Emerging singer/songwriter Joel Baker is making a name for himself in the U.K., catching people's attention with his heart-felt lyricism and raw, emotive vocals, his thoughtful, honest songwriting touchingly confessional as he addresses the vulnerabilities, hopes and fears that we all feel, an unashamed willingness to lay bare his deepest feelings ultimately tempered by a belief in the redemptive power of love, this delicate balancing act of the human heart sensationally captured in this touching acoustic performance of his song 'You Know Where My Heart Lies', his voice shot through with undisguised honesty and passion.

 

 

Born and raised in Nottingham, where he began his first forays into music, he put music on the back-burner when he left to attend university in Leeds, rekindling his passion when he moved to London to work as an assistant to an MP in the British Parliament, in his down time working with the highly regarded production team, The Confect, on both covers and his own material.

 

 

His The Confect produced Kendrick Lamar cover made people sit up and take notice, as did his free 'Between Kings Cross And Old Street EP', with the growing buzz around his music  seeing him gain recognition on BBC Radio 1, Zane Lowe, BBC 1Xtra's DJ Target and SBTV, as well as playing the Reading and Leeds music festivals, and his recently released 'Long Sleeves EP' has met with critical acclaim.
