Texas singer-songwriter Sam Baker whose new album we reviewed in glowing terms last week, is heading to our shores for some dates later this month. Rolling Stone called his last album “Say Grace” one of the 10 best country albums of 2013 and Mojo magazine’s Sylvie Simmons argued that Baker’s songs “are simple on the surface, poetry underneath – hence the Townes Van Zandt comparisons…. Even the songs that don’t quote old gospel standards sound like you’ve always known them.” And we do like to quote old gospel standards. Here are those dates.
