Höglin Baker

Once Upon AlbumPurchased

Gavin Baker and Stefan Höglin play newgrass and alt-country music on the banjo and acoustic guitar. They joined forced in March 2015 and released their debut album entitled Once Upon in October 2016. The album has been released by Big Pink Records on cd and as a download. The duo live in Kongsberg, Norway but neither of them are Norwegian: Gavin is from England and Stefan is from Sweden. They have both been active in rock bands in the past: Stefan played keyboards in Euroboys and Gavin was a member of post rock band Billy Mahonie. This is however their first venture into acoustic country-ish music. They play nontraditional newgrass music; that is to say they play bluegrass instruments but don't play strict playing bluegrass. Inspired by folks like John Hartford, Skip Spence, The Grateful Dead and pretty much every country and country rock band they have ever heard and loved. They recorded their debut album of original material in the spring of 2016. On record they were joined by Dave Baker, Gavin's father on mandolin. So sit back, take the weight off and let yourself get lost in the uplifting, eloquent and intimate alt-country sounds of Höglin Baker. For songs of love, loss, riots and exploding gunpowder mills look no further.
