Originally from Dallas, Texas, David Allen Baker now calls southern California home. A varied music career has taken him from Dallas to Fairbanks (Alaska), Nashville, New York City and Los Angeles. He has toured and performed as a vocalist with a number of artists, including Robert John, Peter Rivera (of Rare Earth), the New Mamas and the Papas, under the direction of John Phillips, the Surf City All-Stars featuring Dean Torrance and others.

He performed at Carnegie Hall in January 2000 debuting the album 'Sounds of a Better World', performing with the likes of Martha Wash, Odetta, Jeffery Holder and the Tokyo String Quartet. You can now hear Baker performing 5 nights per week at the Montage Resort and Spa in Laguna Beach.

Baker's recording career has consisted of innumerable song demos, records, corporate industrial productions, TV promos, in-show performances, radio jingles and TV advertisements ranging in styles from country to rock to folk to R&B. He co-wrote the Asahi Beer ad campaign for the Japanese market in 2002. Baker has also been heard as a vocalist on CBS's The Guardian and The Agency, as well as on promos for the ABC show, Gideon's Crossing and in many cable television productions.

Baker, along with disgustingly talented producer/songwriter/instrumentalist/vocalist, Rick Cowling, co-produced a solo CD for Baker in early 2002 entitled 'Ten For The Road' and songs or adaptations from that CD have been used in promos for NBC's Third Watch and in-show on NBC's Las Vegas. Baker's second release, also co-produced by Rick Cowling, is a collection of ten great pop/rock song covers entitled 'Cover To Cover, Collection 1' and has proven to be very popular. Baker's newest release is an all-original live performance from May 16, 2012 at DPS, Inc. in Irvine. Joined on-stage by Rick Cowling on guitars and backing vocals, this 2-disk set, DVD and CD contains 10 of Baker's songs and interview segments before each live performance. An incredibly memorable evening with fans and friends captured on 6 HD cameras and supported technically by the amazing production crew at DPS, Inc.
