I am an experienced and strong singer in the high baritone range with my own sound. I have five solo records out currently and am constantly recording and writing music. I'm fast, professional, capable, love to work and am respectful and nice to everyone I collaborate with.
My strength is singing and writing/producing. I am most at home in the electronic/alternative and indie rock oriented genres. Although I listen and play everything from Country to House.
My Soundcloud (linked below) has an album sampler from my most recent record. I played everything on this (except the drums which were programmed by myself or played by my drummer) and I mixed it as well. Hopefully that speaks to my tastes and ability more than anything I can say here.

Interview with Eric Sherman Baker
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Above all I want to bring honesty and truth as a singer and/or songwriter to whatever I'm doing. Regardless of genre, those qualities are what draw a listener in and they can't be faked. Of course they often are but once the new sheen wears off most of that kinda music disappears.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: As a singer-songwriter I like David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Elliott Smith in particular. As a producer I like Aphex Twin and Radiohead a lot!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I have my own sound and my own voice as a singer, musician and songwriter. My creativity is my strength.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started performing and recording fifteen years ago.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My current electronic project Dahlia Fiend
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Great sounds, fidelity etc are useless if the emotion, feel and vibe is not in the performance.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Johnny Marr, so I could ask him questions incessantly about making The Queen Is Dead.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Vocals over an existing track. Sometimes I'm asked to add or write melodies and lyrics which I love to do but I'm also comfortable with singing the song exactly like the demo.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Pretty basic but it gets the job done. I work in Logic Pro. I record with a basic mic setup for guitar or vocals and use midi for synths, drum machines etc.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Well first off I'm gonna need clean power.....
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: To paraphrase Jon Brion I don't want to be analog or digital I want to be both.
