Growing up on music like Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Aerosmith, The Beatles, Pearl Jam, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Stone Temple Pilots, etc, I knew from the very beginning that I wanted to play guitar. Well my name is Tad Baker, but many know me by my other two affiliations known as Black Eagle & T. R. Baker. I watched as the years went by, and kept saying to myself "Wow the music today really isn't the same as it used to be." To me the NEW music just didn't cut it because I knew having grown up on great classic music that those artists from my fathers generation where the much better artists. There are some new acts around today that I do like though like Stone Sour, Foo Fighters, & Staind.
I went to a Trade School where I took up two courses, so with those courses being Music Theory & Graphic Communications I started on my to becoming the artist I am today. I wrote my very first REAL song (Empty Highway) in Senior year of high school, although the song went through many tweaks until it ended up on my 2nd homemade album titled Reaching. I took acoustic guitar lessons for a year before I went on to take solo voice lessons from my music teacher. My debut album came out on November 11th 2013, and my second album made it's debut on April 20th 2014. With my two first albums out back to back I have decided to put the third album on the back-burner, and this is only because a lot of it is already done. I am going to get more collaboration on this third one though. Much of my influence has mainly come from groups like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Doors & Pearl Jam.
I've been creating all of my own artwork through image capturing, and photo editing using the well known software Photoshop. My logo is unique as well, and it sets the stage for a very spiritual experience. I write acoustic instrumentals as well as write some great lyrics. My vocal style is a mix of Robert Plant & Eddie Vedder. My voice is a mix of Baritone and Tenor.
