“I don’t know how this guy’s head doesn’t explode with the amount of dynamite power pop melodied he has going off constantly…boy, does it make you smile.”- RPM Online

“What a tune, and what a great freaking band! This album is gonna be a monster.”- Faster & Louder

“New England’s Kurt Baker makes some of the finest vintage sounding power pop out there. It sounds like when the Ramones would cover classic rock tunes from the 60’s, mixed with the sweetness of Big Star and the huge guitar solos of Cheap Trick.”- If It’s Too Loud

“Kurt Baker continues to impress… joined by Wyatt Funderburk, Geoff Palmer, and Kris Rodgers, it sounds like a potential top-ten LP.”- Power Popaholic

Baker says, “She Don’t Wanna Be Alone” is a song that I think a lot of my old school fans will enjoy. John Lennon & the Beatles being a big influence. Wyatt and I co-wrote this song and it was one of those collaborations when everything just comes together so quickly! We threw a Mellotron as another nod to the Beatles – but I also I love how it sounds on “Go Let It Out” by Oasis, which probably was most definitely influenced by the Beatles. Basically, let’s face it, the Beatles are the greatest band in the world and “Rock N Roll Club” is my greatest record yet so boom goes the dynamite!”

What People Have Written About Kurt Baker’

“Power-pop perfection.”- Billboard

“…punk-meets-Elvis Costello rocking… definitely fits in the power pop mold, but also has a heavier guitar presence that gives it more energy and intensity. Baker also incorporates a subtle New Wave touch, bringing to mind some of the finest rock gems of the 1980s… gets you excited for when we will finally be able to see acts like them perform live one day.”- Glide Magazine

“Would make Elvis Costello proud… a record brimming with sweet harmonies, razor-sharp hooks, and addictive melodies…bringing to mind everyone from Jellyfish to Material Issue at various points of the record… A remarkably fun album by one of the most consistently solid acolytes of power pop working today.”- New Noise

“It’s got that new wave/power pop meets early ’80s FM rock (Donnie Iris, Cheap Trick, .38 Special) vibe with just a hint of ’90s Lookout! Records. If you’re into big hooks, punchy guitars, and catchy choruses, this album will not leave you wanting. Say what you will about 2020. But any year that gives us a new Kurt Baker record can’t be entirely bad!”- Faster & Louder

“Kurt Baker does the power pop thing like a champ…the hooks are full of pop goodness and the singalongs come from all directions.”- That’s Good Enough For Me

“…a 12 track alt-rock masterclass. Traversing varying sonic landscapes such as new romantic, post-punk, power-pop et cetera, this set will thrill legitimate longtime fans and new converts alike.”- Global Texan Chronicles

“One of the bright lights keeping the flames of power pop lit.”- Jersey Beat

“Blending his signature indie garage rock and power pop styles, “Outta Sight” is packed with sweet melodies and grittier dynamics.”- Rebel Noise

“This could easily be Baker’s best album to date.”- Real Gone Rocks

“Confirms Kurt Baker as something of a power-pop genius. ‘After Party’ is a lockdown tonic we should all take a swig of. – RPM Online

“……a total spoil of riches for any fan of 80s culture.”- American Songwriter
