# 13 Bastian Baker
Swiss singer/songwriter, Bastian Baker has taken Europe by storm with his chart-topping, platinum-selling albums, sold out arenas around the world with the likes of Bryan Adams, Boy George, Shania Twain and more and has taken home numerous music awards. The only thing missing from his career dance card was the United States… until now. Before embarking on a music career, Baker was a third-generation professional hockey player from Switzerland. After trading in his hockey stick for a guitar, Baker made his first professional appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival after an invite from its founder, Claude Nobs. With his talent, undeniable charm and captivating charisma, there’s no doubt of this bona fide trailblazer succeeding on his journey to worldwide superstardom
Bastian is fresh off the road with Shania Twain and had the opportunity to share music from his self-titled fourth/American debut album while on tour. The album was influenced by the 850 shows he’s played in over 40 countries in the last seven years – that is feat for any artists. The genre-defying project was brought to life by producers and songwriters around the globe including GRAMMY Award-winner Jacquire King (Shawn Mendes, Niall Horan, Kings of Leon, Bon Jovi). The latest project showcases Bastian’s down-to-Earth storytelling with writing credits on all 14 tracks.
