About Head Fake's Michael Baker
Married and uncertain of his future, a young Toronto native, Michael ignored the advice of his musical mentors and headed off to law school, eventually landing in New York City. With a young family and 18-hour workdays, music found its way into his home by singing his young daughters to sleep and exposing them to various genres and styles. Oozing originality, “Hasten Mercy” is destined to create waves by highlighting influences of the '80s such as The Smiths and Stone Roses without changing the essence of his origin.
