About Me
We’re (The Baker Suite) from Australia and are looking for performance opportunities in Europe in July 2012, after performing at festivals in Russia and Czech Republic late June/early July.

Our music is described as folk/pop/jazz and you can hear/see/read more at

We’ll be touring in Europe as a duo (guitar/accordion/2 vocals).

We’d love to hear from you - currently our dates/places are flexible.

Best regards,

Gayle Buckby and John Baker

“Their cinematic storytelling creates a seductive and potent world that carries the listener through elegant ballads, gypsy romantica and a waltz in the night rain. Straight from the heart, the songs tell of love lost and found, riverbirds in the central desert, mateship and family”.

The Baker Suite - Bio

John Baker, who writes the songs, has a whispering, almost raspy, vocal style – think Leonard Cohen or Jack Johnson. His acoustic guitar is subtle, rhythmic and tasteful, while Buckby gives the band her distinctive sound with her gloriously melancholic accordion”. The Independent Weekly

Straight from the heart, The Baker Suites’ cinematic storytelling creates a seductive and potent world. Lush instrumentation carries the listener through elegant ballads, gypsy romantica and a lurching night waltz in the rain. 

Often performing as a duo, The Baker Suite are: John Baker (guitar/vocals) and Gayle Buckby (accordion/ vocals). Between them, they cite influences as Leonard Cohen, Paul Simon, Sting, Yann Tiersen, Tom Waits, Bach and T.S. Elliot. They’re sometimes joined by John Aué on double bass, BJ Barker on drums and Karen DeNardi on viola.

The Baker Suites’ latest album, A Quartet for Car Horns and Brakes' was produced by Australian jazz icon Paul Grabowsky, and released in 2010. Since then, the band has toured nationally and internationally to sold out shows and standing ovations. 

Festival appearances include; Adelaide Festival of Arts, Okayama Cultural Festival (JP), Nelson Arts Festival (NZ), International Guitar Festival (AU) and The National Folk Festival (Au). They have opened for Elton John, Kate Ceberano, Archie Roach & Ruby Hunter, Vika and Linda Bull, Francoiz Breut (Fr), Mary Gauthier (USA) and The Audreys. 

“I have always treasured great song writing, and after listening to The Baker Suites’ demo recordings I was struck by the depth and authenticity of the material. It harks back to great writers such as James Taylor, Jimmy Webb, Carole King or Burt Bacharach” Paul Grabowsky.

The Sydney Morning Herald, May 2010
Adelaide’s John Baker trades in subtlety and nuance. The oddity is that he does this while making pop music. His lyrics have that hazy, oneiric quality you feel when awaking in the morning convinced you’ve already been up, and the last dream was real. The music echoes the words in this regard. Bakers voice is fragile and wispy, so final consonants fade to oblivion amid Gayle Buckby’s gentle backing vocals and the swishing accompaniment. The latter is all class, with Paul Grabowsky playing piano, contributing to the arrangements and producing the album. Brilliant guitarist Stephen Magnusson adds his own layers of mystery over the relaxed rhythm section and swooning violas. Pithy pop for thinking people.
