The peripatetic singer-songwriter MICHAEL BAKER released “Claire” from his forthcoming second album, titled “Salt” in April [via Keys To The Kingdom.]

The song made it as: “record of the day…” We saw Michael play live, this weekend, at The Great Escape [sans piano]

Ice cool piano strokes pitch & stumble like loose ice pinnacles on a spin-drifting winter tide.

The luminous voice is glossy, hazel-butter bright, but offered with a poignant lemon-juice heart. It’s a melancholy look at nebulous yearning but without heartbreak or any self-regard.

This is impeccable in its developing beauty.
