I, Allen Baker, am a 26 year old multi talented guy from not so sunny Glasgow, Scotland in the Untied Kingdom.
My musical career has spanned 16 years so far and plan for it to progress a lot further than that. My main instrument has been Bass guitar and as a young kid/teenager had the support of my school teachers, bass tutor and family to get me to today. I would say, modestly that i am one of the best young bass players in Glasgow and have been fortunate so far to play with some of the best bands on the planet. To Date, I have released 8 records with different bands and currently I am working with Glasgow singer/songwriter Cami.
Along with playing Bass Guitar, I have been a avid guitar fan and over the last 8 years have been able to further my Electric guitar playing (Self Taught). I Have released some tracks of my guitar work which can be found on the links further down the page.
My production skills are still very new compared to my instrumental skills. I have been Producing, Recording and Mastering acts for the past 3 years. In that time I have been able to work with some great artists from close and a far and also been able to add my Bass and Electric guitar work onto these works.
At the moment, along with playing with Cami I am fortunate to write and produce her tracks on a weekly basis and home my trade further as well as preforming with her on a regular basis.
I have amassed a substantial recording set up that I use at home and regularly have artists and full bands recording.
As a Web Designer, I have been working at my talent since before I had started being a musician. From around 7 or 8 I was regularly using Commodore systems to write small bits of code and play very basic games. From there I was attending college courses with a family member and as they were learning to type documents I was learning HTML.
As I grew up and Myspace became the 'In Thing' I was using my HTML knowledge to modify my profile and make it more unique. From there I went onto 2 courses at college, I learned a wealth of information I use today but never finished the courses due to issues with members of staff at both college's.
At the present moment in time I have 6 website/servers under my management, all which have website's designed by me (some are shown below) and I continue to further my HTML and computer knowledge to this day.
I currently have my own Wordpress account and use it for my photography skills. This has opened a new avenue for me in teaching me how to use Wordpress correctly. I wouldn't call myself a novice, as I have ran a Wordpress account before, but I am constantly learning new tricks using Wordpress.
I hope you haven't died of boredom, have a look around or contact me and we can discus working together on a project in the future.
