Just one single, «Lucky» (was it a premonition?) played over and over by Swiss radio stations was all it needed for Bastian Baker’s name to be on the tip of everyone’s tongue, as well as his catchy ballads. Practically unknown in January 2011, in the space of just a few months he managed to conquer the public, the media and even Claude Nobs, head of the Montreux Jazz Festival. He has been a total success, since his first concert at the 2011 Caprices Festival in front of 3,000 enthusiastic spectatorsto his appearance on the Off stage at Montreux. Everyone recognised his charisma, his angelic looks and his talent. It was the start of the Bastian Baker phenomenon. However, this 20-year-old singer songwriter has not let success go to his head. On the contrary, he is realistic and says “I don’t want to be just a fad!”
His first album «Tomorrow May Not Be Better», recorded in Paris with the very best English musicians and mixed at the Philippe Weiss studio, came out on 9 September 2011, was # 1 on Swiss iTunes sales from the first day and soared to the top of the charts (# 3 as soon as it came out in Switzerland). His songs are great mixture of pop-folk and sometimes rock sounds, and the album was so successful with the public and the critics, it became a Gold record in barely four months. After 2011 which finished on a high at Zurich’s Hallenstadion, where the singer performed in front of 13,000 people as the opener for the Roxette concert, 2012 already promises to be a good year. With winning a Swiss Music Award, his album coming out in France this spring, a song recorded for the Swiss Davis Cup team and a song in the works with the producer of the rapper Stress…. There’s no denyingBastian Baker, nominated their 3rd favourite celebrity by the Swiss, is here to stay!
