Louis Baker is undoubtedly one of the most soulful voices to emerge from New Zealand’s fertile musical landscape. With a powerhouse voice that’s capable of a primal RnB scream or tear-inducing plea, and drawing from the rich traditions of soul, hiphop, and jazz music, Louis has gathered a loyal following that spans the world over.
From his self-titled first EP, all the way to his widely acclaimed 2019 debut album ‘Open’, and his most recent EP, Love Levitates – described by Rolling Stone Magazine as “luxurious funk-soul”, Baker has toured the globe, gathering fans and tastemakers along the way – resulting in over 38 million Spotify streams, sold out shows and nominations for prestigious music awards including the APRA Silver Scroll Award, Taite Music Prize and Aotearoa Music Awards.
This February, Louis Baker brings his signature slow-cooked, indie-soul sound to Tūranganui-a-kiwa!
