Album Notes
"Field of Plenty" is Baker's sixth release on Earthwater Records and explores a transitional time in Baker's life between the worlds of rock and folk. The bulk of the album was recorded at the Expression Center for New Media in Emeryville, CA. The album also features six special bonus tracks from Baker's fourth release "Rising Tide." "I wanted to have a little bit of everything on this CD," Baker says. She is currently writing songs for her seventh release, the majority of which were composed on the piano (instead of the acoustic guitar). "I am really excited about getting back into the studio again and heading in an entirely new direction. In addition to percussion, I am hearing a lot of strings in my head (cello, violin, viola) and am eager to record what I am hearing," she says. In the meantime, we have "Field of Plenty" to keep us company, and good company it is.

Kim Baker makes her musicianship and songwriting accessible to the masses with her melodic and acoustic guitar-rooted songs. Her voice and songwriting style have been compared to such greats as Chrissie Hynde (of the Pretenders), Melissa Etheridge and Norah Jones. Kim Baker has performed at premier venues throughout the country, including the Great American Music Hall, The Little Fox Theater and San Francisco's historic Fillmore Auditorium (opening for the Indigo Girls).

"Field of Plenty," Baker's latest release on Earthwater Records, features the seamless blending of an eclectic array of songs best described as "thoughtful acoustic rock." The sound is a combination of honest and insightful lyrics delivered in a driving, folk-rock package. The album also features stellar performances by Kenny Aronoff (Melissa Etheridge, John Mellencamp) on drums, Myron Dove (Santana) on bass and Stef Burns (Huey Lewis and the News) on lead guitar. Baker has also been written up in numerous publications, including the Chicago Tribune, Mediaweek Magazine and the LA Times.

Baker grew up in southern California and took interest in music at an early age. She learned to play the piano at age 8 and began playing guitar and writing songs in high school. By age 15, she had committed herself seriously to a future in music, and at age 18 departed for Mills College in Oakland, CA where she earned a degree in music. Within a year of her graduation, and after finishing an internship at Polygram Group Distribution, Baker founded Earthwater Records, and began to perform music professionally. Sean Lineweaver of WHFC Baltimore radio has been spinning Baker's music since 1998 and considers Baker well on her way to national recognition. He raves, "Kim Baker is one of Crossroads favorite new talents. Songs like 'Promised Land' and 'Encircled by Angels' are just proof of her outstanding talent as a songwriter."
