Released in Europe, the album has sold over 100,000 copies in Switzerland, France and Belgium.
Since its release in Europe, BASTIAN BAKER has performed hundreds of times in the world’s major venues, including the Olympia in Paris, and has crisscrossed the continent as well as Japan, Thailand, South Korea, Russia and the U.S. As his star has risen, he’s been invited to open concerts for Elton John, Bryan Adams, Johnny Hallyday and Mark Lanegan. Baker has been recognized by a number of awards bodies including the Swiss Music Awards, MTV Europe Music Award and World Music Award.
A coach on The Voice Belgium 2014 alongside Natasha St-Pier, BASTIAN BAKER is one of the young generation most acclaimed artists across France, Switzerland and Belgium.
BASTIAN BAKER: an artist you simply must discover! With a catchy pop sound that flirts with folk and rock, he may just be the next major international star to emerge from Switzerland.
The first single from the album, I’d Sing For You, hit radio across Québec a few days ago.
Here he is performing with Julie Carpino, the finalist on his team from The Voice Belgium 2014.
Bastian Baker is the third Swiss artist to have the honour of appearing on famed French program Taratata in 2012, following Stephan Eicher and Sophie Hunger.
