I am an experienced and strong singer in the high baritone range with my own sound. I have four 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 arranging. I am best at alternative or indie rock oriented genres although I've recorded vocals for clients on Soundbetter on both country and house music tracks!
My Soundcloud which is linked below has an album sampler of my new record currently streaming. 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 Sherman Baker

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.

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.
