Hak Baker
A bold return from the London songwriter...

Hak Baker sounds like no one else around.

A true original, he started off life as a grime producer before trouble with the law made him re-consider.

Encountering the guitar, he began to sketch out some curiously bittersweet vignettes, matching everyday observations to superb wordplay and his boistrous sense of humour.

Releasing his debut EP last year, standalone single 'Skint' became an anthem of sorts, a tale of raucous defiance amid the austerity era.

Set to play Lollapalooza Berlin next month, Hak Baker's rise is cemented by superb new single 'Thirsty Thursday'.

A song about kicking the weekend off a day early, it covers anxiety, relationship issues, comradeship, and so much more.

Perhaps Hak's most developed, nuanced arrangement yet, it's a sign that his bold confidence can produce something truly special.

Tune in now.
