Kurt Baker Combo

Baby’s Gone Bad
December 5, 2016

kurtbakercomboinorbitdigitalcoverDubbed “The Prince of Power Pop” by Mighty Manfred of The Woggles, the Maine native spent the better part of the last decade in The Leftovers and released three albums as a solo artist. His undeniable knack for channeling older eras of musical influences landed him tours with The Offspring and Tommy Stinson, and evidently, the respect of Steven Van Zandt. Just this week, Little Steven declared “All For You”, the album’s new single, to be The Coolest Song In The World on his SiriusXM21 show.

The Release of Kurt Baker’s In Orbit, marked the relaunch of Steven Van Zandt, guitarist for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band’s, Wicked Cool Records. Evolving out of “Little Steven” Van Zandt’s weekly syndicated radio show and SiriusXM channel Little Steven’s Underground Garage, Van Zandt founded the label as a way to further support new rock & roll that wasn’t receiving the recognition it deserved. Among the label’s releases are ten critically acclaimed compilations including Halloween A Go-Go, Christmas A Go-Go and The Coolest Songs In The World Volumes 1-8, featuring music from the Underground Garage. In 2016 Wicked Cool Records began a unique distribution deal and partnership with The Orchard encompassing both the label’s back catalog and all new Wicked Cool releases.
