Louis Baker & Band (Aotearoa New Zealand)

Saturday 13th October 2018

Louis Baker - Vocals, Guitars
Cory Champion - Drums
Dan Hayles - Keyboards
Johnny Lawrence - Bass
Lisa Tomlins - Backing Vocals

Independent soulful singer-songwriter Louis Baker is inarguably one of the most compelling voices to emerge in recent years from New Zealand’s fertile musical landscape.

Crafting his work with a deep artistic integrity, Louis has gathered a loyal following that spans the world over. Everyone from India Arie (“Louis Baker, you sing my soul,”) to the international music community (BBC 6 Music, Clash Magazine, The Line of Best Fit, Earmilk) have shown love for what he is, and has become.

Louis has also performed at festivals across the world, including Field Days, Sziget Festival, Sonar Festival, The Great Escape, and Splendor in the Grass. And we’re thrilled to welcome him back to our Festival, along with his band which features some of the tightest, funkiest, and most solid rhythm sections in the Wellington music scene, and Lisa Tomlins on backing vocals.
