The Baker Suite
Folk/pop cinematic storytelling, The Baker Suite sit somewhere between Paul Simon and the soundtrack of the film Amelie.The core of The Baker Suite is John Baker (guitar) and Gayle Buckby (accordion).
Art-folk, jazz-pop, French Cafe and cabaret romantica . . . all terms which have been used to describe The Baker Suite. Storytelling is at the heart of their music, built around a warm combination of acoustic guitar and parisian-esque accordion.
Captivating vocals, catchy, offbeat guitar picking and a swig of poetry, you can see why Mary Webb has been described as "a shining light" in Adelaide's Folk scene.
With familial ties to both Adelaide and Melbourne, Mary has spent much of the past few years travelling between the two, and has built up a solid reputation in these scenes as both performer and songwriter. A strong background in classical and choral music has stood her in good stead, though her music now also suggests Jazz and Folk have been powerful influences. Mary’s songs are thoughtful yet frank, exploring relationships between people and their lovers, friends, family, and themselves, and what it is to be human.
