that these days are wicked short and terribly beautiful. All I’ve got is this one breath, and if I’m lucky, I get another.” Four albums into a career that was ignited by a tragic event in a foreign land, it is life and its precious value that carries Sam’s songs and art into the hearts and minds of his fans.
