The songs of The Baker Suite paint vivid, interesting portraits of real life from a true observer’s perspective. John and Gayle allow their characters to narrate stories that conjure up all sorts of images in the listener’s mind while the ductile music plays, allowing the spirit to wander. The Baker Suite have been performing their original music throughout Australia and internationally for over 11 years and released 4 studio albums.
