In high school (Jason) was in punk bands, and I was just a little kid. I even wrote some stuff – one of my first songs for them was when I was six.” – [Ben Baker excerpt from Norfolk Daily News Article Feb 2016]
Cross Neil Young with Sublime and you have yourself, Baker Explosion. A band from Nebraska. Founded by two Brothers (Ben and Jason), with the addition of Isaiah Baker on drums and keys and featuring Felipe Gardea on Bass, they completed the lineup and all came to Baker Explosion with serious musical chops. Jason is an experienced alto sax player, multi-instrumentalist. Ben’s guitar playing has audiences thrilled, yet, he also sings, plays piano, and banjo as well. Isaiah started his tenure as the bands drummer but also adds keys, synths and vocals. Felipe is currently attending Berkley University in Boston Mass, majoring in bass guitar.
Both Brothers have spent their lifetimes writing songs. Mostly being heard only by a handful of friends and family, but in 2016 they had the opportunity of playing a slot on Hear Nebraska’s Good Living Tour, along with doing a set during their hometowns 4th of July celebration with thousands in attendance, broadening their audience, and pushing them to continue writing and recording music.
The Band is poised to release new singles in 2019 and 2020.
In 2015 the band independently released their Debut album “Down In The Cornroots” A record of original songs written across a span of several years, representing different parts of each of the brothers separate lives, that came together as a strong foundation for the band. They have released three music videos for the album “Day After Yesterday” “All I Know” and “Cornroots” The Videos keep a not too serious tone that makes them fun to watch.
