Lorraine Baker – drums / Paul Michael – electric bass / John Turville – piano / Alex Merritt- tenor saxophone
Lorraine Baker is a drummer, percussionist and bandleader. Originally from Kent, she started playing the drums for a local swing band when she was 14 years old. She gained a great deal of valuable experience here and went on to graduate from Trinity Laban with First Class Honours in 2009.
Lorraine is embarking on a 19 date UK tour funded by Arts Council England to support the launch of her debut album “Eden,” released on independent jazz label Spark!
Critically acclaimed pianist and mentor Liam Noble features on the album but will be replaced by the award winning John Turville for the tour. Lorraine’s lifelong musical partner Paul Michael features heavily on electric bass and the quartet is completed by virtuosic saxophonist Alex Merritt.
