SONG PICK: Michael Baker – Baby Books

London-based singer/songwriter Michael Baker releases with “Baby Books” a bright and optimistic sounding single that does not immediately reveal its darker and truly serious backstory. Admittedly, I have the biggest admiration for artists who are able to take their emotions and experiences and turn them into a beautiful song. When asked about the background for “Baby Books”, Baker reveals:

“I wrote Baby Books after losing a friend who lost their battle with mental health. It shocked me how much we wear masks every day & how hard it is to see what is bubbling away underneath. Most of the time I feel that this song is not my song to sing, but then I remember the solution of all this is to talk more openly and be prepared to share our inner demons with friends and loved ones.”

Could not agree more, and once again, kudos to artists who use their craft to make people think and spur conversations. Listen to the gorgeous “Baby Books”, our Song Pick of the Day:
