Chuck Baker's unique sound actively dissolves the traditional boundaries between blues, rock, jazz and even funk. He splendidly fractures the iconic mold of folk, delivering a complex blend of keen riffs, exciting composition, erudite songwriting and an arrestingly percussive style of guitar that punctuates brilliantly.

Chuck Baker is like The Undesirables in one person .

To really appreciate Chuck Baker is to see him play live. Check him out at a folk festival or living room show near you. His performances are engaging and infectious. Chuck has opened for a long list of Canadian treasures including David Francey, Fred Eaglesmith, The Rheostatics, Catherine Wheatley, Wendell Ferguson, and The Silver Hearts.
Baker also holds an MFA from the University of Waterloo and his portfolio of solo and group exhibitions, awards and grants is longer than the song list on his latest disc. He is currently head of Arts at Nottawasaga Pines Secondary School in Angus, Ontario.
