Steve Baker and the LiveWires
25.09.2020 / 21.00 @ Kesselhaus

London born harmonica player Steve Baker is internationally known as an innovative pioneer and for his wide range of styles. Since his 2018 solo album “Perfect Getaway”, he has stepped forward as a frontman. His second solo album “The Great Divide” once again demonstrates the wide spectrum of his playing styles, with a mix of British beats, New Orleans grooves, rock and dark modern blues. His songs speak of real life stories, love and the search for happiness in a time riddled with lies. The band’s wiry and minimally arranged sound is laced with choir-like vocals, and this sets the perfect backdrop for Baker’s idiosyncratic songs. With finely honed and rhythmically energized melodic lines, Baker’s unmistakable sound shines through. His musicality fuses an emotionally packed and individual approach to the blues tradition with elements of country, folk, soul and jazz.
