In 1986 Sam Baker was on a train in Peru that was bombed by Shining Path Guerillas. Miraculously he survived and went on to become a great songwriter and is fast becoming one of the biggest underground Americana success stories of recent years. Imagine Steve Earle, Shane MacGowan and Johnny Cash jamming in a back street Texas bar when in comes Nick Cave and the spirit of Townes Van Zandt.
"Over his dreamy electric-guitar themes, buttressed by trumpet, keys, percussion, strings and more guitar, Baker's conversational voice (and his mist-filled black-and-white photographs) evokes the twilight shadows that inhabit the beautiful landscape of doubt." (The Washington Post)
