Award winning guitarist Kenya Baker has been a touring musician for most of his life. For four years, he was lead guitarist for Grammy Award winner Joss Stone, touring internationally and playing for dignitaries including President Clinton and the British Royal Family. One highlight was playing for the Princess Diana Memorial Concert at Wembley Stadium, which was attended by more than 63,000 people and broadcast worldwide. Kenya began playing music in his father’s church and, as a teenager, was touring on the gospel quartet circuit. Then he became immersed in the Oakland R&B scene in its heyday and played with the finest Oakland musicians, including touring with Lucy Pearl, Digital Underground and Tony!Toni!Tone!. Kenya is a multi-talented musician, composer and music producer. He has a gold album for his original song “Top of the World” (under the name Kenya Gruv) which is featured on the Menace II Society soundtrack, and a platinum album for his collaboration on “The Revival” by Tony!Toni!Tone!. He’s worked with other notable artists including Tupac Shakur and Eric Benet.
