Hello, friends! Missi & Mister Baker want to thank all of you who supported us by attending and/or contributing to our South by Southwest Send-Off show in February. From the bottom of our hearts, we appreciate your love and good wishes as we blazed a trail to Austin! Thanks also for getting the word out about our project: Just a simple “like” on our Facebook page is so valuable to our mission.
It is our distinct pleasure to bring both roots and modern blues from Portland to an international audience. The SXSW Music Conference celebrated its 30th year in 2016. Over 30,000 people from all over the world attended this festival featuring a mashup of musicians hailing from all over the US and the world. Missi & Mister Baker are proud to be one of only a handful of Portland bands selected this year for an official showcase. We were also honored to play other shows with some of Austin’s finest musicians.
We’re now busy producing a new collection of songs with a particular focus on acoustic roots blues with lots of Mister Baker’s killer lap steel! Find several full-length samples on our Bandcamp page — streaming is free — just search for Missi & Mister Baker.
Love to you, Cascade Blues Association!
Missi & John
