PRESENTED BY TANYA KÖNIG
Music has always been a part of Bastian Baker’s life. Even as a young boy when music wasn’t at the centre of his preoccupations, he lent his voice to a school choir. Today, at only 23, he already sings on Switzerland and Europe’s biggest stages with the self-confidence of experienced performers. To find the first signs of his artistic destiny, a close look at his teen years must be taken; he had his own secret garden, accompanied by just a guitar and a pen. His first texts and his first chords date back to when he was 15, which already gave a glimpse of a possible breakthrough.
It wasn’t long before coming. Discovered by Patrick Delarive, who decided to support him, the singer released a first single, “Lucky”, in 2011. Its success is a veritable explosion: the memorable pop-folk melodic lines are all over the radio. A new name, coming out of nowhere, is carving its way into the musical landscape; the young man writes, composes, arranges and produces his musical dreams. In April of the same year, his encounter with Claude Nobs, the late and missed founder of Montreux Jazz Festival, is an artistic and human revelation. As the young artist was performing in a bar in Zermatt, the great connoisseur recognized his talent and invited him on the off stage of his festival a few months later. In the meantime, the singer sharpens up his knives and impresses the crowds at other Swiss and French festivals.
