Archie Baker returns with another soulful gem with his latest visuals for ‘Holiday‘.
Archie Baker is a London-born, Sheffield-based alternative soul & blues musician. Having moved to Sheffield in 2016, Archie joined a popular soul and blues function band as a guitarist. Whilst playing weddings, summer balls and parties Archie found his niche as a vocalist and began to write his own music. With help from talented musicians around the scene, he developed a style of music suitable for his distinctive vocal style. This is a great story about an underdog who soon made his name and is now known throughout the music scene.
Archie’s music can be characterized by a strong blues and rock foundation with flourishes of funk and soul dusted throughout the sound – creating an eclectic and fresh flavor of modern soul & blues.
With a groovy start, this soon sets up to a the genre-ambiguous soul-fusion track with a thrilling afrobeat rhythm and a screaming jazzy sax solo that we were promised. Archie’s voice is so soulful and I love the mellow style that illuminates the video. This is some grown up music right here and would fit in perfectly in any country in the world that appreciates great music. The vibe is funky fresh and Archie’s band add so much to this fab track.
Archie Baker’s ‘Holiday‘ is the summer song we all needed as it is classy, gets you in the groove and shows us the huge talent of this fantastic artist based in Sheffield.
