Traveling, creating, and sharing oNorman Baker & The Backroads_3riginal live music are a few essential ingredients for the enrichment of humanity. Norman Baker and his band play homage to this fact by introducing new and old songs to as many communities as possible. Their new album utilizes undertones of pedal steel, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, clarinet, and of course an onslaught of acoustic and electric guitars telling stories of loss, loss prevention, camping, driving without cell phones, childlike innocence, home towns, and walking till your shoes wear through.

Baker’s respect of family values, roots, and tradition is evident throughout his music. His debut release, “The Art of Not Knowing,” features his mother on fiddle, father on keys, uncle on drums, himself on many other instruments, in addition to several other Seattle musical stalwarts. The artwork for his newest release, “Present Day,” features a series of photos from a 1970 house concert of his pops performing, his mom in attendance, and cops busting the party.

Norman was 13 the first time he performed on stage with fellow Backroads band mate Michael Muir. They sang and played Beatles and CCR while sitting in with the band their dads were in together. Twenty years later their harmonies and guitar work continue to weave seamlessly through timeless original rootsy compositions. Muir’s Clapton and Allman tinged guitar approach meshed with Baker’s Doc Watson meets Neil Young influences prove to be a great combo as the band continues tacking on the miles around the Western US.

A group of passionate professional musicians from the local, national and international music scene with one goal…make you want to shake your tail feathers while begging for more!

There is a focus on creating musical connections and conversations that leave listeners emotionally connected and engaged in the performance. The typical set includes performances of hand-selected covers ranging from early 1920’s traditional jazz to 1960’s soul and funk, modern pop, rock and electronic music. The band also performs original pieces and arrangements, heavily rooted in the improvisational traditions of New Orleans Music and Jazz. The band platform acts as a melting pot for the ‘Krewe’ to bring together their collective musical ideas, experiences and energy to create new and unique sounds, textures and feelings for their audiences to dig!

The band lineup consists of veteran road-dogs having performed throughout the world with artists such as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Odesza, Allen Stone, March Fourth Marching Band, The Seattle Symphony/Opera, Monophonics, Polecat, Grace Love & the True Loves, Beat Connection, The Dip, Tubaluba and the Lucky Brown Band. This gives the group a unique blend of styles and genres along with experience performing on some of the world’s most awe inspiring music venues.

“When I’m on stage, I’m trying to do one thing: bring people joy. Just like church does. People don’t go to church to find trouble, they go there to lose it.” James Brown

In April 2013, guitarist/composer Michael Whitmore began a weekly residency at the Snapdragon Café on Vashon Island. Over the next three years this ‘Sunday night jam’ grew into a full-blown ensemble … the whole kit & caboodle — Barry Cooper on trumpet, Dianne Krouse on sax, Patrick Christie on upright bass, Dodd Johnson on percussion and jazz vocalist Christine Goering. The music is both composed & improvised. The overall sound is mellow, almost west coast cool, with moments of intense invention. Add a dollop of American primitivism, clusters of neo bossa nova rhythms, some very soulful vocals — think 60’s era jazz meets KEXP meets Twin Peaks in Rio de Janeiro, with a whiskey & soda in hand and your Nana is catering the gig under a yellow hoodoo moon.

Some’tet is:
Michael Whitmore – guitars, vocals
Christine Goering – lead vocals
Barry Cooper – trumpet, flugelhorn
Patrick Christie – upright bass
Dianne Krouse – alto sax, clarinet
