A Michigan native Sean Baker was an early starter on guitar some 25 years ago, and has risen to popularity amongst the shred community thanks to his self released debut “The Sean Baker Orchestra” along with numerous features in Guitar Player magazine and the legendary Mike Varney’s “Spotlight” column. Now with his second album “Baker’s Dozen” set for release on June 19th 2009 on Lion Music, Sean Baker is ready to bring his brand of intense guitar to a wider audience.
“Baker’s Dozen” is home to 13 very heavy instrumental tracks with tons of melodies, and face smashing hooks. It features guest solos by Rusty Cooley (“Verbal Skillz”), Joe Stump (“Neo-Classical Gas”), and a track co-written and featuring Racer X guitarist Bruce Bouillet (“Playing Opposum”) who also added his mixing skills to the album. In addition to his undoubted shred guitar skills, Sean is an accomplished classical player as well as having the innate ability to coax the most vicious and punishing sounds out of the fiddle.
