Happy New Year! 2013 went out with a bang as Naked Cake once again ABSOLUTELY ROCKED the Montage Laguna Beach Lobby Lounge on NYE, and 2014 came in (at least for me) with fresh Hawaiian breezes and lots of R&R! I hope you've had a wonderful start to your new year.

I'm excited to announce the launch of my new Facebook page, David Allen Baker Music. I will be posting status updates containing videos and news, along with performance dates and all things DAB there! Please visit and "like" the page!

I am also now on Twitter! Follow me @dabdab59

I will be doing a national press release in the coming weeks to promote my new live DVD/CD release, 'DPS Backstage featuring David Allen Baker', which is a ten-song, all-original performance from May 16, 2012. My amazing collaborator, Rick Cowling, joined me on-stage for an incredibly memorable evening in front of a great audience of friends and fans. Captured on 6 HD cameras and with the support of the wonderful crew at DPS, Inc., this show represents a serious step forward in my long career and I could not be more proud of this work. The DVD also features interview segments before each song, in which I talk about the process of writing and expose some of the inspirations for my music. The CD contains all of the music from the show so you can enjoy it anywhere you cannot play the DVD. Three videos from the show,"Woman Is A Mystery", "Holding On To Nothing" and "Drive L.A." are currently posted on my David Allen Baker YouTube Page if you want to get a feel for the show. I hope you buy the package for yourself and consider giving it as birthday gifts during the year. There is also a new video for "Drive L.A." produced by some neighborhood girls here in Dana Point and it is a blast! Check it out.

In other news, I appear as a guest vocalist and songwriter on my great friend Dennis Winslow's latest project, Shoebox Letters' 'Better Times.' The CD contains great songwriting and production, rootsy and rockin', with multiple male and female vocalists a la Fleetwood Mac. I co-wrote and sang "There's A Cowboy" and sang "Haven't I Let You Go." Available on CD Baby and iTunes.

And last but certainly not least, I continue my regular 5 nights per week schedule in the Montage Laguna Beach Lobby Lounge, playing all of your favorites from The Beatles to Coldplay. Gorgeous setting and ambience, so come see me! Also, this month, the Montage Impressions Magazine is running an article featuring musicians from three of the Montage properties. Yours truly is one of those featured artists. Read the article here. For my performance schedule, stay tuned to my Appearances page.

Let's GO!
