'CLEVER, SOPHISTICATED, LAID-BACK, PERSONAL AND INSPIRING' -- RIP IT UP

'A PRODIGIOUS TALENT' -- THE ADVERTISER

WITH ONE HAND IN THE INDIE-FOLK PIE AND THE OTHER FAUX-PRISSY-WHITE-GLOVED HAND FIRMLY ENTRENCHED IN POP CABARET, COOKIE BAKER IS A PINT-SIZED FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.

A SOUTH AUSTRALIA-BORN, MELBOURNE-BASED AWARD-WINNING SONGWRITER AND PERFORMER WHOSE MUSIC AND LYRICS HAVE FEATURED IN TELEVISION, FILM, PUBLISHED NOVELS AND THEATRE, MISS COOKIE HAS DEVELOPED LIVE STAGE AMMUNITION THAT STRETCHES THE BOUNDARIES OF CONTEMPORARY LIVE PERFORMANCE TO ENCOMPASS BOTH THE INDIE WORLD AND THE LUSH, MELODRAMATIC ARENA OF CABARET.

THIS UNIQUE TAKE ON CONTEMPORARY LIVE MUSIC AND THE WAY IN WHICH IT IS PRESENTED HAS SEEN COOKIE SHARE STAGES WITH MANY ESTEEMED POPULAR LIVE ARTISTS (INCLUDING AUGIE MARCH, LITTLE BIRDY, KATE MILLER-HEIDKE, BEN LEE, OLD MAN RIVER AND THE AUDREYS), WHILST SELLING OUT SEASONS OF HER SELF-PRODUCED CABARET PERFORMANCES IN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND.

USING WARM MELODIES, COOL WORDSMITHERY AND A SUGAR-VELVET VOICE WRAPPED IN WHIMSICAL GUITAR 'N' PIANO LICKS AND FLECKED WITH HAUNTINGLY SPARSE STRINGS AND BARNYARD PERCUSSION, COOKIE'S DEBUT ALBUM GALA DAY WAS RELEASED NATIONALLY THROUGH MIXMASTERS RECORDS AND MGM IN 2008, WHICH ABC RADIO LABELLED 'A PIQUANT, POIGNANT AND EVOCATIVE RELEASE'.

CURRENTLY BASED IN MELBOURNE, MISS COOKIE HAS TOURED EXTENSIVELY THROUGHOUT QUEENSLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES, ACT, VICTORIA, SOUTH AUSTRALIA AND WESTERN AUSTRALIA, PERFORMS CONSISENTLY IN AND AROUND MELBOURNE AND IS CURRENTLY DEVELOPING HER 2012 ADELAIDE FRINGE SHOW, 'TO SARASUTA', FEATURING HER EXTENDED AND EVER-EVOLVING LIVE ENSEMBLE, HER SPECIAL SECRET SPELLS.

AND THE NAME? WELL, YOU'LL JUST HAVE TO ASK COOKIE YOURSELF!
