At the age of 22, James Baker isn’t afraid of much. It has to be said that, at an age when some people are slow to leave the nest, the kid already has a few hours’ flying under his belt. As comfortable with a microphone as behind the camera or on the networks, James Baker shamelessly navigates between disciplines with contemporary ease.

If music ended up being the obvious choice for him, it was above all because it allowed him to reconcile his passions for sound and image. In the blink of an eye, James Baker has gone from YouTube videos to polished music videos, playing the soundtrack to an era that is moving at the speed of light anyway.

There’s no need to bother with labels, he refuses them. The young artist from the Paris suburbs uses the codes of rap, the energy of pop and the groove of funk to carve out a tailor-made suit that fits him perfectly. It’s a gamble that has paid off, allowing him to resonate with a generation whose voice he speaks loud and clear with his deep timbre and incisive punchlines, packed with humour and self-mockery.

Quinze millions de streams plus tard, James Baker présente son tout premier disque en 2023, après avoir pris le temps de peaufiner ses titres le temps d’une pause post-covid. James Baker explore son quotidien avec un humour incisif et des rimes bien senties, il décrit sa réalité, et nous embarque dans son univers pour raconter ses amours, ses galères, son enfance et ses ambitions.
