Art-folk, jazz-pop, seductive-country, gypsy-romantica... all terms which have been used to describe uniquely poetic Adelaide band The Baker Suite. Yet all fail to capture what audiences across Australia and Europe already know: this is a remarkable and refreshingly Australian musical experience. Accordionist Gayle Buckby perfectly complements John Baker’s whispering, grainy vocal, in a rich offering of stories and songs that explore life, love and a special relationship with nature.

Expectations were high after The Baker Suite’s 2009 release Quartet for Car Horns and Brakes. Produced by Australian jazz great Paul Grabowsky, the collection of narrative ballads and jazz-influenced pop from a master songwriter saw John Baker compared with Paul Simon, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen. The album met with critical acclaim, and The Baker Suite played to sold-out venues across Australia and Europe.

Now comes this latest offering: Your Dreaming Self, influenced heavily by Baker’s central desert experiences, and from which is drawn the single Evidence of Love. The album will be released in Australia on Friday October 11, after a whirlwind European tour to launch the album in Germany and the Czech Republic. Recording this latest collection has been a spiritual journey for the band, drawing on old friendships as well as fostering new and exciting alliances.
