New Zealand Songwriter Releases New Single

Having relocated from Melbourne, Australia, and settled into an off-the-grid permaculture farm north of Auckland in homeland New Zealand – singer-songwriter Brian Baker has gotten busy setting up a new studio space and recording this new song “Everywhere You Go”. The song has a wonderfully laid-back and sincere sentiment with some excellent guitar work. It deals with separation, that while in these times often we can’t hold our loved ones or be in their physical presence, we hold them in our hearts and minds.  “I left family in Melbourne to set up back home in New Zealand,” explains Brian. “This song is simply an expression of the accompanying emotions and I’m thinking that pretty much everyone can relate to those in some way or another.” Brian has also turned his crafty art skills to creating a simple lyric video with an organic vibe. Suitable for the song and from where it is – straight from the heart.
