Jordan Rakei x Louis Baker

One of the biggest show announcements was announced late last week and discovered in my Instagram feed - of all places! But nonetheless, I felt the need to share the news - even though some of you may not know either of these artists. It doesn't really matter though, because once you see them live, you're going to want to know more about them. Trust.

Jordan Rakei x Louis Baker

Calling all Melbourne and Brisbane residents! You MUST attend this event.

Even if you haven’t heard of either of these artists, at least go for me because I’ll be away. 🙁

I’m completely heartbroken that I will not be able to attend this very rare and intimate evening in Melbourne because I’m telling you right now that even if I was, and the only show that these two artists were playing was in an Australian city outside of Melbourne, I would be booking a flight this instant.

Both Jordan Rakei and Louis Baker are promising up-and-coming soul singers that are flying under everybody’s radar at the moment, but after these two shows, I am completely confident that they will be on everyone’s radar as artists to watch!

Louis Baker is a talented singer/songwriter from New Zealand with endearingly honest lyrics and mesmerising melodies, matched with a voice reminiscent of the Motown-era.

Brisbane-based performer Jordan Rakei on the other hand, is a raw and rare talent that has already received an abundance of international love from some of the best in the industry including Joe Kay from Soulection, and recently performing along the likes of Roy Ayers and The Robert Glasper Experiment in Philippines. A multi-faceted artist, Rakei has captivated audiences with his blend of experimental and soulful tones across all genres from Hip Hop to Dub, Deep House to Reggae, creating inventive and refreshing music.

So. Damn. Talented. – The pair of them!
