From Jesse Baker
Since 2011, Central PA's alt rock Jesse Baker Band has been hard at work, with many appearances at the Chameleon Club, Lancaster Convention Center, and WXPN's World Cafe Live. Initial exposure came from gigs with Kingsfoil, and plays on 105.7 The X’s local music program. In a few years the band has reached over 36,000 plays online and thousands of followers across Pennsylvania.
Constantly evolving, the Jesse Baker Band has performed as various lineups of various sizes. This variety of experiences has shaped their songwriting, wearing their show down to the parts that count. The 2012 LP “Tearing Down The Walls” was completely self-produced, written and recorded in Baker’s small bedroom studio. Only available as a free download via Noisetrade, it operated as a glorified demo, opening doors in new places such as Philadelphia and regional college campuses.
In 2014 Jesse Baker Band put out new songs consecutively, starting with “The Feeling of Sound”, followed by “Back to the Place I Know”, which was the first single available through digital distributors such as iTunes and Spotify. By mid-2015 they had completed a 6-song EP of their greatest work yet, also produced and recorded by the band.
