Erick Baker

I didn’t grow up singing or playing music. I’ve never had voice lessons, and it wasn’t until after college that I started teaching myself how to play guitar. So, if you’d told me then that I’d end up making a living as a singer-songwriter, I wouldn't have believed you. Even now, with the upcoming release of my fifth studio album, Morning Light, I can barely believe it.

I hadn’t seriously considered pursuing a career in music until May 9, 2007, when I walked off stage after opening for John Legend. One set, six songs in just thirty minutes, changed my life forever. Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to play with artists like Heart, Brandi Carlile, Gavin DeGraw, James Blunt, Grace Potter, Goo Goo Dolls, as well as tour Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, performing for our men and women in uniform stationed overseas.

Music has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. Without music, I may have never met the two greatest loves of my life, my wife, Mandy, and my daughter, Annabelle Rose Baker. So, I see my songs as a celebration of every right turn and wrong turn that has led me here, and not a day goes by that I don’t give thanks for that old wood box with six strings.

Along with my career in music, I’m also an Emmy Award winning writer and host of the national PBS travel television series Tennessee Valley Uncharted, which showcases the beauty, culture, and adventure across the Southeast. After years of touring the world as a singer-songwriter and seeing life pass by through a windshield, I’m now getting the opportunity, as the host of Tennessee Valley Uncharted, to explore and rediscover how great The Valley is one city at a time.

Hey, Jordy here!

I write and play songs for a living. I live in Nashville, TN with my brother, and I love sailing & tea. College dropout/Enneagram 4. More of a poker guy than a nerts guy.

In 2016, my friend Scooter and I started booking house shows around the southeast. We played a whoole lot of shows before landing on the songs that felt right. In early 2018, I made a record with my friends called Dark In The City, and I’m really proud of it!

Some people have compared me to artists like Ben Rector, Phoebe Bridgers, Vance Joy, and Jon Foreman. My hope is that you find something meaningful in my music. I'd love to talk about it at a show (check out my tour schedule) or you can hit me up on socials, @jordysearcymusic. Thanks for listening!
