Electric Religious is the project of Métis singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Brandon Baker, whose guitar-driven music has been described as bursting with inspiration, insight, and hope.
Baker is an undeniably virtuosic guitar player and performer, and has played for audiences as large as 50,000 during the opening ceremonies for Red Bull Crashed Ice 2015 in Edmonton, which was broadcast to over 1.7 million viewers over network television and live YouTube streams. He has an extensive history as a sideman with several other Alberta-based bands (Funkafeelya, King of Foxes, Hot Club Edmonton, Vegas Wives, Colleen Rae, EclecTrip), and has toured and performed continuously over the past decade. His first solo album, Yeah, Yeah, No, garnered him a coveted spot in the 2019 CBC Searchlight Top 100 with its single “Revolution,” which also went to #1 on the Indigenous Music Countdown in September of 2018.
Yeah, Yeah, No (2018) easily found a home among Canada’s lush movement of feel-good guitar pop. “Think Mother Mother and the Stars coming together... “Revolution” hits the ground running, weaving capricious guitar, solid rhythms and anthemic lyrics. There are plenty of twists, turns & genre bending moments... Suffice it to say Yeah, Yeah, No is fit to be played on the radio and very loudly” (Edmonton Muse).
