Bio

Raised on a farm by the seaside in rural South Australia, perpetually stoked Cookie Baker has performed live unstoppably her whole life, with the discovery of effortlessly putting the stories she had always written to song and crafting a magical, musical life of sharing them.
Deceivingly gentle melodies, cool wordsmithery, and the sparkling grit of her vocals has brought Cookie to share stages with many esteemed Australian artists, including Augie March, Kate Miller-Heidke, Ben Lee, Angie Hart (Frente), Mick Thomas (Weddings, Parties, Anything) and The Audreys.
Cookie Baker is also a vocalist with festival favourite Sun Records tribute, 'Sun Rising - The Songs That Made Memphis', and is the founder and director of Melbourne-based contemporary choir collective, 'If You See Her, Say Hello'.
Cookie's album, This Is Not A Love Song, was released in November 2019.

It's my weird brain wiring, but, I feel like I can hear ABBA's 'Mama Mia' & John Butler's 'Better Than' in a new aged sound in this tune. I know, it's probably not what you expected. This tune has an undercurrent of angsts and an overcurrent of sunshine.

Rushing, driven, sublime folk and a great voice make this one impressive debut. Push on little engine.
