“Simultaneously beautiful and broken…Sam Baker is an artist worth waiting for” - NPR All Things Considered

“Maybe the most captivating songwriter in America.” - Lone Star Music

Sam Baker makes people happy. The characters in his songs may face many challenges—alcoholism, car wrecks, racism, drug addiction, a mother’s abandonment—but they persevere. Much like Sam himself.

In 1986, while visiting Peru, Sam got in the middle of someone else’s war. When a terrorist bomb exploded in his train compartment, he went from being a young, healthy, tourist enjoying Peru with friends to a broken man surrounded by death and dying. Given his injuries, he too should have died. But through a series of miracles and coincidences he survived.

As Sam was recovering, his life was filled with pills, booze, and rage. Then came the voices and messengers that helped him see that the greatest gift is life itself. He learned about forgiveness. He needed to tell his story. Songs started to come from that upside-down guitar.
