FROM PHOENIX,ARIZONA BROCK BAKER MOVED TO LA TO SHOWCASE HIS TALENT AND MUSIC TO THE WORLD, I CHAT TO HIM ABOUTBHIS NEW SINGLE ‘FAIRYTALE ENDING’ AND MORE 

 What is your name? Brock Baker

 What is your genre of music?

 My genre of music is Soul Pop
 Give us a little bio about you.

I’ve been performing since I was 4 years old, I was raised in Phoenix Arizona and won a gospel music award for vocals. Shortly after, I moved to Los Angeles and started a career writing pop music and acting for television. I’ve been a session singer for years and have worked on projects for the rascal flats, Glee, and even the new cartoon SING. I currently wrapped a new kids show called “Q-Wunder” with Alyson Stoner and am working on my new personal record.

 What made you go in to music?

 When I first hit the stage I felt at home. I think it made sense to me and as I got older it became more and more clear that I was meant to entertain people. Nobody makes you do it, your heart and your head just know.

Are you signed?

 I’m currently independent. I’ve done the label thing, and it’s good to be signed at the right time. It’s all strategic. 

Your brand song “fairytale ending” comes out on the 30th of August 2016 , tell us more about it.

 I’m excited about the stripped version of Fairytale Ending. It was a song that I wrote for a friend. I asked her why she wasn’t married. She’s so beautiful, kind, and deserved a good man. She was down and out, she was crying with me about how nobody would marry her. I wrote this song for her, sang it to her, and, within a year, sang it to her and her husband as their first dance at their wedding.

What was the writing process like for “fairytale ending”?

This process started with a relationship. Knowing somebody worthy of love, but not receiving it. I was thinking about cheering her up the whole time that I wrote it. From the relationship to the guitar to the lyrics and melody, this one came together and is a song that I love to this day. 

Will we see a new ep or album this year?

 I hope so. If it’s not released this year it will at least be recorded. I’ve been choosing between hundreds of songs that I wrote and it’s been tough to choose which will best suit the direction of my music for the coming year.

Do you have any gigs or tours coming up?

 I currently don’t have anything on the books as I’m recording my record but expect to have some dates in the near future.


You were on the voice and american idol, how were they different?

Most of the crew has worked on both shows. The difference is that they have different judges. Other than that, it’s pretty similar. I think Idol has a better track record for creating artists that stick around, but the voice really does have some incredible talent come through.

You also got cast as a warbler on Glee, How did that come about and what was the best piece of advise you got?

 I received a call one day from the executive music producer of the show one morning saying that “I have an opportunity for you”… I shot out of bed and called back. He had mentioned that he randomly found me on Facebook from a picture that I had tried to take down for weeks (but the computer wouldn’t let me). That very picture booked me the job for Glee. It changed my life. Tim Davis advise to me was to “be the light.” It’s been the best piece of advise that I’ve received in this industry thus far. He will always be at the front of my Thank you list.

Do you play any instruments?

I do. I play guitar, piano, uke, and most stringed instruments come natural.

Who are your influences?

Girls, God, Family, and life experiences. When it comes to musical style, growing up my influences were Bono, Billy Joel, Elton John, Elvis, Celine Dion, and the Bedingfields.

How do you get inspiration to write songs?

 I normally wake up with a melody. If the day doesn’t start with that Ill sit down at the piano and just start playing, or a current event will take place that moves me to the lyric first and I’ll base a melody around that.
Where do you see yourself now in 5 years?

 In 5 years I see myself touring, employing people, producing, writing, married, and living in LA, Nashville, and London.


When you’re not doing music, what do you do?

When I’m not doing music I’m investing time into people. I moved to LA to help people through life issues. It just so happens that music has been a part of that help. I really enjoy coffee and hanging or a solid flick. Im kind of a hopeless romantic, so I don’t really mind a good chick flick every once in awhile. Ha!

What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?

I loved “Sunday Bloody Sunday” by U2, Celine Dion’s “all coming back to me”, Billy Joel’s “for the longest time”, Elvis’ “Jailhouse rock”, Elton John “candle in the wind” Daniel bedingfield “If you’re not the one” & “Gotta get through this”. All of these songs inspired me.
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?

 Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you. I live by the Golden Rule and I can attribute any success that I have to that Gold Standard of living.

What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist?

 Be Original. This world can be very black and white and it’s our job as artists to bring the color to the people. Think of different ways to say the same thing, think of different things to say, open your eyes and ears to your surroundings and be the mouthpiece for your people.

What quote or saying do you always stick by?

 Frank Gifford put his arm around me once and said “age is just a number”… This inspired me to live till I’m 120, to always keep the same spirit that I had when I was 14, and to not let my being young destroy my effectiveness to the old, but not let my being old destroy my effectiveness to the young. 

Where in your hometown is a must go to visit?

 There is this little mexican restaurant called Via de losantos that has a dish called the “marylou” it is unreal. My favorite place in AZ!
 When you are at a gig, what are 5 things you cannot forget?

 1. Water

 2. Capo

 3. Guitar

 4. Set list

 5. Small bag of lays potato chips (grease helps the throat)

Day 7 – #BBWEEKOFVIDSONMOTF

DAY SEVEN VIDEO SEVEN!
It’s the final day of #BBWeekOfVidsOnMOTF and Video number seven is DJ Snake Ft Justin Bieber ‘Let Me Love You’. 
Covering this as a live session I love to see him do something different every now and then.
With Brock’s vocals being deeper in this cover it really gives him that head start with the different vocal tones and ranges in different songs. I love that because everyone is different and makes it his own in a great way!
In parts of this track Brock actually sounds a bit like Bieber as he gets to the chorus then just throws you off with them attractive vocals and the simmering of that great beat.

Day 6 – #BBWEEKOFVIDSONMOTF

 DAY SIX VIDEO SIX!
Brock Baker’s video number six is his cover of Andy Grammer’s song ‘ Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah)’
Straight away diving in to the song is Brock’s fruity vocals, even though it has a slower start to the original it still takes you in the journey of the lyrics just the same. 
Brock added his own touch to his version and it makes it better and the chorus in Brock’s version is again a low beat but still has the catchy rhythm to the track.
The Uke is a fantastic touch to this video and really brings out Brock’s different vocal tones , he has so many and it’s so great to see in the different songs his plays.

Day 5 – #BBWEEKOFVIDSONMOTF

 DAY FIVE VIDEO FIVE!
Brock Baker’s video number five is a cover of the Prince – Kiss
The video to this cover is more plain than the others where it had either guitars in the back or the fire but this is just a plain wall which I think is done on purpose to let you create your own image.
Starting with a bang, the song just comes out of Brock as if it was his own, with the vocals so powerful yet so smooth it just makes you relax instantly and put it on repeat.
I just love how professional this sounds , such high quality vocals which just make your heart melt and and the instrumental just carries you and it’s stunning.

DAY 4 – #BBWEEKOFVIDSONMOTF

 DAY FOUR VIDEO FOUR!
Brock Baker’s video number four is 

Brock’s Original Song ‘Marley’.
Starting it off with a guitar solo lasting around 30 seconds which gives it that build up perfectly.
This is a song that a lot can relate too, you can tell it is written from the heart expressing what he feels and sang so deep and soul. 

The imaginative and creativeness from Brock shines through this song and you need to listen to the message behind this song!

Day 3 – #BBWEEKOFVIDSONMOTF

 DAY THREE VIDEO THREE!
Brock Baker’s video number three is his duet with Loren North. 

The two com together and perform their original song ‘Where Am I’ in a what looks like Living Room session but that doesn’t really matter… 
When this first comes on you hear Brock sing the first line and Loren just come over the top. Having a more laid back feel to this song I just love where it takes you by the end.
It is just sang and written with so much passion, it comes flowing straight out as soon as the two sing.

Brock vocals are more lower but ease you through gently and let’s you listen to the lyrics in a magnificent way then Loren’s higher vocals take the song to the next level giving it their own originality and is so professional.

Day 2 – #BBWEEKOFVIDSONMOTF 

 DAY TWO VIDEO TWO!
Brock Baker’s video number two is another Collaboration Cover…Which features Alyson’s Original song. 
The pair do a Mash up of Rhianna’s Song called ‘Desperado’ and Alyson Stoner’s Original track ‘ Back To Church’ which she released a couple of months back. 
With Brock’ smooth and appealing vocals to Alyson’s silvery vocals, which they just makes you go in to a musical trance of bliss. 
I just love how Brock’s videos are always so simplistic but connects his videos,
