Who The Hell Is Geoff Baker?

This morning, upon opening Rhapsody I found Geoff Baker recommended to me based on recent music choices. His latest is a short EP and I gave it a click (didn't we used to give records a spin?) and I now have a favorite new artist.

It's under the Goth genre, but I disagree with that categorization. I would think it to be closer to Alt/Folk. A sampling of song titles:

  • The Ballad of Adnan Khashoggi
  • American Flags on Foreign Cars
  • Nobody Suffers But Us
  • Shepherd
  • What Our Children Is Learning

He's political, he's compassionate, and he's clever as hell. Look him up and call him the new Billy Bragg. Or the new Bob Dylan. He's the new whatever you need. He's Geoff Baker and he just made my morning.

Listen up and love it.
