Shot Baker plays an honest form of aggressive punk rock with driving melodies and addictive choruses. Being referred to as "a continuation of the best Chicago punk has to offer," Shot Baker has definitely been making their presence known in the music scene. The band possesses many great qualities but their overall enthusiasm and passion is what puts them on a different level from many bands playing today.
Shot Baker is John Krohn (guitar), Nat Wright (bass), Chris Gach (drums), and Tony Kovacs (vocals). The band was formed in 2003 after the demise of the members' previous bands. With a newfound excitement and highly creative chemistry, the band began writing and recording immediately. To date, Shot Baker has released two EP's and a full-length album entitled 'Awake' on Chicago's Underground Communique' Records. They are currently working on their best material yet for a new album to be released Fall of 2007 on Chicago's Riot Fest Records (home of Chicago powerhouses Naked Raygun and The Bollweevils). Shot Baker is constantly promoting and playing shows in and around Chicago, and so far has embarked on East Coast and Southern US tours in addition to constant Midwest excursions with much more touring to come.
Shot Baker isn't here to mix genres, hop on what's popular, or capture a sound. They're here to play music that drives them. It's this simplified way of raw aggression, anger, passion, and love for the music that makes them such a refreshing act to see these days.
